Lakers’ forward Kyle Kuzma reshares a tweet of him clamping up Warriors superstar Stephen Curry defensively with a humourous quote.
The Los Angeles Lakers continued their triumphant run tonight, as they took down the Timberwolves 137-121 tonight. This puts the Lakers on a three-win streak, and they have been undefeated ever since the All-Star break.
LeBron James led the Lakers yet again with another triple-double, scoring 25 points, grabbing 12 rebounds, and dishing out 12 assists. Montrezl Harell had another strong night off the bench, scoring 25 points. Kyle Kuzma and Talen Horton-Tucker both had strong nights off the bench yet again, as they scored 16 points each.
For the Wolves, both Karl Anthony-Towns and Anthony Edwards scored 29 points apiece. However, they could not keep up with the Lakers. The Lakers beat the Wolves on the boards, as well as on their 3-point shots.
Kyle Kuzma has a hilarious reaction to a tweet of him locking up Stephen Curry
Signing Kyle Kuzma on a 3 year, $40 million extension has been proving out to be a steal for the Lakers. The 4th year forward has been stepping up big time ever since Anthony Davis has been sidelined due to injury.
Kuzma has made his presence felt on the offensive floor when needed, but it is his defensive intensity that has been helping the Lakers more.
Kuz, despite having a blunderous air-ball last night, had a wonderful game against the Warriors. He finished the game with 17 points, five rebounds, and four assists. One of his best plays however came on the defensive end.
Late in the 3rd quarter, Stephen Curry was seen making a push ahead, and Kuz caught him on a match-up. Curry did his usual razzle-dazzle, which works in most of the cases. However, Kuz did not fall for the same and managed to stop Curry from making his way to the hoop.
Kuzma shared a tweet of the play, and captioned it, “Sir there will be no more bink binks on this island lol”:

Kyle Kuzma is proving to be an incredible asset for the Lakers and would like to keep evolving while he has mentors like LeBron James there to guide him.
