LeBron James, Lakers win another nail-biter, hold off Derrick Rose, Timberwolves

Adjust Comment Print

Lebron James was again the saviour as he led the Los Angeles Lakers to a 114-110 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves in the National Basketball Association on Thursday, November 8.

Despite Bayless' comments, James has averaged more points this season (26.5 to 24.1), but is down on assists (7.8 to 8.9) and rebounds (7.9 to 8.3). They have struggled to contain teams, especially when they are outnumbered in terms of size on the court. And Chandler didn't disappoint, hauling in nine rebounds.

The relationship between Phoenix Suns interim general manager James Jones and LeBron James might be why Tyson Chandler is a Los Angeles Laker this early in the season. 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.

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. "I'd like to say it is going to be better the next game".

James also joked that Jones "needs an opt-out clause" in his contract so he can come work for LeBron's team if LeBron ever decides to go that route.

James led the Lakers with 24 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists to finish just a dish shy of his 75th triple-double while Kuzma drained 6 of his 21 points in the final minute to help the Lakers stay afloat. "We got him out at the end of practice and he went in for treatment", Walton said. "It's awesome. I haven't played with a closer like that since Dirk".

"The more pressure I can take off him, it will free him up to do all the special things he has been doing his entire career".

"The season is still young but we can't use that for too much longer, because these games come around quick", Butler said.
