Welcome to Nightly Pro Notables: a collection of the hottest sneakers and biggest moments of the night on August 10, 2020.
On this night, Lakers highlights were abound as Kyle Kuzma made a clutch shot for the W. Anthony Davis contributed by immortalizing a few Denver players on highlights. Footwear notables also include Kuzma amongst other Lakers who debuted J. Cole’s latest Puma sneaker.
Check below for all the notables on another day of bubble basketball.
Booker’s 35 Leads Suns to 6-0 Bubble Record
If only bubble games counted this season, Devin Booker might just be the league MVP. D Book notched another 30+ point game and even made ridiculous shots like this loooong three-pointer:
Giving Logo Lillard a run for his money.
Boucher’s Career Game
The talented Chris Boucher doesn’t get much run on the defending champion Toronto Raptors with Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka logging most of the big man minutes.
Both the Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks decided to rest players late in the game though which allowed Chris to shine with a career-high 25 points along with 11 boards.
Kyle Kuzma’s Clutch Bucket
While Kyle Kuzma has often been the scapegoat for any loss for the Lakers this season, he was directly involved in the W tonight against the Denver Nuggets. Not only did he tally 25 points on the night, but he hit the game-winning three with 0.4 seconds remaining.

Bol Bol’s Full-Court Cannon
The tallest player on the court had the best-court vision on this play. The 7’2″ Bol Bol corralled on this play and immediately threw a full-court pass to Nuggets teammate Mason Plumlee for the two-handed slam.
Double Poster Night for The Brow
Anthony Davis put up not one, but two poster dunk highlights today against the Nuggets. The first slam was via air mail from a driving Kyle Kuzma.
The lob pass could’ve been put anywhere and Davis’ long arms would grabbed it. Mason Plumlee attempted to recover for the block but just ended up on the wrong end of the posterization.
Somehow the second dunk was even more spectacular.
A.D. rebounded off the Kuzma miss with seconds ticking and some how pinned the ball to the top of the square on the backboard. Both Denver’s Nikola Jokic and Michael Porter Jr. contested (and possibly fouled) Anthony but the Brow still finished, getting two men on the poster.
Cole World in the Bubble
Puma athletes debuted a red colorway of J. Cole’s RS-Dreamer today, dubbed the “Blood, Sweat, and Tears”.
This includes Skylar Diggins-Smith of the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury:
The aforementioned Kyle Kuzma and Lakers teammate Danny Green also helped debut the red colorway:
