Tyson Chandler Was Overwhelmed After Lakers Debut

The veteran center signed with Los angeles this week after clearing waivers on a contract buyout with the Suns.

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.

The Los Angeles Lakers were -22 over their past five games in the rebounding battle prior to Thursday's game against the Wolves. "I think he'll be a nice kind of velvety touch for that team".

James, who led the Lakers in scoring, nearly ended up with a triple double, with the small forward dropping 24 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.

The Lakers' defense is 18.3 points per 100 possessions worse when McGee is off the floor, meaning Chandler's role, as well as his skillset, could prove to be a good fit with Los Angeles. "It's fantastic. I haven't played with a closer like that since Dirk". The roster appears nowhere near ready to compete for a championship and the Lakers might even struggle to make the playoffs, considering James is surrounded by a lot of young players and guys who don't really fit well next to him.

Minnesota came out in an offensive groove during its second straight game at Staples Center following Monday's loss to the Clippers. Elsewhere, Joel Embiid scored 20 points and had 10 rebounds as the Philadelphia 76ers won their first road game of the season with a 100-94 victory over the Indiana Pacers. "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. It's getting better. We've seen it getting better over the last four or five games but it's got a long way to go". Minnesota had a 32-30 lead after the first 12 minutes.

One thing that isn't open for debate - the Lakers needed Chandler on Wednesday night.
