When Kyle Kuzma got things started, Talen Horton-Tucker closed the game for the Los Angeles Lakers!
Start taking the kids upstairs to bed because Talen Horton-Tucker has a grown man game. After a slow start, he teamed up with Kyle Kuzma to help the Lakers steamroll the Suns 43-24 to close the game out.
When the street lights came on, he made winning plays scoring the ball and setting up his teammates. He finished the game with 18 points (7-11 shooting, hit all 4 FTs!), grabbed 5 rebounds and filled out the box score with 2 assists, a steal and a block. His plus/minus was an astonishing +12. Why? It probably was obtained in the final quarter.
If anyone has a theory about how THT pulls this move off seemingly every game he plays these days, feel free to put it in the comment section below.
This game here should mean more to the Lakers than the 33 point, 10 rebound explosion in the previous game. It would have been easy for THT to take a step back and rest on the laurels of two solid preseason games after starting slow, especially with the stars coming back.
This performance in the last quarter shows this guy will compete every second he’s on the floor. He is taking the blueprint of Alex Caruso and is writing his own success story. What’s scary for the NBA? He’s 6’4 230 pounds with a 7’1 wingspan.
THT is the guy that has to bring his birth certificate to games.
