Chandler finished with nine rebounds in 23 minutes in the Lakers' 114-110 win.
Tyson Chandler made his Lakers debut Wednesday night, and some in the National Basketball Association reportedly believe that Phoenix Suns interim general manager James Jones allowed the veteran center to head to Los Angeles (via buyout) early in the season as something of a favor to longtime former teammate LeBron James.
"He gave us great minutes", Lakers star forward LeBron James said.
Timberwolves point guard Derrick Rose put in yet another outstanding performance with 31 points that included 7-for-9 from beyond the arc.
"The big man - who said he picked L.A. among about five teams - joins the Lakers after having his contract bought out by Phoenix".
"We needed the help now", Walton said (via ESPN).

Asked what it is like to play alongside James, he said: "I can't describe it, it's unbelievable".
Typically, veterans on struggling teams like Chandler get waived around mid-season, when we have a good idea of what teams are playoff bound and what their needs are. "It's incredible. I haven't played with a closer like that since Dirk".
James, coach Walton and Brandon Ingram were all full of praise for Chandler after the game and believe the veteran can make an impact going into the rest of the campaign. James knows how to help facilitate and construct a roster worthy of making deep playoff runs, as evidenced by the past eight seasons.
