In anticipation of the Philadelphia 76ers facing off against the Los Angeles Lakers, Sixers forward Paul Reed is gearing up for a challenging task – guarding the formidable Anthony Davis.

“He’s a big flopper, so make sure that I don’t get in foul trouble early. Can’t be too aggressive with him. You know, he’s gonna be flailing. So, gotta make sure that I stay out of foul trouble,” Reed candidly remarked about Davis, per Austin Krell.

This season, Davis has been a pivotal force for the Lakers, averaging 22.1 points, 12.1 rebounds, and 3.4 assists in 35.4 minutes per game.
