Tyson Chandler officially signed with the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday after clearing waivers. More

If his performance in Wednesday's game was any indication, Chandler could serve to be an impactful asset off the bench that could help the Lakers turn it around from their early-season struggles. "It's unbelievable. I haven't played with a closer like that since Dirk".

Powered by their veteran backcourt, the Wolves got 31 points from Derrick Rose and 24 from Jimmy Butler.

Chandler, 36, had nine rebounds and made clutch defensive plays in 23 minutes of action, helping the Lakers hold off Minnesota 114-110.

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

Lakers: James fell just shy of his 75th triple-double, but scored nine points in the fourth quarter. Thibodeau used the same starting lineup from Monday's loss to the Clippers.

The Los Angeles Lakers are coming off an impressive 114-110 win at home over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night. Hart hit four 3-pointers in the first half, and Kuzma hit a buzzer-beating 3 to limit Minnesota's lead to 67-65.

Lakers: Chandler grew up in several parts of California before moving to Compton, where he starred at Dominguez High School and became the No. 2 pick in the 2001 National Basketball Association draft. Minnesota had a 32-30 lead after the first 12 minutes.

"The season is still young but we can't use that for too much longer, because these games come around quick", Butler said.

Andrew Wiggins had 19 points for the Wolves, while Taj Gibson had 16 points and 11 rebounds. That's been the story for us thus far, we have been right there, we've been out rebounded. We've been right there.

"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".

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