Kobe Bryant scored 33 points, the Spanish Pau Gasol added 18 points and 10 rebounds as the Lakers managed a 8-0 start to the season for the third time in franchise history after a victory on Tuesday 99 - 94 against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Yet the two-time champions never shook off the Timberwolves, who were placed at two points only local team in the final minutes.

Minnesota moved closer to its sixth straight loss and Ron Artest was grateful for the benefit of the Lakers.

"We won, but did not play well, and that worries me a bit," Artest said. "If we lose and play well, is another story. I imagine one feels better to win, even if it's something. We are still a good team, even on a night like this. "

Kevin Love scored 23 points and 24 rebounds recovered, resulting in a very frustrating night for Artest, who had difficulty keeping the star of the Timberwolves two points below to score another record in his career. Minnesota suffered its twelfth consecutive failures against the Lakers, but shone in his effort and cohesion.

"I think it was the best game we've played so far, despite the defeat at the end of the night," said Love. "We set out to play against the world champions, and we face a tough fight. We played much better than we played in the last four or five games. "

Lamar Odom could occur despite getting into foul trouble and scored two important basketed to contribute 15 points for the Lakers, who now share the 1987-88 team with the second best season start in club history. Only the Lakers in the 1997-98 season was better, which started 11-0.

To be Chris Paul on the bench, Bayless and Green were combined into the final period to score the first 19 points of his team in the period to give advantage to the Hornets 89-69.

Paul added 13 points and eight assists for New Orleans, which has the best record in its history with a 7-0 season start. Emeka Okafor and Trevor Ariza scored 12 points apiece for the Hornets, whose rookie coach Monty Williams still does not know defeat.

Al-Farouk Aminu scored 20 points for the Clippers, who played much of the game without center Chris Kaman, who suffered a sprained left ankle.

"One can not expect to win at home or outside the house when you suffer so many turnovers, so we have to improve greatly when evaluating ownership," said Clippers coach, Vinny Del Black. "We fight ... but we could not keep enough pressure on them offensively."

In Miami, Paul Millsap scored 46 points, the most in his life, including two to force overtime with a layup just before the buzzer sounded, and the Utah Jazz defeated in a surprise move the Miami Heat, 116 - 114.
