Tania Ganguli: Some fun facts about Kuzma’s big first quarter from the Lakers. He’s the first Laker with 20 in the first since Kobe in 2011. Only six players have had multiple 20-point quarters this season: Steph Curry, James Harden, Damian Lillard, Paul George, Kemba Walker and Kyle Kuzma
Erik Horne: Nod to Steven Adams from Paul George on the game-winning shot: “I’ve got the best screener cleaning my guy for me to get a free catch up top. We ran it so many times this year.” Game-high seven screen assists by Adams created 17 points.
Kyle Neubeck: “I don’t know why he was mad, but he’s always in his feelings,” Embiid says of Westbrook’s reaction to the late fourth quarter foul.
Erik Horne: Terrance Ferguson on Paul George’s game-winner: “I mean that’s PG. You don’t get too excited anymore about those – I mean they happen so many times. PG’s doing what PG does and we just got to see it and get a win.”
