James Worthy on Anthony Davis: He seems to have found the groove
For the fourth straight game Anthony Davis scored at least 30 points and grabbed at least 14 rebounds. His most recent performance against the Suns was capped with 37 points, 21 rebounds, 5 steals and 5 blocks.
The only other player in NBA history that had a statline line like that is Bob McAdoo, who played in the league in 1970s and 1980s. Lakers legend James Worthy discussed Davis’ recent form on Spectrum SportsNet.
“The five steals and five blocks that’s extremely impressive to go along with rebounds and scoring,” he said. “But AD seems to have found the groove and he seems to have good timing and knowing when they need him, setting good picks, rolling hard to the cup. If he’s not getting the ball, he’s setting himself up for offensive rebound.
“And then defensively you know here he is. If he’s not blocking shots, he’s altering shots. Tuesday a game in Phoenix he got a lot of deflection steals. Without LeBron he stepped up. Hopefully, when LeBron returns he can continue and sustain that play.”
