The Timberwolves lost 105-102 at home against the Los Angeles Lakers Friday night.  Minnesota played without forward Kevin Love who couldn't play because of back spasms.  Derrick Williams missed a shot in the lane with just seconds left that could have given the Wolves the lead.  Nikola Pekovic led the Wolves with 25 points and 13 rebounds, Derrick Williams had 22 points and 10 rebounds and Ricky Rubio added 15 points and 10 assists.

Ricky Rubio sustained a knee injury when Kobe Bryant ran into Rubio in the final minute.  Rubio needed to be helped off the court.  An MRI will be done on Rubio's knee today.  The Wolves are 21-20 and will host New Orleans tonight at 7pm, pregame on WJON at 6:30.
