The 2021-22 season of the National Basketball Association (NBA) begins, little by little, to straighten up to Los angeles lakers that find a consistency with Lebron James in its prime, and other pieces like Malik Monk running.
The offseason saw the franchise make a myriad of changes. While many new faces came in, many of the 2020 champions had to leave, either in the massive exchange with Washington wizards for Russell westbrook, or as free agents.
In this transfer, the LA had to give Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Montrezl harrell Y Kyle kuzma. Now, the one that stands out the most of the three is the last one, and without a doubt that James and company are regretting having yielded it. His numbers in the clutch prove it:
Kyle Kuzma, a star in the clutch
According to statistics from the NBA.com site, Kyle Kzuma is one of the best players in the NBA clutch. He leads the league with 13 triples in those moments, and also holds the best record when the match enters the “chiquita”. He has 16 wins and 4 losses.
This Sunday in the victory of the Wizards against Orlando magic, reaffirmed his enormous present: He ended with 27 points, 22 rebounds and the most important, covered the attempt of a Magic player to tie the game on the buzzer.
