The Lakers-Timberwolves play-in game was, let’s be honest, a bit of a tough watch. There was 40+ turnovers between each team and the game went into OT.
But LA came out winners and they will now face Memphis in the playoffs, while the Timberwolves will play the winner of Pels v Thunder.
NBA Twitter reacted to the game in the most perfect way:
