Anthony Davis’ white hot run of form marks an incredible turnaround both for himself and the Lakers.
Coming off his 55-point game against Washington on Sunday, Davis is now averaging 34.2 points, 15.4 rebounds and 2.9 blocks per game on 63/41/86 shooting splits over his last 10 games.
He has also led the Lakers to an 8-2 record over their last 10 games, despite winning just two of their first twelve.
Here’s how Davis’ teammates and head coach have responded to his stunning play:
Unbelievable man, on both sides of the floor. Playing like the MVP of this league… I think he’s just hit a switch where he knows how dominant he can be.
Knowing what he’s capable of is the most important [thing]… as long as he knows, that’s the most important part.
You talk about people in the MVP race… he should be up there for sure.
I’ve played with a ton of great bigs… I judge people off both sides of the ball, offence and defense, so for him to do it on both sides, you gotta give him a lot of credit.
He wants to be that guy… Whenever he’s healthy, feeling great about his body, you see those types of performances.
