Kyle Kuzma, most of the time, is a fun guy. The Los Angeles Lakers young forward is having a very good season after struggling to get things going in 2019/20. Now he's actually helping his team and after Anthony Davis went down with an injury, he has taken care of business.
Kuz led the Lakers to get their first win of the second half of the season with a 105-100 final result over the Indiana Pacers. Kyle is confirming he deserves the trust of his teammates and LeBron James showed that with a good pass to the 25-year-old that received at the corner and made the shot.
After the game, Kuzma talked about the play, explaining his communication with James, how they looked at each other during that possession, and the incredible reason why LeBron passed him the ball.
"We were looking at each other the entire possession. I was pretty much eye-f*cking him to pass me the ball. He found me and I made the shot," the Lakers players said.
In the end, the Lakers return to action with a big W over the Pacers and Kuz played a big role in that. They're ready to continue the good pace and demonstrate they're still the team to beat in the league. Kyle had a very good game, dropping 24 points with 13 rebounds, leading the Lakers to the promised land after the slump they suffered in the past couple of games before the All-Star break.
