On October 5th, Beijing time, the NBA Finals continued. Today’s game,
The Heat, who had a last stand, have a very strong desire to win today. They played a small climax as soon as they came up and kept suppressing the Lakers. Although the Lakers got a lot of three-point shooting opportunities here, but Danny Green and Pope hit the iron one after another, making the team passive.
At a critical moment, Kuzma stood up from the bench. With 2 minutes and 21 seconds left in the first quarter, Kuzma hit a difficult three-pointer from the bottom corner, sounding the Lakers' clarion call for counterattack. In the last offense of the first quarter, LeBron held the ball to the Heat and forced the ball to Kuzma in the corner with 1 second left. Kuzma is worthy of being a good catcher. After catching the ball, he didn't hesitate to shoot and hit the ball! The Lakers also took this to narrow the difference to 3 points.
With 10 minutes and 9 seconds left in the second quarter, Kuzma forced a breakthrough with the ball to meet Iguodala. Kuzma didn't brake and hit a layup against Iguodala, and at the same time made an extra penalty. After the free throw hit, he helped the Lakers lead the score.
Seeing Kuzma's performance, the U.S. media couldn't help but embarrass him: "A group of idiots petitioned not to give Kuzma a championship ring. It's really fun. He just plays on the court, and this is his job. the way."
In the next game, Kuzma did not perform much offensively, but as long as he gets a chance, he can always give back. Until the last 34.4 seconds of the third quarter, Kuzma finally received a pass from Anthony Davis in ambush and hit a three-pointer steadily, helping the Lakers narrow the point difference to 5 points.
With 6 minutes and 37 seconds left in the final quarter, Kuzma, who has not touched the ball for a long time, got another chance in the bottom corner. He once again seized this rare opportunity and made a decisive three-pointer to help the Lakers bite the score. In the last 5 minutes, LeBron missed a three-pointer, and Kuzma made an offensive rebound. Although he failed to hit, it also fully demonstrated his enthusiasm. In the last 4 minutes and 31 seconds, Kuzma forcibly attacked the basket and caused a foul, making two free throws. Kuzma fought to the last moment. Although Kuzma performed well on the offensive end, but the Heat dominated the game but the Lakers eventually lost.
