Can Tyson Chandler Save the Lakers?

Can Tyson Chandler Save the Lakers?

No, the Lakers haven't chose to fire Luke Walton or anything like that, but the team did add veteran center Tyson Chandler in recent days.

Chandler finished with nine rebounds in 23 minutes in the Lakers' 114-110 win.

Lakers head coach Luke Walton was also full of praise for Chandler, claiming their new centre has joined at the ideal time.

"I told him he needs an opt-out clause wherever he's at", James said with a smile.

Jimmy Butler added 24 for the Timberwolves, who dropped to 4-8 and remained winless on the road this season.

Chandler is in his 18th season after entering the National Basketball Association draft out of high school in 2001. I've been on the other side and played the villain.

Parents should not bring students to these schools, according to Miranda Ferguson, Pender County schools spokesperson. James Rowell said deputies responded to reports of shots being fired at the school around 6:30 Friday morning.


Leonard, who missed the last two games with a sore ankle, added 11 rebounds for the Raptors, who have won five straight since losing to Milwaukee on Oct 29. He is the latest addition to a core of veteran Lakers newcomers around James including Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, McGee and Michael Beasley, who returned to practice Tuesday after spending a week away due to an undisclosed personal matter. All five Wolves starters reached double figures in the first half while hitting 66 percent of their shots.

If they can stretch their winning run, they will be in the positive in terms of their win-loss record for the first time this season.

A California native, Chandler attended Dominguez High School in Compton before going pro.

In typical Skip Bayless fashion, the TV personality says the Rockets' woes might help LeBron James and the Lakers sneak into the playoffs this season in the rugged Western Conference.

Andrew Wiggins had 19 points for the Wolves, while Taj Gibson had 16 points and 11 rebounds. We played good, four games. Minnesota had a 32-30 lead after the first 12 minutes.

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