Anthony Davis briefly left Wednesday’s 139-117 win but returned to wreak havoc, pouring in 42 points to go with 15 rebounds, three assists, three steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers.
The Lakers predictably had no answers for Davis, who was a sterling 15-of-18 from the floor and 10-of-11 from the line while committing just one turnover. The early scare underscores the most stressful part of owning The Brow, who is no stranger to the mid-game locker room trip. His health is the only thing that could possibly keep Davis from cruising to a top-5 fantasy finish — and that’s a conservative estimate.
