A good win indeed with Rose scored 31 and all 5 Timberwolves‘ starters scored double digits.

First unit looked better and second was more stable with Chandler

LeBron play completely within the system and no need to carry the offence or take over the game now.

Ingram was much more active and involved now. He got blocked and turned the ball over a few times but who care. It’s learning curve

Kuzma play better than my expectations. He showcased very good scoring skill although only had 3 boards and 1 assist. He is a impact player

Ball became a defensive specialist. I like the idea to use him to put full court pressure on opposite PG

Hart provided bench fire power. It might not his strength. But he did it really well. He is a player will to take up any role assigned to him and continues to grow.

McGee and Rando was good as usual. KCP is picking up.

Such a close victory. Can we credit Tyson Chandler for this win? Maybe his help was enough to put us over the hump of these close contests. Of all the close games that we've lost this year, maybe we could have won a couple of them if he was with us, which is a lot.

I am greatly disappointed in this team's defense. On paper, you have a lot of solid defenders and it just hasn't materialized yet this season, allowing 110+ every game is laughable. It's come to the point where I am more shocked when the opposition misses a shot than makes one.

I hope the addition of Tyson helps solidify that aspect of the game. He will definitely hold people accountable, he will even call out LBJ for blowing an assignment, etc.

Glad he was there at the end or else I don't realistically think the Lakers win tonight.


Hey man, we were giving up over 120 a night. Only gave up 110 last night. Progress.

Did Derrick Rose really yell "Weak Ass Ni****" at the Lakers? Or "We got this"?

He said we got this. Who ever came up with the bold is a (Y) trying to make trouble. Rose has never given any indication he'd do something like that.

He said we got this!. Who ever came up with the bold green IMO is a (Y) trying to make trouble. Rose has never given any indication he'd do something like that.

Game ball to Tyson Chandler!

Excellent first game as a Laker.
After a few days rest he should be ready to log another 10-20 minutes against the Sacto Kings.


Tyson Chandler's rebounding presence proves to be difference in Lakers' victory over Timberwolves: LA Times

A little depressing to see the Kings easily handle the Wolves today, even if Wiggins was out, when we struggled so desperately to beat them. Lakers need to win tomorrow; no excuses against a Kings team in a back to back.
