Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma admits he watched his rookie highlights before career night vs. Thunder
Kyle Kuzma finished with 32 points in the win and made a career-high seven shots from beyond the arc. Kuzma told reporters after the game that he watched highlights of his rookie season which helped him have the phenomenal night from distance versus the Thunder.
“Past couple days, I’ve been trying to look at my rookie highlights to see how I shot the ball and just trying to make adjustments, Kuzma said, via Christian Rivas of Silver Screen and Roll. “I was trying to this year shoot it and aim it, and really worried about it, but for me it’s just staying with my work ethic and watching film of the shots I made this year and last year.”
Kuzma is shooting 30.9 percent from the 3-point line this season. He shot 36.6 percent from distance last year. Hopefully, Thursday’s outing is a step in the right direction for the Lakers’ second-leading scorer.
The Lakers are now 25-21 on the year, good for eighth place in the Western Conference standings.
