Lebron James leads Lakers to win over Timberwolves in National Basketball Association

Former Sun Tyson Chandler officially signs with Lakers

Since it's fairly unusual for a team to grant a player a buyout so early in the season, there's a belief that Suns interim general manager James Jones was doing LeBron a favor.

Ben Simmons flirted with a triple double, finishing with 16 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists for the 76ers, who were 6-0 at home and 0-5 on the road coming into Wednesday's contest.

The Los Angeles Lakers were -22 over their past five games in the rebounding battle prior to Thursday's game against the Wolves.

Tyson Chandler - the veteran big man who just reached a buyout agreement with Phoenix - had a solid debut for the Lakers, grabbing 9 rebound, including two huge offensive boards in the closing seconds.

LeBron James had 24 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists, and Kyle Kuzma scored six of his 21 points in the final minutes of the Lakers' 114-110 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Through the incredibly small sample size of one game, the results have been good, as Chandler made life hell for Karl-Anthony Towns in the team's 114-110 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

"I've been on the other side and played the villain, " he added.




Magic Johnson has said that Walton's job is safe for now and that he'll finish out the year as head coach (granted nothing "drastic" happens, whatever that may mean), but the addition of Chandler certainly helps his chances of having more than just this year to work for the organization.

Kuzma's fourth 3-pointer put the Lakers up 111-104 with 1:51 to play for their biggest lead of the night.

"I think it helps stabilize us", Walton said.

Powered by their veteran backcourt, the Timberwolves got 31 points from Derrick Rose and 24 from Jimmy Butler.

Thibodeau said Butler, who has requested a trade, is still trying to get in game shape.

Timberwolves: At the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.
