Davis, don’t let your guard down “GSW is the defending champion”
Anthony Davis (30) made up his mind.
The Los Angeles Lakers (hereinafter referred to as Lakers), to which Davis belongs, beat the Golden State Warriors (hereinafter referred to as Golden State) 117-112 in the first leg of the Western Conference semifinals held in San Francisco on the 3rd. Davis gave the seventh-seeded Lakers a 1-0, series advantage through the play-in tournament.
Davis dominated the field in this game. He recorded 30 points, 23 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 blocks while running for 43 minutes and 50 seconds, boasting high efficiency with a field shooting success rate of 57.9% (11/19) and free throw success rate of 100% (8/8).
“We know Golden State is the defending champion,” Davis said in an interview with the press after the game.
“The only way to beat this team is to give us confidence,” he said, emphasizing that we must arm ourselves properly.
As Davis said, Golden State was trailing 0-2 in the series against the Sacramento Kings, but eventually reversed it 4-3 and advanced to the second round of the playoffs. In addition, in the first game of the Western Semifinals, they almost caught the Lakers in last-minute pursuit.
After taking a 14-point lead at the end of the 4th quarter, the Lakers allowed a 14-0 score run about 5 minutes while allowing 3-pointers to Jordan Poole and Stephen Curry.
However, Curry and Poole’s last 3-pointer did not go in, and the Lakers won by 5 points with Dennis Schroeder’s free throw.메이저사이트
