Lakers superstar Anthony Davis returned to action in a game against the Nets after a 17-game absence. The 28-year-old power forward played 25 minutes during which he scored 8 points, grabbed 2 rebounds and blocked 4 shots as his team booked a road win.

After the game AD shared how he felt during his first game in an extended period of time. “I felt great,” he said. “First 4 minutes my wind was fine and that adrenaline goes away the chest started hurting a little bit so the next 3 I was a little winded.

“But after that I was fine. Tried to fly around, got some good looks that didn’t go through. Tried to do it on the defensive end and help my team. Physically felt fine, my knee felt fine. Ready for Philly.”
