In the Absence of Lebron James, Anthony Davis Dropped His Third Straight 30/10 Game

Without LeBron James on the court, Anthony Davis has been on a tear during his previous three games. The top center for the LA Lakers emphasized that regardless matter who is available. The mentality of dominance must remain constant.

Following his third straight 30-point, 10-rebound performance on Sunday. It was when the Lakers defeated the San Antonio Spurs 123-92, this is what Davis had to say:

“I just want to continue to have the attitude of dominating on both sides of the ball. No matter who is on the court, for us or for them.”

During LeBron’s absence, AD has done just that. Over his last three games, the former No. 1 selection has averaged 35.0 points, 17.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals, and 1.7 blocks. Without Davis’ efforts, the Lakers’ current three-game winning streak wouldn’t have been possible.

He appears to be the player the Los Angeles Lakers used to win a championship in 2020. Over the last two seasons, LA has yearned for this Davis, but injuries have limited him.

This time, AD seemed to be in a solid groove. He had a persistent back problem, but he overcame it and delivered the performance that everyone was expecting.

Anthony Davis’ acceptance of the superstar status is crucial to the LA Lakers’ success

Before the season began, a lot of fans, ex-players, and commentators emphasized that Anthony Davis would have to replace LeBron James as the team’s leader. Giannis Antetokounmpo, a two-time MVP, and Davis were formerly listed together, but when the Lakers won the championship in 2020, such comparisons lost their luster.

Over the past two seasons, Davis has fluctuated in performance even while healthy. Some even dismissed him, saying he wasn’t qualified to be the go-to player on a competitive squad. LeBron’s age made the Lakers dependent on him, which made it difficult for them to keep up their high level of success.

AD had a difficult start to the current season. Over the first 11 games, he had an average of a little over 20 points and 10 rebounds. Davis had little impact in the second half, which contributed to the Lakers’ poor start. To get him going, the Lakers have made modifications.

In the absence of LeBron James, Anthony Davis has provided the ideal reaction by assuming the position as the No. 1 option. During the latter’s absence, the Lakers were scarcely given a chance to win games, but Davis has effectively silenced the naysayers.

That is helping the Lakers win games for a spell, as expected. Tuesday’s game between LA and the Phoenix Suns will be a tough one.

If the Lakers want to extend their winning run to four games, Anthony Davis will need to perform well once again since LeBron James (adductor) is still uncertain.
