New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis had a career night on Friday against the Los Angeles Lakers as he had the best game of his young career, going for a career-high 32 points on 12/18 shooting while grabbing 12 boards. He also added 3 assists and 6 blocks to help lead the Pelicans to a 96-85 win over the Lakers, and New Orleans is now 3-3 on the year and looks like a darkhorse playoff contender in the Western Conference.
But the story everyone is talking about is what transpired in the locker room after the game, as he was treated by his teammates to an odd celebration of sorts.
The former Kentucky Wildcat ranks among league leaders with a 21.2 points-per-game scoring average while collecting 11.4 rebounds and four blocks per contest. He’s also averaging 2.2 steals per game, and if he can keep producing at this rate, there may be an MVP award in his future.
