Luke Walton on Kyle Kuzma (26P, 13R, 2A): “I thought his competitive spirit was great. He (gave) everything he had to the game. Kept telling me ‘coach I’m ready to go’ after he hurt the ankle.”

Still 3 years on rookie deal? We won the trade

Great game by Kuzma tonight. He was huge when the Lakers were faltering in the second half. And nice effort in playing through the ankle sprain.

Russell would NEVER do that. This guy is the toughest youngin we have...BY FAR! Everyone else has a little tweak and they are out for 2 months

That is a man right there. That is, dare I say, MAMBA MENTALITY.

People will knock his defense and I would agree, but does this look like a kid that won’t progress on that end? A kid with that much skill and heart?

This is the kind of stuff why I’m so high on him.

He is going to be a special player.

Kyle Kuzma had x-rays on his right ankle postgame. He said they were clean, no breaks.

He will continue to have his ups and downs. I just have never understood the hate for a rookie given the flashes of brilliance he’s had all season long.

Mamba mentality

He's rebounding and defending like a fiend out there when his shot isn't dropping.

And let's recap Kuz's best games this season

The summer league finals
The Houston game
The Celtics game
The revenge game vs the Nuggets

He is a big game player, period

He had a couple of nice possessions defensively that stood out to me. I will say I like the Kyle Kuzma with the ultimate green light a little better.. BUT being told to reign it in and make the right play will probably benefit him in the long run.

Dude is a baller. I can't wait to see what the Lakers are going to do with this upcoming draft.

Clear Kuzma is feeling that ankle now. X-rays clean but he's favoring it visibly postgame in the locker room

"Competitive spirit" was a good way to describe Kuz's performance, but just not because of playing while hurt. He missed a lot of shots early but continued to rebound and stay aggressive until those shots started falling. It was impressive how he turned around his night.

Good news with the x-rays.

Of course he’s feeling it now though. The game just ended and the adrenaline is gone.

I give it a good night’s rest with an ice bath and sleep. Hopefully he can be ready to go.

Watching the Spectrum highlights, you can see Kuzma talking trash to the Nuggets bench and giving Murray a “nah” head shake.

3rd quarter @10:10 mark

4th quarter @5:05 mark

Give Kuzma some first class seats.

It will feel worse in the morning. I would expect Kuzma to be out the next few games. It sucks because our lineup is thin already w/out Ingram and Hart. It's gonna be tough to keep winning with the injuries and the desperate playoff caliber teams we will be playing soon.
