Kobe Bryant played (of course) tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves, and he seemed to be moving just fine on his sprained left ankle. His shooting looked out of whack, however. He missed six of his first eight shots and had only six points (on a pair of 3-pointers late in the half). Pau Gasol scored 15 points and Andrew Bynum had 10 points and eight rebounds. Wes Johnson had 17 points and Kevin Love had 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Timberwolves. The Lakers won 14 in a row over Minnesota.
