Kyle Kuzma had missed both his threes in the first half in San Antonio Sunday. He had missed the other four threes he had attempted in his first game back from injury this season, making him 0-of-6.
Then this is the one he hits — a heave to beat the buzzer before the half.
That was not from 47 feet (at half court), probably closer to 38-40 feet. Either way, it counts as three. Kuzma is not a great three-point shooter (30.3 percent last season), but to start the season he’s a bit rusty. That will change.
The Lakers led by 13 at the half and started to pull away in the third from a San Antonio team that could not stop L.A. in the paint (and the Lakers were hot from three, too, beyond just Kuzma).
