Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma was motivated by hecklers in Cleveland that trolled him about former teammate LeBron James.
On Wednesday, Kuzma drained a clutch 3-pointer to secure a 97-94 win over the Cavaliers. After the game, he said his late hot streak was thanks to a fan with a sign that read: “LeBron got Kuzma his RING!”
“I was just ready, I was ready for it,” Kuzma told reporters about the shot. “Plus, there was some hecklers during the game, talking to me. It was their fault, really. It was their fault,” he said about the corner 3-pointer that put Washington up 95-94.
