It was March 6, 2007.
It was also the last time the Timberwolves defeated the Los Angeles Lakers, 117-107 in double overtime.
Since then, Minnesota has failed to beat the Lakers in 20-straight contests between the two teams. That's the longest active NBA streakfor one team over another.
Could that change tonight at Staples Center?
Let's just say the Wolves -- once again -- will be playing shorthanded, with Andre Kirilenko out of the lineup again (his third injury this year) with a strained left calf.
The Lakers, meanwhile, still aren't a playoff team -- but they're a lot closer to the Western Conference 8th-spot (2.5 games behind Houston) than the Wolves are (8.5 games behind Houston).
