Anthony Davis drops 40-20, hits 26 FTs as Lakers rally past Grizzlies

first_imgDavis played only 31 minutes. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, he is the first player to have a 40-20 game in 31 minutes or less since 1954-55. Prior to Davis, the quickest 40-20 game was 33 minutes by Baylor in 1961.Davis is also the fourth player in league history and first since Michael Jordan in 1987 to make 26 or more free throws.“This solidifies why we went out and got him. He was big time for us,” said LeBron James, who scored 23 points for the Lakers. Los Angeles is off to its first 3-1 start since winning its first eight in 2010.Davis was questionable two hours before the game due to a right shoulder injury suffered in Sunday’s win over Charlotte. He did some dribbling and shooting on the court before being cleared.Davis had 16 points and nine rebounds in the first quarter but went back to the locker room at the start of the second to get the shoulder checked and re-taped. Coach Frank Vogel thought he might have to go the rest of the game without Davis until he saw him come back to the bench.ADVERTISEMENT Magalong drops Albayalde’s name in ‘ninja cops’ probe PLAY LIST 06:56Magalong drops Albayalde’s name in ‘ninja cops’ probe00:50Trending Articles02:46Senators rally support for Robredo; laud her for accepting anti-drug post02:11Makabayan bloc defends protesting workers, tells Año to ‘shut up’03:07PH billiards team upbeat about gold medal chances in SEA Games01:38‘Bato’ to be ‘most effective’ CHR head?

They didn’t have an answer and he was terrific,” Vogel said.Los Angeles trailed for most of the first half but took a 49-47 lead into the locker room at halftime when Davis grabbed a rebound, drove down the court and tipped in his own miss at the buzzer.The Grizzlies (1-3) led 65-59 with seven minutes remaining in the third quarter when the Lakers went on a 27-2 run to close out the quarter. Davis scored 16 points during the rally, with all but two coming at the line. The final 10 Lakers’ points in the quarter came via Davis’ free throws.“Everyone was playing well,” Davis said. “I was just trying to be aggressive. It was a close game until the third quarter. I knew some of their players were in foul trouble and tried to get them out of the game. ”Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins agreed with Davis’ sentiment, saying “I thought he was super aggressive, and you are rewarded when you are aggressive.”Davis said his shoulder was still sore after the game, but he thinks it will improve since the Lakers have a couple days off.Memphis raced to a 15-2 lead before Los Angeles started to work its way back. Ja Morant led the Grizzlies with 16 points, and Jonas Valanciunas added 14 points and 11 boards.Morant, who was the second pick in the June draft, had only three points in the first half before finding his groove in the second.“Coming into an environment like this we have to play all four quarters,” Morant said. “It was wow moment coming in (facing James and Davis) but I was still trying to go out and play my game.”TIP-INS Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James, center, and forward Anthony Davis, right, react after the Memphis Grizzlies called a timeout during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles, Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2019.

Likewise, Austria charts at number seven for the ladies, but does not appear in the guy’s favourites.New Zealand, which is fourth for women, only appears at number eight for men.Over 400 people responded to the survey, where it was found that gender really does have an effect on desired destination. To keep both parties happy, couples looking for holiday harmony should book flights to Australia, the USA or Italy, which all ranked highly for both sexes. Top destinations for men1. Thailand2. USA3.

GreeceInterestingly, Skyscanner search data for the most popular destinations shows that flights to Spain top the charts. While only 17% of men claim they call the holiday shots, and the majority of couples believe destination choice is a joint decision, Spain was actually the seventh most popular destination for men but didn’t even make the women’s top ten, proving perhaps that men have more holiday power than they realise, or admit to!Once on holiday more compromise is required because although both sexes agreed that sightseeing and dining were the favoured holiday pastimes, gender stereotypes then come into play. Sunbathing is the third top choice for women, while men only rank it as sixth in their pastime preferences. Shopping is the fifth most popular holiday pastime for women while men were far less keen on hitting the shops, scoring it as the ninth most popular pastime. Men however seem to enjoy a drink on holiday with this pastime taking the fourth spot, while women ranked it in only ninth.Top 5 activities for men1. Sightseeing2. Dining3. Wildlife and nature4.
