Lakers beat Timberwolves in Los Angeles 114-110

Lakers beat Timberwolves in Los Angeles 114-110”

LOS ANGELES-LeBron James scored 24 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds as the Los Angeles Lakers held on to beat the struggling Minnesota Timberwolves 114-110 at Staples Center. It seems lately that the young team is combusting under the pressure associated with playing alongside the greatest player in the world-a player who expects success just as much as others expect it of him.

The Lakers spoiled the game-high 31-point effort of Derrick Rose, who knocked in back-to-back threes that put the Timberwolves within a point, 110-111, with just 66 seconds left. He is the latest addition to a core of veteran Lakers newcomers around James including Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, McGee and Michael Beasley, who returned to practice Tuesday after spending a week away due to an undisclosed personal matter.

He had nine rebounds in a winning debut Wednesday against the Timberwolves, and Chandler, 36, believes he can play a big role in ensuring the Lakers get the best out of superstar James.

"I think it helps stabilize us", Walton said.

Jimmy Butler added 24 for the Timberwolves, who dropped to 4-8 and remained winless on the road this season. Coach Tom 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.

"For us to be able to get him and have that one-two punch with JaVale [McGee] and Tyson, it creates extra opportunities for us". "Very, very frustrating to know we were that close, and all we have to do is rebound the basketball", Butler said. "That's a far, far away goal right now", he admitted. Take the first quarter out, I'm assuming our Minnesota game was a good defensive game.

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