Muscala delivered 16 points (6-10 FG, 4-7 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and one block across 35 minutes in the Lakers' 104-101 loss to the Trail Blazers on Tuesday. Muscala posted his second straight 16-point effort to close out the season, flashing his impressive floor-spacing skills once again in the process. Muscala closes out the campaign on fire from behind the arc, as he posted a 48.5 percent success rate over his last six games. The sixth-year veteran initially didn't see much run after being acquired from the 76ers at the deadline, but his late-season surge in opportunity and corresponding production at least give him some momentum heading into free agency this summer.
Muscala provided 16 points (6-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt), eight rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot across 38 minutes in Sunday's 113-109 win over the Jazz. When given ample opportunity, Muscala has produced solid numbers since joining the Lakers. What's most impressive from the 6-11 forward is his 3-point shot. He's averaged a career-high average of four attempts per game and is converting them at a clip of almost 40 percent.
Muscala will start at power forward in Sunday's game against the Jazz. Moritz Wagner had started each of the last four games since LeBron James was shut down for the rest of the season, but the Lakers have elected to switch things up and play the veteran Muscala in the starting five instead. Still, expect Muscala to play his typical dosage of around 20-to-25 minutes Sunday.
Muscala registered 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists and one steal across 24 minutes in the Lakers' 108-90 loss to the Warriors on Thursday. Muscala saw solid run off the bench for the third straight game, which led to a third consecutive double-digit scoring tally. The sixth-year veteran's minutes were at their highest point since his final game with the 76ers on Feb. 5, and his tallies in both points and rebounds were his best since a Jan. 29 game against the same Lakers squad he's now part of. With Kyle Kuzma (foot) potentially sitting for the Lakers' final three games, Muscala could be in for similar opportunity to Thursday's during those contests.
Muscala managed 10 points (3-7 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, and one assist in 19 minutes during Tuesday's 119-103 loss to the Thunder. Muscala reached double figures in scoring for the second straight bout, this after failing to do so in his first 11 games as a Laker. Given that he hasn't earned 20 minutes in a single game since joining the team, Muscala is only viable in the deepest leagues.
