Anthony Davis dropped 34 points on 11-of-21 from the field and a perfect 10-of-10 from the line in the Lakers' 116-98 win in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday.
Davis led his team in scoring, grabbed nine rebounds, threw out five assists and blocked three shots as well. After years of losing, he is within three games of his first NBA championship. As expected he made life difficult for Bam Adebayo early, putting the Heat's star in foul trouble by the end of the first quarter. Andre Igoudala then took up the challenge of guarding AD in the second half but failed to slow him down. Davis has solidified himself as the number one offensive option for the Lakers in these playoffs. If he continues to have games like these and the Lakers win the championship, Davis may end up taking home two different trophies.
