Bryant, Lakers look to rebound vs. Timberwolves

Nov 7, 2006 - 2:35 PM Minnesota (2-2) at LA Lakers (3-1) 10:30 pm EST

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) - The Los Angeles Lakers stumbled the last time they were on the court. They will try and get back on track when the Minnesota Timberwolves come calling Tuesday.

Superstar Kobe Bryant was less than impressive in the Lakers' 117-101 road setback Sunday to the Seattle SuperSonics, scoring just 15 points on 4-of-10 shooting.

Los Angeles committed 22 turnovers and trailed by as many as 26 points after halftime in the defeat. The Lakers had won their first three games of the season, including a 118-112 home triumph over Seattle two days earlier.

It was Lakers coach Phil Jackson's first road game of the season. He did not make the trip for the team's first away contest after recovering from offseason hip surgery.

The Lakers hope to get more out of Lamar Odom, who scored 11 points on six shots in the defeat. In his first three games this season, Odom averaged 16 shots.

Mike James scored 23 points and perennial All-Star Kevin Garnett contributed 15 and 10 rebounds for the Timberwolves in Monday's 93-81 loss to the Sacramento Kings, which dropped them to 1-2 on their four-game road trip.

The Timberwolves won three of four meetings from the Lakers last season.

No one has shouted yet.
