New, comment

Kyle Kuzma coming back from injury has not exactly been smooth. But he took a pretty big step forward last night.

After showing all the signs of an expected trap game at the tail-end of a road trip, the Lakers unfathomably stormed back from double-digits to beat the Bulls en route to their sixth straight win.

A wild night in the Windy City that saw LeBron James notch his third straight triple-double, Kyle Kuzma showing signs of life and Dwight Howard snatching Coby White’s soul.

Which brings us to tonight’s episodes.

Talk O’ Tuesday

The Alex’s spend a majority of the episode giving their live-reactions to the Lakers’ comeback win and highlight the players and plays that helped change the course of the game.

Also discussed on the show, more thoughts on Howard’s renaissance, Kuzma’s role and a potential new show name. Key-word: potential.

Locked on Lakers

Pete and I start by laughing at the Lakers’ incredible win and how they simply refuse to make our lives easy. Rest in power, to that first recap I wrote about last night’s win. Still, there’s something to be said about winning even when you don’t play well, and last night’s game definitely meets that description.

We start the second quarter by, well, congratulating Pete on his new gig. We spend a few minutes talking about that and this weird industry, but Spectrum wanting his content is the kind of accomplishment you just have to celebrate.

Finally, we discuss Dwight Howard’s continued inspired play, Anthony Davis doing, well, the opposite of that Tuesday night, James being James and more.
