So far, Howard’s second stint with the Lakers is going pretty well. He’s averaging 5.8 points and 7.0 rebounds in 20.0 minutes per game and hasn’t been a distraction off the court.
Against the Memphis Grizzlies, Howard got a loud roar from Lakers fans when he entered the game. It’s clear the fans in Los Angeles are aware that Howard is a changed man since his first stop in LA.
The Lakers are 3-1 on the young season. They are getting Kuzma back on Friday against the Dallas Mavericks. The talented swingman has recovered from a left foot stress reaction.
Last season for the Lakers, Kuzma averaged 18.7 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game while shooting 45.6 percent from the field, 30.3 percent from beyond the arc and 75.2 percent from the free-throw line.
LA will be eager to get Kuzma back in the lineup so he can develop a rapport with LeBron James and Anthony Davis, as well as the other players on the roster.
