The Lakers Game in Brooklyn is a big hit for the th franchise.
For the first time in nearly six weeks, big superstar Anthony Davis has returned to the typical lineup. MCL’s sprained left side kept him out for 17 games, a match the team overcame 7-10%.
Before the game, there was no specific minute limit for the 6-foot-10-year-old but the head coach Frank Vogel mentioned took care of his workload.
How has Anthony Davis performed after injury?
Once in control, the Lakers welcomed their teammates back by putting on a lob between LeBron James and Davis.
AD looked excellent from the start, scoring six of the Lakers’ first eight points and scoring three of his game-high four in the first seven minutes of the game.
However, after that first period, Davis had to sweat a lot. He did most of his damage early on but couldn’t get up to speed for the rest of the match.
In his 25 minutes, he shot 3/8 from the field while recording 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal.
He didn’t find much of his potential in this game with only one of his three goals being a leap while two more cornered shots remained.
Despite the spotlight on playing football in Brooklyn, there hasn’t been much focus on his return as James assured the Lakers that the Lakers would take care of the business against a short-lived Nets team.
James finished with 33 points, seven rebounds, six assists, three steals and two saves in 34 minutes in a 106-96 win.
Davis’ likely for the remaining three games of the Lakers’ ongoing journey?
We’ll know more soon but it’s highly unlikely he’ll play in all three games as the team gears up for games back to Philadelphia on Thursday and Charlotte on Friday before concluding their trip in Atlanta on Sunday.
