Kyle Kuzma had a career night, but allowed Lake Show Life to finally understand where he needs to grow!

Kyle Kuzma took a different approach in the Oklahoma City Thunder game. He punished them all game long. He reminded everyone what’s his best skill set. Getting buckets and getting them in bunches.

Kuzma strolled into OKC and came out again on fire scoring 23 points in the first half. The difference between this game was he contributed in the second half. When the Thunder made runs, Kuzma made shots to stem the tide, scoring a season-high 36 points in 40 minutes.

For the people scoring at home, in back to back games, Kuzma scored 62 points with an amazing stat of zero turnovers. Now, this is the best-case scenario of Kuzma’s game. Let’s flip the script and show what’s the worst?

What will be the contribution as the third option? This performance was done without LeBron and AD. The Lakers need to know what they are getting with the superstars in the lineup. Playmaking is at the top of the list. In the two games, Kuzma had only two assists.

Kyle Kuzma made a strong statement that Lakers fans will remember to Allie Clifton of Spectrum SportsNet after the Dallas victory. Something about minutes coinciding with his great play for these two games.

Well, Kyle Kuzma got more minutes against Cleveland. What ground he made in the previous games, got sliced on Monday night.
