Wolves score 47 points in one quarter vs Lakers
Minnesota dropped a franchise record 47 points in the first quarter. Lobe’s 18 first-quarter points nearly totaled the Lakers’ total output (23). Love and Martin made 12 of their first 14 shots, and that still didn’t prompt the Lakers to take them seriously enough to put a body on them. This all gave the 18,997 fans at Staples Center too many reasons to boo before even 1/4 of the game was completed.
“Forty seven points in one quarter is outrageous,” Lakers center Pau Gasol said. “We have to put more pressure. We have to force them into taking tougher shots. They made some tough ones. But once they got going, we have to figure out how to take some guys out of the game.”
