Kyle Kuzma exploded for 37 points in one game, Lonzo Ball returned to the starting lineup with an improved outside shot, and JaVale McGee continued to surprise with back-to-back 20-point efforts. It goes without saying that LeBron James was also brilliant.

Joshua Dobbs is more than just a brilliant mind, he may turn out to be a very good QB too

Wouldn’t that be something? Have you ever made a seemingly outlandishly random statement about something that actually eventually happened?
