Former Ute Kyle Kuzma led the Los Angeles Lakers to a 122-112 overtime victory over the San Antonio Spurs Wednesday night. After scoring 30 points in 44 minutes of action, Kuzma was lauded for his “ironman” play in a Los Angeles Times report.

"He plays to exhaustion and then most times plays through it," said Lakers coach Luke Walton. "They have the saying, 'Fatigue makes a coward of us all.' And that's true, except for a few special players. They'll fight through that. And I thought Kuz tonight did.”

Kuzma’s performance came on the end of a back-to-back that began Tuesday in Utah.
