Kyle Kuzma sends scary warning as Lakers prepare for must-win Game 6

Kyle Kuzma Lakers

In the opinion of Kyle Kuzma, the Los Angeles Lakers appear ready to atone for their defeat in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, with the team focused on winning one more game.

In Friday night’s loss to the Miami Heat, the Lakers were unable to capture their first NBA title in a decade, due in part to a miss of a wide-open 3-pointer and a bad pass in the closing moments.

Getting rid of the bad taste of that finish can be accomplished by focusing in part on the fundamentals to win Sunday night’s Game 6.

Even with the loss, the Lakers still hold a 3-2 advantage in the series and have the deadly combination of LeBron James and Anthony Davis poised to go all-out to win the game. That likely explains the perspective that Kuzma and his teammates have taken toward Sunday’s contest.

James and Davis each have important reasons for getting a win in Game 6, which would give James the rare distinction of having led three different franchises to an NBA title.

In James’ case, an injury-plagued first season with the Lakers last year had his critics claiming that he was on the downside of his career. For Davis, one more win would represent his first NBA title after having been acquired by the Lakers during the offseason.
