Kyle Kuzma shot 5-of-9 from the field and 4-of-4 from the foul line in Saturday’s win over the Rockets, scoring 17 points with four rebounds, two assists, one blocked shot and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes.
Game 5 was Kuzma’s best offensive game of the series, and it came at a good time as the Lakers were able to send Houston packing. On a night that saw the Lakers set a franchise playoff record with 19 3-pointers, Kuzma was one of five players to make at least two. And he'll be of even greater importance in the conference finals, as Los Angeles should receive a much tougher challenge from either the Clippers or the Nuggets. Sep 12 10:43 pm (EST)
