Anthony Davis had an “Un-AD” like game for the Los Angeles Lakers!
The only real reason it seems like Anthony Davis had a bad game is because of the way he destroyed his former team last year. It started with Davis setting a NBA scoring record for a player facing his former team for the first time with 41 points.
In three games last year, Davis averaged 36 points and 12 rebounds. In this game, he took the supporting role behind James.
Anthony Davis finished with 17 points (5-16 shooting!), 6 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals and 3 blocks. Even though AD got numbers, his efficiency was not there on both ends early. Instead of being aggressive, he settled for jumpers. He missed numerous shots and free throws.
But the Lakers started to adjust and the quick ball movement opened up space for AD to get the team close at halftime.
New Orleans Pelicans writer, David Grubb mentioned to Lake Show Life in the past that AD struggles with the physicality of certain players. Steven Adams was on the list.
But by halftime, none of this mattered. LeBron James took over while the rest of the Lakers shot lights out from 3 point range. Read on to see the two favorites of the Lake Show Life staff.
