The Lakers' newest big man got to represent his hometown Wednesday night for the first time in his 18 National Basketball Association seasons, and he came up bigger and better than even he expected in a hard-fought win.

Rose then missed his last 3 under heavy defensive pressure from Chandler, and Hart hit two free throws to seal it. Minnesota coach Tom Thibodeau thought Rose deserved a foul. Jimmy Butler adds 24 points in the loss.

The jersey and shorts feature pinstripes that read, "3x5xSHOWTIME" to represent the five championships Johnson won with the Lakers, his three MVP Awards and of course name of the uptempo offense he orchestrated.

James led the Lakers with 24 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists to finish just a dish shy of his 75th triple-double while Kuzma drained 6 of his 21 points in the final minute to help the Lakers stay afloat.

Tyson Chandler cleared waivers this week after being granted a buyout from the Phoenix Suns, and he immediately signed a veteran minimum contract with the Lakers.

The Lakers ended the clash with a +7 rebounding advantage, the first time they've done so since their third game of the season.
