Anthony Davis played well in Friday's Game 1 loss to the Rockets, recording 25 points (10-of-16 FG, 4-of-4 FT) to go along with 14 rebounds, one trey, one assist, three steals and three blocks.
On paper, AD's numbers look pretty darn good, however, the game of real-life basketball (unlike fantasy) isn't won on paper but on the hardwood. Tonight, Davis' pleasant-looking line was simply not enough to carry his team passed the Rockets. Expect him and LeBron James to crank things up to another notch or two in Game 2 as they attempt to even the series.
