Anthony Davis got a “Load Management” night the right way. Did his thing efficiently and sat down.

Anthony Davis had an easy night and got to rest his backside early, scoring 21 points on a wildly efficient 5-of-9 shooting. Remember there was a stretch that he couldn’t get to the line? That wasn’t a problem in this game. He got to the line ten times and hit them all.

Anthony Davis is not fair when he is hitting the fadeaway jumper. It is almost as unblockable as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar‘s famous “Skyhook”

In his 30 minutes, AD filled the box score with four rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block. Games like this show the maturity of Davis and seeing the big picture.

The Lakers have around five games left until the All-Star break. These are the dog days of the season. It’s nights like these that business needs to be taken care of early so AD can rest his growing list of injuries.

This is the way championship teams do it. Get in, do the job and get out as quickly as possible.
