Nice game by Kuz. 39 minutes, 22 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists. Good job on D!

Nice line. He did a really nice job in the 3rd when Bron went out of getting some buckets when we (minus Bron) were struggling to score

It’s starting to click for Kuzma. That pass from Lebron right back to a cutting Lebron with less than 1:30 left was beautiful to see. Early this season he probably chucks up low pct shot.

Kuz is playing great.

Yeah, we might be seeing the rise of Kuzma this year, like we did last year. 22/9/5 stat lines and improving defense are saying with actions that "I want to be Robin." First Laker to step up.

Luke mentioned that Kuzma wanted to guard him and got the assignment (DR). He did as good of a job as anyone on the Lakers.

I really am liking the improved defense and playmaking. He’s getting better.

Kuz's defense on DD was probably better than anyone last night except BI in his limited minutes. Lebron also did well on DD in his 2-3 possessions against him. Kuz stayed down on his pumps and stopped him during crunch time in the 4th.

like ingram and ball he does a lot of dumb stuff but he has his great moments too.

he was clanking three after three and even forced one up and got blocked but he made two great passes.

Defense on Derozan was good as well

He definitely has the ability just the 3 ponit brickery that's concerning.
He ia taking the 2nd most shots on offense already though.

The above the break threes are what harm Kuz' percentages. He's a 38% career shooter from the corners, and ~33-34% from elsewhere. Unfortunately, an extremely low 17% of his threes come from the corners.

Hopefully the staff will tailor the offense a little more around Kuzma's ability from the corner. If he's not taking 3's, he's getting defenders to bite on fakes, then driving and usually dishing to McGee for dunks. Kuz is at his deadliest that way.

Big ups to Kuzma.
Big ups to the coaching staff.
Big ups to GT.

But no content on his one handed rebound taps? I need to know

Kuzma is starting to show more consistent flashes of being that 2nd star. Man, if he can make that leap the Lakers would be in an amazing spot.

Kuz should def be our #2 option this year. He’s ready and wants that responsibility, BI is simply not ready yet.

Kuz is the #2 option on the team. He's averaging 17 ppg. He and Lebron have developed a good chemistry.
