Kyle Kuzma Leads Lakers To 123-115 Win Over The Sun

The Lakers finally have what they were missing this season, Kyle Kuzma after having a wonderful year last season landing a spot on the NBA All-Rookie First Team. Anyone who watched the Lakers last year knows the quality that Kuzma brings to the court. With the addition of LeBron James and Anthony Davis, the discussion that evolved was whether the three big players could come together and produce magic. After last night’s performance, the Lakers are now leading the pack with the best record in the West and the second-best in the league behind the Celtics. With an 8-2 record, the Lakers are looking like a championship-caliber team. Kuzma in his first game back from injury had 22 points only one point behind Davis who had 23 points. LeBron who now is considered one of the best players of all time only had 19 points but also had 11 assists which seems to be his new role. A leader who not only scores but also passes and creates chances for his younger teammates.

Against the Suns, Los Angeles shot 53.7% and had 39 assists their best in an away game since 1988. These first 10 games are the Lakers’ best start since 10/11 season making some fans believe that the old Lakers dominance might be back. It wasn’t their best defensive performance however, letting the Suns score greater than 50% and allowing Aron Baynes, Devin Booker and Ricky Rubio putting up a minimum of 20 points each. The Lakers who scored and assisted with firepower seemed to struggle stopping the 3-pointers coming from the Suns. 

It wasn’t just Kuzma who came back from injury against the Suns, Rajon Rondo also returned to action and participated in the team effort. Rondo said that coach preached for the players to move the ball around and that’s what the lakers did racking up those 39 assists. 

After recovering from a stress reaction in his left ankle, the Lakers now have Kuzma at their disposal who by many is considered the third-best player on the team behind Davis and LeBron. The Lakers are a team of stars and always have been. Now it’s time to see if those stars can shine together and produce that magic that the Lakers have always been associated with.
