NBA Summer League Championship: Lakers Vs. Blazers (VIDEOS)
Nba Summer League Championship: Lakers Vs. Blazers (videos)

The Los Angeles Lakers won the 2017 NBA Championship game against the Portland Trailblazers behind a 30-point Finals MVP effort from Kyle Kuzma, 23 points from Matt Thomas and 20 points from Vander Blue. Even without Lonzo Ball (who won the 2017 NBA Summer League MVP), the Lakers stepped up big time, all playing the right way and moving the basketball.

After the game head coach Jud Buechler stresses how important it was for his players to buy into their system (which was moving the ball), and how proud of his players he was for doing exactly that. Blue’s 20-point effort came on his 25th birthday, and his next hope is that he proved enough in summer league to earn a Lakers training camp invite.

Ball couldn’t say enough about his teammate Kuzma who has been such a big part of all the Lakers summer league wins. Kuzma chats about what he plans to work on in the summer and what he’s learned from this experience.

Ball also reacts to earning MVP honors and Buechler talks about their championship celebration. It’s all in our videos below!
