Anthony Davis played 30 minutes in a loss to the Rockets, scoring 17 points (5-8 FG, 7-9 FT) and adding 12 rebounds with three assists, and one block.
That makes two games in a row where AD has looked complacent, taking 11 shots on Wednesday and only eight tonight. Davis averaged 17 shots per game before the bubble, so it is perplexing why he is not more aggressive offensively - especially with LeBron James missing the game due to a groin injury. Although this was AD's 29th double-double this season, he was marred by turnovers, giving up a season-high seven turnovers against a stingy Houston defense. He'll look to rebound on Saturday against a Pacers front-court that saw Deandre Ayton go for 23 points, ten boards, and four blocks earlier tonight.
