Suns exec James Jones did friend LeBron 'a solid' with Chandler buyout

Spurs at Phoenix Suns

The good news is the Lakers can play Minnesota close. From Brandon, to LeBron (James), to Lance (Stephenson), even Svi (Mykhailiuk), I mean Svi played point guard for his (Ukrainian) national team.

James led the Lakers with 24 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.

If last game was any indication, the Lakers are struggling defensively.

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

An action-packed final minute saw the Lakers recover the ball three times on the offensive end after missing shots, before withstanding a potential game-winning effort from Derrick Rose, which was off-target. But his team found the stops necessary down the stretch and managed to pull off a fighting win.

Tyson Chandler cleared waivers this week after being granted a buyout from the Phoenix Suns, and he immediately signed a veteran minimum contract with the Lakers. The Lakers haven't had many resources to back up JaVale McGee at center, and Chandler will provide just that piece.

The Wolves had one last possession, but Rose missed a wide open 3-pointer with four seconds to go. He also revealed the joy of playing with James and believes he is one of the best closers the game has ever seen while referring to his time with Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki.

"We felt previous year when (Lonzo) got hurt, we were searching for that guy", Walton said. "And get a dub". "But I think he's getting some great experience right now as far as the half court execution stuff we're talking about".

"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".

Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton said Lonzo Ball was unable to finish Friday's practice due to turning his ankle when landing on another player's foot during a scrimmage period.

That leaves L.A.'s starting point guard a question mark to play in Saturday night's game at Sacramento.
