Anthony Davis had nothing but good words to say about the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers Frank Vogel.

Vogel and Davis will make their first appearance in the NBA Finals, as the Lakers won the series against the Denver Nuggets (4-1) and secured their place in the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010.

“(Vogel) spends hours and hours of watching film, breaking down games, schemes, figuring out what’s the best recipe for us to be successful.

He puts the right players on the floor at the right time. He trusts us that, if someone has it going and he wants to sub someone in, and (we say) ‘Let that unit roll or let that guy keep rolling,’ he trusts us.

He’s a defensive-minded coach. He’s all about defensive rating. It shows. We are a defensive team. He’s always, as he calls it, changing up the pitches. We never give a steady diet. We change it up. Give different looks,” Davis said, via Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

The Lakers will now face the Miami Heat or the Boston Celtics.
