Chandler finished with nine rebounds in 23 minutes in the Lakers' 114-110 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.
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. Brandon Ingram scored 20 points for Los Angeles, which won for the third time in the past four games. Derrick Rose promptly hit back-to-back 3-pointers for the Wolves, trimming the lead to one with 1:06 left.
The 114-110 win brought their early season record to an nearly respectable 5-6 to stand 10th in the Western Conference, but it was not guaranteed until the final seconds of the game.
James added 10 rebounds and nine assists, just missing out on his second triple-double as a member of the Lakers. "It's wonderful. I haven't played with a closer like that since Dirk".

When he has played, Butler has played well, averaging 22 points on 49 percent shooting. He finished with two points and six rebounds in 27 minutes. Chandler grew up in several parts of California before moving to Compton, where he starred at Dominguez High School and became the No. 2 pick in the 2001 National Basketball Association draft.
Minnesota came out in an offensive groove during its second straight game at Staples Center following Monday's loss to the Clippers.
Minnesota was outrebounded 47-40, and it was most glaring in that final minute. On his ESPN radio show, Stephen A. Smith said Rondo's comments to the Lakers' public relations team about a "punk-ass reporter" were in reference to him.
"We love the fact that we're going to get another veteran", James told reporters. We've been right there. "He went in and got some treatment".
