The Los Angeles Lakers got back to .500 with a 108-103 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.

LeBron James led the way with 26 points as Los Angeles improved to 19-19. It ends his streak of seven straight 30-point games. Malik Monk added 22 points and Russell Westbrook had 20.

It was a revenge victory for the Lakers, as they lost the previous two meetings against the Timberwolves earlier this season. The two teams will meet one more time this year in March.

The Timberwolves fell to 16-20 after their third straight loss. Naz Reid had a season-high 23 points to go with 11 rebounds.

Minnesota was playing without star big man Karl-Anthony Towns and point guard D’Angelo Russell, who are both in the NBA’s health and safety protocols.
