LONDON (AP) — Michael Beasley scored 21 points in his Timberwolves debut and Minnesota beat the Los Angeles Lakers 111-92 Monday in their preseason opener in London.

Kobe Bryant put in a brief appearance for defending champion Los Angeles as he continues recovery from offseason knee surgery.

Bryant started but went scoreless in little more than 6 minutes, missing all three shots.

It wasn’t enough to satisfy the crowd at the sold-out O2 Arena, which chanted “Kobe, Kobe, Kobe” during the second half.
