Los Angeles Lakers rising star forward Kyle Kuzma poured out an amazing first half of play on Wednesday night against the Houston Rockets at Toyota Center. Not only did Kuzma lead the Lakers in scoring during the first 24 minutes of action with 24 points, he did not miss a single shot from the floor on any of his first nine attempts.

ClutchPoints’ own Ryan Ward noted on Twitter that Kuzma’s career-high was 30 points heading into tonight’s contest, which he eventually passed late in the third quarter when he drained his seventh 3-pointer.

Ward also noted that Kuzma tied another rookie record on the season with the Utah Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell as the only two first-year players to make at least six 3-pointers in a game.
