DOMINATE DAVIS

Forward Anthony Davis has been on a roll for the surging Los Angeles Lakers.

An eight-time NBA All-Star and a member of the NBA 75th Anniversary Team, Davis is averaging 35.3 points, 15.6 rebounds and 2.89 blocks while shooting 64.8% from the field in his last nine games.

On Dec. 4, Davis posted 55 points, 17 rebounds and three blocked shots in the Lakers’ 130-119 win over the Washington Wizards. He joined Kevin McHale as the only players to have at least 55 points, 15 rebounds and three blocks in a game since blocks were first recorded in the 1973-74 season.

Behind Davis, the Lakers have won eight of their last 10 games after beginning the season 2-10. They are 2-0 on their current six-game road trip.

Los Angeles’ Week 8 schedule includes road games against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday (TNT) and the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday (ESPN).
