Los Angeles Lakers Vs. Brooklyn Nets: Kyle Kuzma, Lonzo Ball, Brook Lopez
Los Angeles Lakers Vs. Utah Jazz Preseason (videos)

In what many assumed to be D’Angelo Russell’s revenge game against the Los Angeles Lakers, it was really Brook Lopez and Kyle Kuzma who shined. Lopez put up 34 points and 10 rebounds against his former team, including six three-pointers, routing the Lakers to 124-112 victory.

Kuzma started in place of Larry Nance Jr. (who is expected to be out 4-6 weeks, as he recovers from a fracture in his left hand), and finished with 22 points and 13 rebounds, becoming just the third rookie this season to record a 20-and-10 night. The other two are Ben Simmons and Lonzo Ball.
