Tyson Chandler

Wow, what a game between the Lakers and the Timberwolves. Lakers won with the presence of Tyson Chandler. He had 9 rebounds off the bench making key defensive plays all game so much so that Towns couldn't do squat against him. His late tip rebound and alterring D-Rose shot gave the Lakers the win. Derrick Rose was phenomenal with 31 pts and 7/8 for 3 but couldn't tie the game at the end. The Wolves executed the same play from 2015 but different result.

In other news, Whiteside was a monster with 29pts, 20 rebs and 9 blks in a win over the Spurs to the score of 95-88. This was the same score of Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals between these two. That is all.

Tyson can still be a rock

Tyson can still be a rock solid defensive guy and someone to use down the stretch or to protect a lead.

Also great to see D-Rose having another top game, the 50 point game could have been a one off but if he is now finally getting a good 3 point range it could totally transform him back into near D-Rose MVP form.

PHX

I never understood the Tyson to Suns move. He wasted a lot of time buried in a bench behind players who weren't as productive as him.

He never played more than 66 games for the Suns in a year. Was he hurt?

Suns always sucked and wasn't

Suns always sucked and wasn't competiting for anything so they were giving the young forwards the minutes over TC. I'm sure they'll do the same to Ariza in a couple months.

They signed Tyson in hopes to lure Lamarcus Aldridge to the Suns. Of Course that didn't work.

Hahahaha!! Some observers are Claiming that Lebron's former teammate and friend James Jones who now works in Phoenix front office did him a favor by giving Chandler a buyout now instead of the usual time frame of February or March. The Kings stated that's when they'll give 1 to Zach Randolph!! Lebron said the side deal wasn't true. "Becuz the move helps Tyson".

Tyson was sat out a fair few games by the Suns over the last few years as they were looking to maximize their lottery chances and give playing time to Bender, Chriss and Len once the season was effectively written off.
