The Los Angeles Lakers didn’t play much defense Tuesday night when they finished their first game in the second half of their schedule, but against the worst team in the NBA that didn’t matter when LeBron James mastered a Lakers attack who headed apart an unfortunate defense for the Minnesota Timberwolves in a 137-121 victory

James finished his second triple-double in a row and the 99th of his career with 25 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists, he was also one of the few Lakers to actually make some defense games in that game, including a highlight block from Jake Layman

At some point we have to talk about the fact that LeBron is not just for an 18th-century player Year plays a good defense. He plays one of the best defenses of any NBA player

– He leads the NBA in defensive profit shares – He plays in the best defensive team in the NBA – Has Gobert-Lakers had the third best defense in AD’s absence

The rest of the story was mostly the same recipe as lately this Montrezl Harrell and Kyle Kuzma gave the Lakers the necessary hit with the reserve units again and scored 41 points ahead of the pine Dennis Schröder (16 points, 7 assists) was the second playmaker the Lakers needed as Anthony Davis continued on sideline, and Talen Horton-Tucker (16 points) gave the Crimson and Gold yet another broker a series of nifty pick-and-roll with his second game in the second unit -Play, in addition to his signature on the edge

Even Wesley Matthews (6 points, 2-5 shots out of three) hit his first two threes! It was a good night in LA

All of this resulted in the Lakers’ third straight win and they are still undefeated (3-0) since returning from their much-needed All-Star hiatus, the team is now between 27 and 13 years old and has Wednesday off before it hosts LaMelo Ball and the Charlotte Hornets on Thursday
