Anthony Davis didn’t destroy his former team

Anthony Davis also stacked up numbers against his former team, filling up the box score  with 21-points, 14 rebounds (6 offensive!) and six blocked shots.  However, for the second straight game, it was an uneven performance. Davis only shot 6-21.

To be totally honest, this play right here will be the talk around Lakers Nation after the excitement of the LeBron/Zion showdown fades. Add one more nagging injury to the growing list of AD’s medical report.

The Lakers faithful got a possible nightmare scare in the fourth quarter. First off, take a look at the hustle to get back in transition defense. If the NBA hasn’t sent the Defensive Player of the Year trophy yet, feel free to send it. It appears his left hand and elbow was banged pretty good pinning Nicolo Melli’s shot to the backboard. To make things worse, it was reported that he dinged his hand on the previous offensive possession as well. Load management time folks.

Lake Show Life really set it off with an article about Rajon Rondo and his spot in the rotation. If you haven’t read it, click on the purple words. Then read the comments. They were passionate. Well the debate won’t stop after this game. It might get stronger as the season finishes up.
