The victory improved the Lakers' record a league-best 21-3.

Anthony Davis had plenty of motivation to put up a season-high 50 points against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night, encouraged by teammate DeMarcus Cousins and enabled by the rest of his Los Angeles Lakers teammates to shine with a blockbuster performance.

James, Davis and the Lakers take on the Timberwolves for the first time this season, as Minnesota finds themselves in the mix for a playoff spot in the Western Conference at 10-11.

(And, ironically enough, Ceballos' 50-point game came on December 20, 1994 against - you guessed it - Minnesota). He had 32 points, four rebounds and 13 assists en route to helping he and Davis become the first teammates to have 50-plus points, 30-plus points and 10-plus assists in the same game. It marked just the fourth time in his career that he's hit the 50-point milestone, and his first with the Lakers.

"It's been fun", said Davis, who joined the Lakers in the summer.

The wind also picks up tonight pushing wind chills into the single digits both above and below-zero for the morning commute. At this time, the most significant snowfall looks to occur across southeast Kentucky, but we will be watching that closely.

Davis had 42 points through three quarters, one more than his previous single-game high this season, 41 points in his return to New Orleans on November 27.

Anthony Davis dropped 50 points while shooting 20-of-29 from the field to lead the Lakers past the Timberwolves on Sunday night.

It was Doncic's 19th straight game recording at least 20 points, five rebounds and five assists.

The Lakers outscored the Timberwolves 32-22 over the final 12 minutes.

Opposing defenses have already looked stumped when trying to defend the team's one-two punch as they can not double either player due to their ability to pass the ball. "I live too much in the moment".
