Anthony Davis began demanding the ball in better post positions and started capitalizing on his opportunities. Danny Green and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope offered better defense against the dribble penetration of McCollum and Lillard. Alex Caruso was a legitimate offensive option in the 4th quarter.
Overall, most of LeBron’s assists came in the 4th quarter – with 3 lobs highlighting the display. Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard gleefully devoured the tastefully served assists to him on a platter.
