Suns GM 'Did LeBron a Solid' With Tyson Chandler Buyout

Suns GM 'Did LeBron a Solid' With Tyson Chandler Buyout

Chandler had eight rebounds in 23 minutes, as well as a few big defensive moments in his Lakers' debut, a 114-110 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Lakers (4-6) lost to the Timberwolves 124-120 in Minnesota on October 29 after Jimmy Butler made five 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and scored 32 points. The ship had long since sailed on the idea that Chandler would be a part of any sort of championship pursuit in Phoenix, but at least he could serve as a role model and mentor to No. 1 overall pick Deandre Ayton.

Lakers have registered two wins since that meeting last Friday against the Portland Trail Blazers and the Minnesota Timberwolves, but it seems Walton still does not know his best line-up.

Anthony Davis had 32 points and 15 rebounds as the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Chicago Bulls 107-98. He averaged 6.5 points and 9.1 rebounds in 46 starts for the Suns during the 2017-18 campaign. The youngest MVP ever in the history of the National Basketball Association finished the night with 31 points and a hit career-high seven triples.

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

A California native, Chandler attended Dominguez High School in Compton before going pro. Chandler backed up JaVale McGee, who had 16 points on 8-of-10 shooting. Rose and Wiggins hit three 3-pointers apiece and all five starters contributed to an 11-for-17 performance beyond the arc, tying the franchise record for 3s in a first half.

An action-packed final minute saw the Lakers recover the ball three times on the offensive end after missing shots, before withstanding a potential game-winning effort from Derrick Rose, which was off-target. That's been the story for us thus far, we have been right there, we've been out rebounded.
