    I agree with this.

    Part of the reason is that Kuzma did hurt his hand if I recall and I'm sure the legs are jello at this point and won't be there no matter what he does for the rest of this season, i.e., unless he rested for a stretch. That is why I think his 3pt % has dropped... No legs! Couple that with scouting and one can see why his production has dropped.

    The kid is going to be fine. He seems like a gym rat and will get better. The biggest improvement in the offseason will be getting his body ready for the NBA season grind.

    95% of the players can't dress for s***. My gawd, hire a stylist.

    Damn it. Ingram is out. Kuzma @3. It's a good thing Zo is back healthy or we would've been royally screwed.

    One of the better games he's has recently. Attacking the rim with force, not settling for J's. 20 pts, 10 reb, 3 stl, 1 block.

    It was necessary. He was in rhythm when supposedly Julius would come back in to give him 3-4 mins of break. I actually liked that Luke was playing with the flow of his players and the game.

    Without BI, and with him attacking the paint so effortlessly, we had no choice.

    And Julius was sick so we had to rely on Kuz.

    He needed a game like this. He's been forcing his offense lately after he made a concerted effort to pick up his defense. Effortless offense is what makes him dangerous and so intriguing.

    This. He just needs to stop settling so much and attack the basket like last night. His scoring ability is so effortless at times.

    Shot 4-12 but still needed to be accounted for. OK night for Kuzma. On his free throws, he's taking his time before shooting them. Fouled James on that fade, complained vociferously and nearly got teed.
