Kyle Kuzma, Spencer Dinwiddie take shots at each other’s teams after Wizards beat Mavericks

Dinwiddie’s remarks were not well received by the Wizards, particularly not by Kyle Kuzma. In a quote tweet, Kuzma fired back at Dinwiddie by taking his words about playing winning basketball and firing them right back at him.
