The Los Angeles Lakers bench again proved they are the deepest in the NBA!
With the superstars not scoring as much as needed, the bench really helped the Los Angeles Lakers out. Without their 43 point contribution, the Lakers might have had bigger problems.
One thing is for sure, Montrezl Harrell is playing easily the best basketball of his career.
Montrezl Harrell plays hard every night. Seriously folks. As good as LeBron James and Anthony Davis has played all season, Harrell is right behind them in consistent production. The Lakers have run this same play for a week and teams still can’t stop it.
Montrezl Harrell hit his first seven shots of the game on his way to 17 points, 8 rebounds, 2 blocks and an assist. He plays hard on defense and plays with the aggressiveness that was missing with the stars in this game.
Kyle Kuzma will be an enigma for the rest of the season, but quietly he is getting quite comfortable in his role. He finished with 15 points (13 in the second half!), with 10 rebounds (2 offensive!), in 25 minutes. All of his 3 point shots were hit at important times especially in the third quarter when he scored 9 straight Lakers points.
He continues to make winning plays for the Lakers. In his 20 minutes, Caruso had a stat line of 7 points and 4 assists in 20 minutes.
The final lesson is what the Los Angeles Lakers is really missing in the Staples Center. They are undefeated on the road but are now 4-4 at home. Wanna know why?
