Kuz 97%ile on ISO's but Luke probably would have called a timeout next possession just to pull him out if he did anything close to this in a game.

Here are the Net Ratings of Kuzma's 2-Man Lineups

Kuzma + Blue..........+18.7 (18 minutes)
Kuzma + Ennis.........+18.0 (43 minutes)
Kuzma + Hart............+2.1 (197 minutes)
Kuzma + Randle..........-1.1 (334 minutes)
Kuzma + KCP..............-1.8 (402 minutes)
Kuzma + Lopez...........-2.6 (280 minutes)
Kuzma + Brewer..........-3.2 (175 minutes)
Kuzma + Ball..............-5.4 (420 minutes)
Kuzma + Clarkson.......-5.6 (333 minutes)
Kuzma + Ingram.........-7.6 (420 minutes)
Kuzma + Zubac.........-18.1 (9 minutes)
Kuzma + Bogut.........-18.7 (35 minutes)
Kuzma + Caruso.......-25.4 (19 minutes)
Kuzma + Nance........-40.5 (31 minutes)


Kind of different than some of the arguments here. It does support the idea that Randle and Kuzma pair well.

My 2k18 always starts with that line up. Why can't Luke? Well actually, I turn off fatigue and run them the whole game. 😂

Thankfully he hasn't had a lot of bad shooting games.
Cuz he doesn't have the defense to still make an impact in the game with.
Too psyched to play Ben?

Thanks to Puke taking a page out of overrated Phil's coaching when it comes to rookies -- killing their confidence and development especially when they're showing real promise.

Kuzma should be starting and Nance should be coming off the bench.

Puke taking him out of the starting lineup has really dinged his confidence. He needs to be starting. He was ROOKIE-OF-THE-MONTH as a starter.

Maybe it's like how Brook sucked against Robin and the Bulls... must be tough to play against your twin

Kuz seems to always bounce back. Doesn’t gave a lot of bad games, probably less than a handful this season.

Wouldn’t be surprised if he had something like 26 and 7 on Saturday.

I don't like a lot of things Luke does, but his treatment of Kuz isn't one of them. First of all, dude is playing over 30 MPG as a rookie and the #27 overall pick - there's just not much of an argument here for Luke shorting him minutes given the level of talent in our forward rotation. Kuz is getting his share and more. And second, as talented as he is, it's easy to get excited by all the wow plays and want to see more and more, but I totally don't mind Luke putting him in his place from time to time and teaching him the importance of doing the little things. This is about the long term, and it should be in all of our best interests to have him develop into the best, most well-rounded player he can possibly be for the future, over playing a few extra minutes in a meaningless December game during his rookie year.

I want him to improve his defense. Not that its horrible but he needs to make it impossible for Luke to leave him on the bench.

No one plays great all the time. He couldn't get in sync tonight.
No doubt that he will regroup and come out blazing again.

Definitely. Even the best players have bad nights.

Poor game tonight, but that's bound to happen to anyone, especially a rookie. Just never seemed to get anything positive going.

One thing I've noticed from Kuz, and I'm not surprised the stats bear this out, is that he's a much better shooter when open than when contested. The one 3 he made today was wide open. I think he has potential to drain contested 3s down the line though, and 45% on wide open 3s is exciting enough from a rookie.

His shot selection should improve by President's day.

His shot selection is solid Epak! Nothing close to KCP and Lopez

KCP gets away with so much bull on offense...
