Lakers acquiring Tyson Chandler may have been part of LeBron’s ‘master plan’

The Lakers have been getting some great play this season from center JaVale McGee, who has been averaging 14.5 points and 7.2 rebounds per game.

Unfortunately the Timberwolves didn't pull off the road win in Los Angeles, but Rose's improved play is certainly something for fans to be hyped about, no matter what team they root for. In the third quarter of their matchup, Lonzo Ball pushed the ball up the court for a quick attack when he saw a sprinting LeBron James.

Next up is the Atlanta Hawks at home on Sunday night.

Sacramento's balance helped overcome a 39-point, 19-rebound explosion by Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns. He came off the bench to score two points on 1-of-4 shooting over 23 minutes of action.

"He has size, he can jump over somebody, shoot the ball (and) he's physical", Kings coach Dave Joerger said this week.

Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times reported that Kuzma reached out to James before he was officially a Laker and also says that Kuzma was the first Laker to contact him after James made the decision to join them.

When presented with the claim, LeBron said it was really Chandler who benefited the most.

However, a spell of turnovers from Lance Stephenson and Tyson Chandler allowed the Kings to get a pair of easy dunks part of the way through the second, which changed the momentum of the game and allowed them to go on a run to end the half that cut Los Angeles' lead to just six.

Lebron James flirted with another triple-double and Kyle Kuzma came through the final stretch as the Los Angeles Lakers outlasted the Minnesota Timberwolves, 114-110, in National Basketball Association action at the Staples Center on Wednesday night, November 7 (Thursday, November 8, Manila time).

Chandler was bought out by the Phoenix Suns, but some think it was more of a favor to James than it was a move in the best interest for Phoenix.

The injury, which isn't considered serious, occurred when Ball stepped on a teammate's foot during Friday's team workout.
