LeBron James' near triple-double leads Lakers vs. Timberwolves | NBA Highlights

No, the Lakers haven't made a decision to fire Luke Walton or anything like that, but the team did add veteran center Tyson Chandler in recent days.

James added 10 rebounds and nine assists, just missing out on his second triple-double as a member of the Lakers.

The Los Angeles Lakers got an immediate boost from their newest addition in their win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night, and many people believe LeBron James should be thanking one of his former teammates for that. "I think he'll be a nice kind of velvety touch for that team".

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

The Timberwolves, who entered 19th in the National Basketball Association in 3-pointers made at 10.3 per game, went 20-for-40 from beyond the arc. "It's incredible. I haven't played with a closer like that since Dirk".

"The big man - who said he picked L.A. among about five teams - joins the Lakers after having his contract bought out by Phoenix".

The newspaper found that the two judges accounted for more than a fifth of youths sent to juvenile prisons in Texas a year ago . Alex Bunin , the county's chief public defender, suggested to the Houston Chronicle that his actions were something of a sulk.

Kevin McHale on NBATV commented on the pressure the young Lakers are experiencing playing alongside LeBron for the first time, saying that Chandler may be able to bring the same veteran maturity but alleviate some of the pressure of playing on the same team as LeBron James.

Minnesota came out in an offensive groove during its second straight game at Staples Center following Monday's loss to the Clippers. But he had to settle for 24 points, 9 assists and 10 rebounds.

The Lakers ended the clash with a +7 rebounding advantage, the first time they've done so since their third game of the season.

"We needed the help now", Walton said (via ESPN). "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".

The Lakers next face the Sacramento Kings on Saturday and then take on the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday.
