D’Angelo Russell Sends Strong Message On Anthony Davis After Lakers Defeat Pelicans

The Los Angeles Lakers broke their winning streak with the loss to the New York Knicks, but they did defeat the New Orleans Pelicans. Anthony Davis wasn’t really happy following the terrible loss to the Nicks and D’Angelo Russell had a big message for him. He praised his teammate for the impeccable performance against the Pelicans.

Davis played really well during the game, delivering 35 points, 17 rebounds, and an assist. He was able to shut down the Pelicans and LA got the best of the game. Davis is a true leader and everyone knows it. Russell was loud and clear: Davis is a superstar!

“To answer your question, AD is a monster,” Russell said via the NBA Interviews YouTube channel. “He continues to dominate the games. From defensively or offensively, tonight, he did a little bit of both. So, he continues to help our team. And then our supporting cast was amazing as well. I think that’s what got us over the hump.”

D’Angelo Russell, Anthony Davis, and Lakers players lead the team to a win

Lakers players are determined to make the playoffs this season. Davis, Malik Beasley and the rest of the guys did an incredible job. Beasley earned words of praise with his incredible performance.

“After shootaround today, he got a lot of threes up, and it showed,” Davis said via the NBA Interviews YouTube channel. “He’s very hard on himself, and as far as shooting the basketball, he never wants to miss two in a row. And he came out on fire. Anytime he’s making shots, it just opens the floor up more for all our guys to get to the basket. Even when he’s missing, I mean, you still got to respect him as a shooter. But when he’s making, he gets very hot, and the rim gets very big for him.”

Davis and his teammates have a long way to go. It seems like the team will deliver better performance this season. Let’s see what happens within a few weeks. LA could easily celebrate another major win.
