Kyle Kuzma says Luke Walton has done "a great job" coaching through a variety of issues the Lakers have endured this season and backed his coach like he did last season. "I think Luke has done a great job this year handling all the adversity that we've been through," Kuzma said. "Especially coming through with all these injuries to suspensions and then trying to figure out how to balance a whole new team. It's a tough job. I'm glad I'm not coaching this team because there would be a lot of different issues I would have to handle too. So I think he's done a great job and as long as we just do our part and they do their part, everybody should be fine."
