Kyle Kuzma shared his thoughts on the Lakers’ mentality ahead of the final two games of the regular season.

Kuzma said the Lakers know they now need to be at their very best, otherwise they will fail to defend their title.

“We just know what time it is right now. It’s time to “get with it or get lost,” Kuzma told reporters, via Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation.

Kuzma and the Lakers (40-30) are fighting to exit the play-in tournament zone, but it seems very likely they will not climb to sixth in the standings to directly advance to the playoffs.
