Los Angeles Lakers Report Card: Game 11 vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

10 November, 2018, 08:51 | Author: Drew Briggs
  • Tyson Chandler Josh Hart Ja Vale McGee

He finished with two points and six rebounds in 27 minutes.

The Lakers added star LeBron James as well as Rajon Rondo, among others, this summer.

Top performers for the Timberwolves were former MVP Derrick Rose with 31 points, Jimmy Butler added 24 points.

The veteran center signed with Los angeles this week after clearing waivers on a contract buyout with the Suns.

Despite Bayless' comments, James has averaged more points this season (26.5 to 24.1), but is down on assists (7.8 to 8.9) and rebounds (7.9 to 8.3). He said he was unsure of Ball's status for the team's game against the Kings.

Kourtney also shared a message on social media, writing, "I pray that everyone is kept safe and protected from these fires". The gossip website also said Caitlin Jenner's home that sat on a ridge overlooking Malibu beach had been destroyed.

The Lakers still have plenty of issues, mainly on the defensive end, but this result put their record at 5-6 and there is cause for optimism after a shaky stretch that put head coach Luke Walton's job under the microscope.

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.

The veteran big man grabbed nine rebounds in 23 minutes and helped LA retain possession and hold a one-point lead when he tipped the ball out to his teammates after a missed shot with seconds remaining. "And get a dub".

With Chandler's calm maturity and stalwart presence on defense off the bench-not to mention the fact that he'll likely back up James and change the dynamic at practice as a fellow veteran-his addition to the team certainly won't hurt in terms of veteran-rookie (or close to it) relations.

Asked what it is like to play alongside James, he said: "I can't describe it, it's wonderful". "It's awesome. I haven't played with a closer like that since Dirk. I just want to take pressure off him". James knows how to help facilitate and construct a roster worthy of making deep playoff runs, as evidenced by the past eight seasons.
