Tyson Chandler eager to ease LeBron James’ burden with Lakers

LOS ANGELES-LeBron James scored 24 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds as the Los Angeles Lakers held on to beat the struggling Minnesota Timberwolves 114-110 at Staples Center.

Following Wednesday's 114-11- win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, another incident was brewing as Rondo referred a derogatory comment towards a reporter.

Chandler had been phased out to a limited bench role with rookie Deandre Ayton as the focal point in the frontcourt as the starter.

Tyson Chandler cleared waivers this week after being granted a buyout from the Phoenix Suns, and he immediately signed a veteran minimum contract with the Lakers. And until Wednesday night, he had played 1,086 career games - but zero with his hometown Lakers.

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

The team signed center Tyson Chandler, notorious for his defensive prowess down low, two days after the Lakers were dismantled by the Raptors to the tune of a 121-107 loss.

While other key players Pascal Siakam had 21 points, Kyle Lowry 16 points and Serge Ibaka 14 points. After Chandler twice extended the Lakers' ensuing possession, Kuzma hit one of two free throws with 9.5 seconds left.

"They're not going to give me that call", Rose said with a shrug. The 20 made 3-pointers set a Minnesota franchise record.

James, coach Walton and Brandon Ingram were all full of praise for Chandler after the game and believe the veteran can make an impact going into the rest of the campaign.

Lakers: James fell just shy of his 75th triple-double, but scored nine points in the fourth quarter.

Minnesota was outrebounded 47-40, and it was most glaring in that final minute. "It was great to get the first win out the way, be out there, be a part [of the team], playing competitive basketball, and like you said, being able to help the team out I've watched my whole life. We have to figure out a way to go get the ball".

Lakers: At the Sacramento Kings on Saturday night.
