But like always, he rose to the occasion with a 28-point triple-double and played rugged defense towards the end.

Kyle Kuzma also had himself a double-double. He protected the rim well and had two blocks.This is a SCHRÖDER appreciation tweet....definitely a great pick up for the @Lakers and would love to see him stay longer here......THAT’S TUFF 🔥💯— ASISAT M.O.N (@AsisatOshoala) February 9, 2021 Former Thunder player Dennis Schroder cares more about the Thunder’s 1st round draft pick more than any current Thunder player.— Brandon Rahbar (@BrandonRahbar) February 9, 2021Pelinka trading Danny Green for Schröder feels like highway robbery lmao— Lake Show (@LakeShowFamily) February 9, 2021This version of Kuzma that’s been playing good defense and doing the little things floor is my favorite— pickuphoop (@pickuphoop) February 9, 2021Kyle Kuzma becoming a rebounding rim protector was not something I saw coming.— Colb (@___Colb___) February 9, 2021 Published 09 Feb 2021, 12:19 IST .
