Kuzma nets 24, lifts Lakers past short-handed Hornets 101-93

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Frank Vogel isn't complaining about the Los Angeles Lakers finishing a seven-game road trip with a 4-3 record.

"I think all of our guys are really fatigued right now," the Lakers' second-year head coach said. "We are stretched really thin with all of the injuries and the compact schedule. To come out of it 4-3 on this stretch, we feel good about that."

Kyle Kuzma scored 24 points, and the Lakers held on for a hard-fought 101-93 win against a Charlotte Hornets team missing five of its top six scorers on Tuesday night.
