Talen Horton-Tucker led the Los Angeles Lakers in scoring with 17 points, helping his team defeat the Toronto Raptors 110-101. The sophomore guard also added 6 assists and 4 rebounds. His teammate Alex Caruso shared his thoughts on THT’s game and his development as a player.

“He just has such a great ability to get downhill and get to the paint, he has such great body control and strength for his age,” Caruso said.

“And then he has long arms to be able to get in there and finish when he needs to. It’s just part of his development. He’s been such a natural scorer and natural ball handler getting to the rim that it’s just part of his growth.

“Playing in the league you realize what you can do, what you can get away with. Game by game he’s doing a great job of trying to figure that out. I think tonight just shows the growth that he’s making.”
