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).

While other key players Pascal Siakam had 21 points, Kyle Lowry 16 points and Serge Ibaka 14 points.

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

Chandler went to school in the Compton section of L.A. but has been accustomed to a hostile reception at Staples Center, so he will lap up any adulation from Lakers fans. And while he scored only two points, he had nine rebounds, including two critical offensive rebounds on taps in the game's final 42 seconds.

The 36-year-old centre played 23 minutes on his debut on Wednesday, a day after the Lakers signed him, but looked completely at home in a 114-110 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. "And then part of it is also understanding where we might be getting beat and anticipate being there to help guys out".

Jimmy Butler added 24 for the Timberwolves, who dropped to 4-8 and remained winless on the road this season. Thibodeau used the same starting lineup from Monday's loss to the Clippers. Hart hit four 3-pointers in the first half, and Kuzma hit a buzzer-beating 3 to limit Minnesota's lead to 67-65. Minnesota had a 32-30 lead after the first 12 minutes. "That's a far, far away goal right now", he admitted.

"Having observed our roster for the first 10 games of this young season, one of the areas that Earvin and I discussed with Luke that we desired to upgrade is interior defense and rebounding", said Pelinka.

Walton's men are now 5-6, with the Lakers facing the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night.
