Kuzma ended with 15 points (6-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 16 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one steal in 29 minutes during Monday's 117-98 victory over the 76ers. The Wizards won for the fourth time in five games, and Kuzma led the way on an afternoon when Bradley Beal took just 12 shots in 33 minutes. The ex-Laker has been on a tear over the last month, posting 10 double-doubles in his last 13 games. On the year, he's now grabbed at least 15 boards four times.
Kuzma produced 16 points (7-18 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 37 minutes during Saturday's 115-110 loss to the Trail Blazers. It's puzzling that Kyle Kuzma's odds of winning the league's Most Improved Player award aren't higher. His departure from Los Angeles to his new home has completely transformed his game. After Bradley Beal (COVID-19), Kuzma is the top producer for the Wizards, and his 18 double-doubles earn him a league rank of 16th in the category.
Kuzma had 19 points (7-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, nine assists and one block in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 112-106 victory over the Magic. Kuzma was quiet offensively during the first half, but he came alive during the third quarter with 12 points. He set a season high with nine assists and delivered his 16th double-double of the campaign while falling one dime short of the first triple-double of his NBA career.
Kuzma contributed 29 points (12-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-7 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one block in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 122-118 win over the Thunder. Kuzma has caught fire lately after a midseason dip. In the seven games coming into Tuesday, he averaged 26.3 points, 12.1 rebounds and 2.7 assists. Tuesday's performance was his third time reaching at least 29 points during this stretch. With Bradley Beal entering protocols again, Kuzma is in an excellent position to continue his efforts.
Kuzma finished Sunday's 102-100 win over the Magic with 27 points (10-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 22 rebounds, one assist and one block in 38 minutes. Kuzma's recent heater continued Sunday, as he pulled down a season-high 22 rebounds to post his seventh double-double in the last nine games. Over his last eight games coming into the night, Kuzma averaged 23.4 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.8 threes.
