The interior of the Los Angeles Lakers is ambitious. Anthony Davis believes that his team has the necessary strength not to play the play-in and directly qualify for the post-season. An ambitious statement when you know that the Angelinos are now 12th in the West.
And two wins in a row for the Lakers, to wonder who can stop them (lol). Last night, the Purple and Gold narrowly won 112 – 111 against an Indiana team that found its leader Tyrese Haliburton. A victory guaranteed by Anthony Davis, who occasionally signed a big double-double in 31 points – 14 rebounds. AD will have especially contributed to registering the winning basket, followed by a decisive counter on Haliburton during the following action. A performance that must have given confidence to the pivot of the Lakers.
Declaration After Match
He declares after the match his intentions for the end of the season, attention interesting remarks:
“We don’t want to play play-in. We want to secure a spot [in the playoffs]” – Anthony Davis
Anthony Davis: “We don’t wanna be in the play-in tournament. We want to secure a spot (in the playoffs).”
Words that do not seem so whimsical either: certainly – with this victory – the Lakers remain 12th in the West, a place which does not guarantee the Play-in tournament. But that would be without taking into account the almost nil gap with the other franchises: only 2 and a half games separate 12th place from 6th. Everything is therefore possible.
