Kuzma finished with 18 points, Hart 16 and Larry Nance Jr. 15 to complement a team-high 11 rebounds for the Lakers, who began a three-game trip with an overtime win at Dallas on Saturday.
The Lakers shot just 39.6 percent in the game.
Memphis took command from the get-go, riding a pair of 3-pointers from Brooks to a 13-4 lead.
