Rajon Rondo was a major distributor against the Nuggets on Sunday, finishing with nine assists, three points (1-of-3 FG), four rebounds, one 3-pointer and one steal.
Rondo's performance was hindered by five turnovers during his 21 minutes of action but he remains an important component for the Lakers as they can generate easy looks thanks to Rondo's creativity on the offensive side of the ball. Playoff Rondo has clearly regained his bonafides as an assist specialist. Whether he can complement that with a reliable jumper will vary from night-to-night. Kyle Kuzma also faced turnover headaches in this contest, wrapping things up with four turnovers to accompany eight points and three boards. With little going for him besides picking up the slack as an off the bench scorer, Kuzma is going to have a difficult time earning major minutes if he fails to score efficiently.
