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.

Chandler will provide needed frontcourt depth for the Lakers, who have relied on JaVale McGee and undersized forwards to guard big men during their 4-6 start to the season.

How much can he help his Lakers as the season rolls on?

Chandler's nine rebounds included two enormous offensive boards in the last minute.

Top performers for the Timberwolves were former MVP Derrick Rose with 31 points, Jimmy Butler added 24 points. Chandler averaged just 0.1 block per game when he was on the Suns, compared to 1.2 blocks in his career.

As expected, the Los Angeles Lakers have signed veteran center Tyson Chandler, the team announced in a new release.

LeBron James had 24 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists, and Kyle Kuzma scored six of his 21 points in the final minutes of the Los Angeles Lakers' 114-110 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night.

Tyson Chandler, meanwhile, made his debut for the Lakers just days after signing as a free agent following his contract being bought out by the Phoenix Suns.

"I've been on the other side and played the villain, " he added. After Chandler twice extended the Lakers' ensuing possession, Kuzma hit one of two free throws with 9.5 seconds left.

Asked what it is like to play alongside James, he said: "I can't describe it, it's fantastic". The 20 made 3-pointers set a Minnesota franchise record. The invisible hand of LeBron was reportedly the key to L.A.'s crucial addition of center Tyson Chandler.

Lonzo Ball may not be on the floor for the Lakers on Saturday.

If the Lakers get the ship righted and make a run as we get into the meat of the season, fans can definitely thank Jones for at least a minor assist.

"We felt previous year when (Lonzo) got hurt, we were searching for that guy, we finally put Brandon at point guard and that kind of helped us get going again", said Walton.
