F - LAL
After putting up a dud his previous game, Anthony Davis got back on track in Monday's win over the Nuggets, scoring 27 points (9-15 FG, 9-12 FT) with six rebounds, five assists, three steals, two blocks, and two turnovers in 38 minutes.
AD needed this game as a confidence booster after three consecutive sub-par performances since his 42-point outing against Utah. He posted a typical line against the Nuggets as he and LeBron James both played 38 minutes in the win. Don't be surprised if either Davis or James sits in the team's final game against the Kings on Thursday.
Anthony Davis scored eight points (3-14 FG, 0-4 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks in Saturday night’s 116-111 loss to the Indiana Pacers.
Davis said it best himself “I definitely have to be better, and I will be.” Since the restart you have seen both ends of the spectrum for Davis, completely dominating a game to completely taking the back seat. Potentially chalk up the latter to saving himself for the playoffs. Regardless Davis is one of the best in the league and will bounce back from such a horrific performance.
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.
Anthony Davis is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Rockets and is expected to play.
The Lakers will be without LeBron James and the Rockets will be with Russell Westbrook. Davis should lead the Lakers in scoring and rebounds and makes for a hot target in DFS.
Anthony Davis scored just nine points (3-11 FT, 3-4 FT, 0-3 3PT) with eight boards, five assists, and one turnover in 29 minutes in Wednesday's 105-86 loss to the Thunder.
AD was coming off a 42-point performance in his last game against the Jazz, and just couldn't get it going in this one against a tough Thunder squad. The Lakers turn around and face the run-and-gun Rockets in less than 24 hours and it wouldn't be surprising to see Davis get back on track in that one. Expect a big performance from AD Thursday against a small Houston team that won't have an answer defensively for 6-foot-10 power forward.
