What’s next for Davis and his Lakers?
Anthony Davis averages 26.7 points, 9.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 2.4 blocks and 1.5 steals per game this season. The superstar is also in the conversation to win the Defensive Player of the Year award after drastically improving the Lakers defense this season.
The critics and viewers around the world are divided between the LA teams this season with both having a great chance to win the title this season. While the Clippers have the deepest roster and the deadliest defensive duo in Kawhi and George, the Lakers have a certain LeBron James alongside Anthony Davis.
Davis and his Lakers currently have a 5.5 game advantage over the second ranked Clippers and will surely go into the playoffs as the number one seeds in the West. However, with no home-court advantage available in the Bubble, the incentive to finish above the Clippers would be less. But LeBron James and co. would want to get some momentum under their belt before the playoffs begin.
The former Pelicans star will surely hope to play a monumental part in leading the Lakers to a championship victory this season.
