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.

LeBron James had 24 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists, and Kyle Kuzma scored six of his 21 points in the final minutes of the Lakers' 114-110 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Minnesota loss spoiled a superb performance from Derrick Rose who finished with 31 points. But his team found the stops necessary down the stretch and managed to pull off a fighting win.

The 36-year-old centre played 23 minutes on his debut on Wednesday, a day after the Lakers signed him, but looked completely at home in a 114-110 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Lakers haven't had many resources to back up JaVale McGee at center, and Chandler will provide just that piece.

Chandler's nine rebounds included two enormous offensive boards in the last minute.

Kuzma's fourth 3-pointer put the Lakers up 111-104 with 1:51 to play, but Rose promptly hit back-to-back 3-pointers for the Wolves. "And get a dub".

Arsenal boss Unai Emery believes Danny Welbeck's injury affected his players
The Arsenal forward was challenging Sporting full-back Bruno Gaspar for a header when their legs tangled and Welbeck landed awkwardly on his ankle.

James also joked that Jones "needs an opt-out clause" in his contract so he can come work for LeBron's team if LeBron ever decides to go that route. "But it was great to be out there, and play a part on the team I've watched my entire life". To have him close out games, I know how special he is on both ends.

"Having observed our roster for the first 10 games of this young season, one of the areas that Earvin and I discussed with Luke that we desired to upgrade is interior defense and rebounding", Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka said.

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

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