MINNEAPOLIS — The Lakers did not practice, so there’s not much to report today. One item to chew on, though. If the Lakers beat the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday, they will move closer to sealing the best record in the Western Conference. The Lakers have 27 games remaining, including the two on this trip, and if they go 20-7 the rest of the way for a final record of 65-17, the San Antonio Spurs would have to run the table in order to catch them. The Spurs were 36-17 going into tonight’s game at Washington.
