Kuz’s game so much like cedrick ceballos, scoring off of cuts, offensive boards and broken plays.

Kuzma has been very good the past couple nights. I loved his run down on the Rockets turnover even if the Rockets defense recovered. It was nice hustle.

He was cutting to the rim and diving this game which he needs to do more often. He did a great job of that in his first two years when either Lonzo, Rondo, and LeBron found him often. He needs to do that more!


I agree I don't know why he stopped doing that this year. He's a very good off the ball cutter.


Nice to see Kuz taking our advice lol

Mike Breen and SVG complimenting Kuzma’s defense really says a lot about his improvement.

Kuzma has been a dog with the hustle plays, and he's shown great bball IQ with his cuts to the basket (instead of ball-watching LeBron and AD). Hats off to Kuzma tonight! He had some clutch plays.

If Kuz was a dog, he’d be a poodle. But yes, he’s putting in work.

Kyle Kuzma going from being viewed as a 6'9'' Jordan Clarkson that couldn't play a lick of defense his first 2 seasons into a gritty and hard nosed defensive player that can go off on offense on any night is not something anybody would have expected. Thank goodness for Vogel and this coaching staff compared to Kuzma being coached by Luke and his frat buddies his first 2 seasons. Kuzma is now turning into a legit 2-way difference maker and a winning NBA player.

Those cuts he was making were silently wrecking havoc on Houston's defense which gave them something else to worry about.

He's also playing extremely smart, rarely ever taking bad shots and outside of game 1 has been elite on defense like he has the majority of the time in the bubble. We still have a lot of Playoffs left but if he keeps up his current play he becomes borderline untradeable imo considering the possible realistic players we could get back. He's a perfect role player for a Championship team and still has a little room to grow.

One thing Kuz has improved on too is less turnovers from travels. He used to travel like nothing else the last two years, especially on his drives to the hoop.

Yup, when Team USA had that disappointing World Cup in 2019, they cited Kuzma not being able to play due to injuries as one of the reasons why they struggled due to the versatile role Kuzma was supposed to play for the team. I remember Donovan Mitchell last summer in an interview talked about how much better Kuzma was on defense and described him as turning into a good defender during the Team USA scrimmages as well.

If he can continue to find gaps and play well off ball, he can make us unpredictable . A lot of teams are not prepared for that. Rockets just want to pack the paint and daring us to shoot.
