Anthony Davis makes NBA history with another monster performance, but it’s not enough as Lakers fall to Suns

Anthony Davis has been a monster lately for the Lakers, who were on a three-game winning streak ahead of Tuesday night’s game against Phoenix. The winning streak ended with a 115–105 loss to the Suns, but Davis’ dominance continued with a string of statistics to believe in: 37 points, 21 rebounds, five steals and five blocks.

Since blocks and interceptions became the official statistic in 1973, Davis became the only player to field that line.

This is wonderful for me. Watching the first half of this game, I found myself saying “same old AD” as he didn’t hit the paint or force the descent like he did in his previous three outings, instead lingering around the perimeter and making shots in a jump. (he had done two before, but I thought that was a bad sign). But the Suns cut their descents and Davis remained patient while the Lakers neutralized him somewhat, leaving him behind and picking up the pace.

Until some lanes started to open up due to shots, and in the transition he broke the attacking glass and got to the free throw line, which was the theme of this recent run. By the end, Davis had made 15 of 16 free throws and 11 of 17 shots. He ate rebounds all night. He was late to react to a few defensive paint moves, or maybe he was just exhausted by the end of such an attempt, but you can’t ask for more from a guy who is now only the third man in Lakers history. to record four games in a row 30-15. He joins a pretty good company.

The Lakers are still not the best team. With this loss, they are 5-11 and remain the only team in the league not to have won an away win. However, if Davis continues to play like this when LeBron James returns and they can both stay healthy for the rest of the season (big if), they could eventually be eligible for this playoff race.
