Big man Anthony Davis posted a season-high 50 points (on 20/29 shooting), grabbed seven boards, dished out six assists, tallied four steals, and blocked a shot in the Los Angeles Lakers’ 142-125 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night at Staples Center. The Lakers improved to 21-3. After the game, Davis talked on their 4th straight victory and his 50-point performance:
“The team was telling me, they weren’t telling me how much I had, but they were saying, ‘Get 50.’ Usually I don’t really pay attention. I just go out there and play and try to get the win. But it’s hard when your teammates are constantly reminding you, ‘Go get 50! Go get 50!’ So they made sure I was constantly reminded,” Davis said, per ESPN.
