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.
