I always say I was cheated by not having the opportunity to see the maturation of players like Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Dominique Wilkins, Bill Russell, Jerry West, and many others. I am thankful for the ones I do get to witness every winter, I'm just being a greedy fan. Anthony Davis is one of those players I'm thankful I get to see. In this Era of Guards, you don't see too many Big Men with his type of dominance on the court, plus the fact that he is 21, it just makes it even scarier.
When your big man can double pump from 30 feet to win the game, the future is only bright. Davis dropped 41 points, 10 boards, and the game winning trey ball with 1.2 left. On the previous possession, Russell just hit 3 free throws to tie the game, capping off his career game. Davis scored 16 points in the 4th quarter and was 5-5 from the free throw line (10-10 for the game). Remember people this is your big man.
Anthony Davis trey ball was beautiful. I'm he nor Kevin Durant will forget this one
Both teams in this game are fighting for that 8th seed so this was a very important game, one we will look back on come April. I like what the Pelicans are doing right now, 7-3 in their last 10 games. Tyreke having a career season (finished with 22 points & 16 Dimes), averaging 17 & 6. Jrue Holiday and Ryan Anderson also averaging 15+, with big Asik down bottom. The only thing I suggest for this team is experience, more experience equal better players. This is a good young team that could easily shock someone.
