Timing is everything for Lakers' hero Kuzma

Sports | AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE 14 Nov 2019

Kyle Kuzma hit two clutch three-pointers as the Los Angeles Lakers bounced back to score a 123-115 road victory over the Phoenix Suns.

Kuzma hit back-to-back three-pointers in the final three minutes of a see-saw battle to finally sink the Suns, shortly after Phoenix had taken a 113-111 lead.

A LeBron James three-pointer put the Lakers 114-113 ahead before Kuzma weighed in to stretch the lead to 120-113.

Kuzma finished with 23 points off the bench while Anthony Davis led the Lakers' scoring with 24 points and 12 rebounds.

"I've been finding my rhythm all season," Kuzma said. "I feel like every single game I've been getting better with my rhythm and timing. It kind of clicked a little bit. I know I can shoot."

James added 19 points with 11 assists and seven rebounds as the Lakers made an instant return to winning ways following a loss to Toronto.

The win saw the Lakers improve to 8-2 at the top of the NBA's Western Conference, continuing the franchise's resurgence under head coach Frank Vogel.

Devin Booker and Ricky Rubio led the Suns scoring with 21 points apiece.
