LeBron, Lakers spoil Derrick Rose's 31-point effort

  • Tyson Chandler Josh Hart Ja Vale McGee

"There's so much pressure when you play with LeBron".

Kuzma hit one of two free throws with 9.5 seconds left after two huge offensive rebounds by Tyson Chandler, who had nine boards in an auspicious Lakers debut.

Tyson Chandler grew up in southern California but it was not until his 18th National Basketball Association season that he finally returned to Los Angeles.

James, coach Walton and Brandon Ingram were all full of praise for Chandler after the game and believe the veteran can make an impact going into the rest of the campaign.

"The best thing about it when you add a veteran like that who's experienced a lot, they pick up on things fast", James said. "When you're homegrown from here, go to high school and all of that, and you have these same fans that have been watching [your career] and now you represent the jersey that everyone has been cheering for their entire lives, you kind of become one".

Chandler finished with nine rebounds in 23 minutes in the Lakers' 114-110 win.


"I've been on the other side and played the villain, " he added. Rose also missed a three-pointer at the end fourth which would have given the Timberwolves the lead.

"The big man - who said he picked L.A. among about five teams - joins the Lakers after having his contract bought out by Phoenix". "I think everything happens for a reason".

Three days after the Lakers fell behind by 31 points in the first quarter during a loss to the Toronto Raptors, they trailed by as many as nine points in the opening quarter against the Wolves. Chandler backed up JaVale McGee, who had 16 points on 8-of-10 shooting.

In typical Skip Bayless fashion, the TV personality says the Rockets' woes might help LeBron James and the Lakers sneak into the playoffs this season in the rugged Western Conference.

Minnesota was outrebounded 47-40, and it was most glaring in that final minute.
