Lakers-Wolves preview

MINNEAPOLIS — Keep a close watch on Lamar Odom of the Lakers and Kevin Love of the Timberwolves, a pair of power forwards who are at the top of their games to start the season. Odom is averaging 14.9 points on 58.8 percent shooting plus 10.8 rebounds and 3.7 assists despite playing with a sprained left thumb. Love, a former UCLA standout, is averaging 18.9 points, 14.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists despite playing on a last-place team. Love’s 31-point, 31-rebound game last week against the Knicks is the single best performance of the season so far. The Lakers are 10-2 and the Timberwolves are 4-9, so it shouldn’t be close. Odom and Love will keep it interesting, though.
