This isn't like when Minnesota traded Kevin Garnett to Boston for five players and two draft picks in a deal between friends and former Celtics teammates Kevin McHale and Danny Ainge. The Lakers kept the pace up against their tired rivals from Sacramento, getting quality minutes from Chandler, Stephenson, Rajon Rondo, Josh Hart, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope off the bench.

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).

The Lakers, who began the season with three straight losses, moved to.500 (6-6) for the first time this season by holding the Kings, who entered the game averaging 118 points per contest, to their lowest scoring total of the season.
