The two worst teams in the Western Conference play at Staples Center tonight. Chat about the game here.

The Timberwolves and Lakers play tonight at Staples Center in a matchup between the two worst teams in the Western Conference (9:30 CST). Minnesota is 3-10 while the Lakers are 3-12. Both teams are on three game losing streaks.

All I have to say is this: at least the Wolves have Andrew Wiggins and a collection of other promising young players. The Lakers have the biggest chucker in the league in Kobe Bryant -- almost 24 shots per game on 37.9 percent. Toss in some Carlos Boozer, Wes Johnson, and Swaggy P off the bench... the injury depleted Wolves actually have a good chance in this game. It should be a competitive contest, but we'll see what happens.

Keep your eye on Shabazz Muhammad and Zach LaVine, who make their return to Los Angeles. I'm sure the former UCLA "one-and-done" guys want to show up in a big way.

Expected Lineups:

Wolves:

PG: Mo Williams / SG: Corey Brewer / SF: Andrew Wiggins / PF: Thad Young / C: Gorgui Dieng

Lakers:

PG: Jeremy Lin / SG: Kobe Bryant / SF: Wes Johnson (!!!!!) / PF: Carlos Boozer (?????) / C: Jordan Hill
