Los Angeles Lakers star center forward, Anthony Davis, is quickly climbing up the NBA’s all-time scoring list. With just 29 points to go, Davis will move up one spot to the 135th spot on the list, passing Bob Dandridge (15,530). Moreover, AD needs 498 more points to become the 116th player to click 16000+ NBA points. And the glory is not too far away from Davis’ reach. He is running a sprint this season with an average of 25.9 points, 12.5 rebounds, and 2.6 assists in 43 game appearances.

While Davis’ individual success is important, he is ultimately focused on helping the Lakers find a place in the playoffs.

The situation was tensed up in the LA Lakers; locker room after their star forward, LeBron James, went down with a right foot injury that ruled him out for a minimum of three weeks. In the meantime, the Lakers’ newest point guard saw this as an opportunity and stepped up at the right time. After missing five consecutive games, Russell made a comeback and immediately took charge.

D’Angelo Russell asked Anthony Davis to take a backseat and took over the point-scoring responsibility. He scored 28 points against the Toronto Raptors and 33 points against the Knicks, which ended up in the losing cause. Nonetheless, Russell’s form remains crucial for the Lakers and Davis, who stands alone in the absence of LeBron James. Before LeBron James makes a comeback, the Davis-Russell duo must steal as many points as possible and move up the Western Conference ladder.
