Kyle Kuzma drops 33 points with four 3-pointersMarch 18, 2023 | 07:40 PM
Kyle Kuzma shrugged off a knee issue and finished with 33 points (12-for-23 FGs), seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in a 132-118 loss to Sacramento on Saturday.
Analysis: Kuz briefly exited Saturday's game in the first half, but that didn't stop him from dominating this game. He left due to a right knee issue, which is the same knee that held him out of Tuesday's game, as well as a game two weeks ago. However, he was still able to step up and lead the team in scoring with Kristaps Porzingis sidelined. Over the past two weeks, Kuz has averaged 1.2 steals per game, which has nearly translated to top-100 value. Unfortunately, his game hasn't translated well into 9-cat scoring, but he has been a consistent source of buckets.
