Kyle Kuzma had a rough Tuesday night against the Blazers, making just 5-of-14 shots from the field en route to his 14 points, eight rebounds, one triple and one block in 30 minutes off the bench.
The Lakers did not get the production they needed from Kuzma tonight. He was showing some signs of waking up towards the end of the seeding games during the restart of the season, but it appears that he's slid once again back into the Abyss of basketball mediocrity. The Lakers will not be able to avoid an upset by the Blazers if Kuzma does not find a way to step up and be the reliable third scoring option that the team needs him to evolve into.
