Kyle Kuzma scored a season-high 36 points (15/24 FG, 4/6 3PT, 2/4 FT), along with seven rebounds in the LeBron, AD and Danny Green-less Los Angeles Lakers’ 125-110 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena on Saturday night. The Lakers, who responded to their 4-game losing streak with a 8-game winning streak, improved to 32-7, whereas the Thunder fell to 22-17. LA had seven players in double-digit.
“Everybody on this team has something to prove. You know AD’s trying to win a ring, Bron’s trying to win in L.A., I’m trying to establish myself. … (Go) down the line – Dwight (Howard), redemption. Everyone’s got something. (Alex) Caruso (making a name for himself). So we don’t take games lightly. … We want to go out and dominate every game. We don’t see why we can’t win every game,” Kuzma said after the game, per Dave McMenamin of ESPN.
