Monumental Davis but the Lakers beaten in Phoenix


 » I don’t need any motivation. I just go out there and play my game. In fact, I think I just found my rhythm. “And what a “rhythm” at the moment for Anthony Davis! Last night on the floor of the Suns, he again signed an exceptional performance statistically: 37 points, 21 rebounds, 5 steals and 5 blocks! All at 11/17 on shots and 15/16 on free throws. Hard to get cleaner.

His crazy production, however insufficient to win in Phoenix (115-105), allows him to currently ride a series of four consecutive games with at least 30 points and 15 rebounds, which had only been achieved by the illustrious Elgin Baylor (seven times) and Shaquille O’Neal (1999) in the great history of the Lakers.

His former coach not surprised

Forced to assume more responsibility in the absence of LeBron James – six of the last seven games missed – the interior has been running since the start of the season at 26.4 points, 12.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 2.1 steals and 2.1 blocks on average, at 56% shooting and 83% throwing. And so, for four games: 35.5 points, 18.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.3 steals and 2.3 blocks on average, 62% in shots and 92% in throws.

Statistics worthy of his best years with the New Orleans franchise, where he played his first seven seasons in the big league. «  The last matches speak for him. He’s the player he’s always been, I know how talented he is “, confided about him Monty Williams, now coach of the Suns but who had precisely coached him with the Pelicans. «  It is one of a kind. He’s always been like that, able to imprint his game in so many ways “, greets for his part Russell Westbrook.
