NBA analysts liked the way Los Angeles Lakers big man Anthony Davis handled Zion Williamson from the New Orleans Pelicans. Young Zion is one of the strongest finishers at the rim. Well, he couldn’t find a solution to Davis’ defense. He is definitely not a match for the former Pelicans big man.
At one point of the game, Williamson was making his way to the rim. Davis was right there to greet him.
Anthony Davis has a solution for Zion Williamson
AD is one of the best shot-blockers and rim protectors in the NBA. We all noticed that he is on a shot-blocking rampage this season. Remember what happened in Tuesday’s win over the Houston Rockets? Davis had five rejections against the team.
In the 2019-20 NBA season, Davis was averaging 22.1 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists, and 1.7 blocks per game. He had a big role on the roster and actually helped the team get the best record. Los Angeles won the title inside the NBA bubble. LeBron and Davis played really well, giving the team a chance to win the 17th title in team history.
Davis had a slow start of the season, but his numbers are seeing an increase. The Lakers big man is averaging 22.1 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists, and 1.7 blocks per game. It’s more than obvious that Davis will help the Lakers maintain the best record in the NBA.
Los Angeles is defending the title, and players will need every bit of their talent to finish the season with great success. Davis criticized the defense and players got the word. The Lakers improved on both ends of the game. Davis is working really well with LeBron James, and they won’t stop here. Los Angeles stands on top of the West and they will stay there for a while.
Lakers head coach Frank Vogel supports his superstars. He has created a load management plan for both LeBron and AD. They have to be healthy and strong for the rest of the season. Davis has already missed two games due to his injury. LeBron was added to the injury report on multiple occasions, but he played in every game.
