Postgame Thread: Pelicans roll Lakers, Anthony Davis is a Demigod

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

Rohan will have a recap up shortly, but for now, here's a thread to talk about how truly absurd Anthony Davis is. Down the stretch, Davis was the primary defender for entire possessions, was making jab-step fallback jumpers, threw down dunks all over the place, and made Pau Gasol look like a fool. He wound up with 32 points on 18 shots, 12 rebounds, 6 blocks, and only 2 fouls.

The Pelicans held the Lakers on defense pretty well, dominating in the second half in particular, allowing around 0.9 points per possession throughout the entire game.

Give me your best Anthony Davis gifs in the comments.
