The 114-110 win brought their early season record to an nearly respectable 5-6 to stand 10th in the Western Conference, but it was not guaranteed until the final seconds of the game. And Chandler didn't disappoint, hauling in nine rebounds.

Lebron James flirted with another triple-double and Kyle Kuzma came through the final stretch as the Los Angeles Lakers outlasted the Minnesota Timberwolves, 114-110, in National Basketball Association action at the Staples Center on Wednesday night, November 7 (Thursday, November 8, Manila time).

The Los Angeles Lakers are still piecing things together in this first season with LeBron James on the roster.

Timberwolves point guard Derrick Rose put in yet another outstanding performance with 31 points that included 7-for-9 from beyond the arc.

The result means that the Lakers have now won five games and lost six as they continue they campaign with new recruit Tyson Chandler making his debut. This week, the team was able to make one valuable addition, signing Tyson Chandler after he was waived by the Phoenix Suns. Jimmy Butler adds 24 points in the loss.

Head coach Luke Walton has found it hard to integrate the NBA's best player amid a roster equal in both adolescence and dogged experience. He said he was unsure of Ball's status for the team's game against the Kings.

Typically, veterans on struggling teams like Chandler get waived around mid-season, when we have a good idea of what teams are playoff bound and what their needs are. "I'd like to say it is going to be better the next game".

In two of his last three games, Lonzo Ball has scored 12 points, shooting 66 percent against Dallas and 71 percent against Toronto.

Jones played with James in Miami, and followed him to the Cleveland Cavaliers late in his career. "It's wonderful. I haven't played with a closer like that since Dirk".

"It's been a insane 48 hours", Chandler said after the game.
