The Los Angeles Lakers’ newest star Anthony Davis may not be in the best of shape just yet, but that didn’t stop him from dominating the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night as his team ran out to a big 120-91 win.
Despite a hurt shoulder that ended up keeping him out for the fourth quarter, ‘AD’ posted 40 points and grabbed 20 rebounds against the rebuilding visitors. 26 of his points came from the charity stripe, setting a new Lakers record with the display. His performance had helped the purple and gold come back from a 13-point first-quarter deficit. Ja Morant led the Grizz in scoring, putting up 16 points. Davis’ sidekick, LeBron James, had 23 points and eight assists in a game in which he played three minutes fewer than Davis in.
