    Kyle Kuzma scored 28 points Tuesday, going 10 of 16 from the field, as the Los Angeles Lakers topped the Boston Celtics 108-107. Kuzma pulled down four rebounds and dished out three assists, tallying a plus-minus of +2 in his 26:37 of playing time. Kuzma went 5 of 7 from behind the arc.

    Impact

    Kuzma is definitely back on track, having gone 16 of 24 from the floor and 7 of 11 on 3-point tries while totaling 43 points over his last two games. The rookie shot just 35 percent over the three games that preceded this hot streak.

    News

    Kuzma posted 28 points (10-16 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), four rebounds and three assists in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 108-107 win over the Celtics.

    Impact

    In a game that came down to the wire, Kuzma provided a nice spark off the bench, which was a welcome sign for Kuzma owners who have seen his output trail off in the past few games. He drained five threes out of seven attempts which will surely boost his 37.2 percent success rate from long range. Kuzma looks to be sent to the bench whenever coach Luke Walton elects to go with a taller trio in the backcourt, but when the matchup is right he is more likely to see extended time.

    Kyle Kuzma scored 15 points Sunday on 6-of-8 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the New York Knicks 127-107. Kuzma did not grab a rebound nor have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -1 in his 10:27 on the floor. Kuzma went 2 of 4 from behind the arc.

    Impact

    The rookie got back on track after it appeared he was hitting a wall this month. Kuzma shot just 38 percent while averaging 11.7 points in the first 10 games of January.

    News

    Kuzma will shift back to a bench role for Sunday's game against the Knicks.

    Impact

    The Lakers went with a smaller starting five on Friday vs. the Knicks, starting Kuzma and Julius Randle at power forward and center, respectively. However, they'll go back to their typical big unit, with Randle and Brook Lopez in the top unit, while Kuzma comes off the bench. Kuzma could see a few less minutes with the demotion, though he's still a big part of the Lakers' regular rotation. Over the last five games, Kuzma has averaged 13.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.2 steals across 30.0 minutes.
