Meanwhile, Lakers Head coach Darvin talked about Anthony Davis’ return to form after the game. Ham was happy to witness AD’s aggressive play and 21 free throws. Ham claimed that the squad benefits from Anthony’s presence alone. Anthony has consistently been a strong force for us, and today was no exception. Darvin Ham argues that when James returns, AD must continue to be the driving force. He claims that Davis must start playing well if the team is to succeed. The entire locker room is aware of this.

Ham went on to say that he is aware of how important it is for Anthony to perform like that and get the team rolling. The team’s best chance of victory is when Anthony Davis is performing like this. Everyone in the locker room is aware of this. Davis averages 34.5 minutes per game this season, 24.3 points, 11.2 rebounds, and 2.5 assists.

In the past few games, Davis has started to play more aggressively. When he shares the court with James and Westbrook, both of whom are incredibly ball-dominant, he prefers to adopt a passive position. However, as the Lakers’ recent games have shown, wonderful things happen when they funnel the ball inside to Anthony Davis.

The Lakers are now receiving the version of Davis that assisted them in winning the 2020 championship after two unsuccessful and injury-plagued seasons. Only time will tell if he can keep up this type of performance with a completely healthy roster. The Lakers could still have a good number of victories ahead of them if he succeeds, though.
