Kyle Kuzma is still trying to find his place in the Los Angeles' lineup with LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Kyle Kuzma has been used primarily off the bench this season and is averaging career lows in minutes (23.6), points (12.1) and rebounds (3.5) per game. However, the Lakers star registered a season-high 36 points in the OKC win and dismissed any rumours of a trade deal when he claimed that, “Nah. That’s for y’all to talk about, I don’t really care. I’ve been through it multiple times, and obviously, you see it, but it doesn’t even matter at this point.”

“Everybody on this team has something left to prove. AD is trying to win a ring. LeBron is trying to win one in L.A. I’m trying to establish myself... Dwight’s redemption”
We don’t take games lightly.”
