Often bothered by health problems, Davis has regained his luster this season. He leads the entire Silver Tour in rebounds per game (12.6) and ranks 11th in points per game (27.2).
In the duel of the day, he showed great efficiency by making 22 of his 30 shots, in addition to hitting the target on his nine free throws. Plus, he left the Wizards with nothing around the ring by getting 17 rebounds.
On Friday, Davis also shone against the Milwaukee Bucks, scoring 44 points.
For a rare time in the shadow of a teammate, LeBron James also looked good adding 29 points to the board. Lonnie Walker IV (20 points) and Russell Westbrook (six points, 15 assists) also contributed to the Lakers win.
