Anthony Davis improves in his first Western Conference Finals but says the Los Angeles Lakers have not done anything special yet.
The Lakers star Anthony Davis had an outstanding outing for his team in Game 1 with 37 points and 10 rebounds. He converted 12 of 21 shots from the floor and shot 20 points in the second half.
His performance ensured that the Los Angeles Lakers charge to a 126-114 victory over the opponent Denver Nuggets in game 1 of WCF.
“They were just telling me to be aggressive,” Anthony Davis said.
“They told me that in order for us to get to where we want to go, they’re going to lean on me. My job was to come out and be aggressive.”
“It was obviously the first time I’ve been in a Western Conference Finals, so it was new to me but once the ball gets thrown up to start the game, I’m ready to go.”
“We haven’t done anything special. We took care of our home court and we have three more to go.”
The Los Angeles Lakers had been giving slow performance in last two series, dropping Game One against Portland Trail Blazers and the Rockets.
They improved, taking a double digit lead with a 34-21 second quarter and pulling out to a 103-79 lead at three quarter time.
“Coach did a great job putting our practice plan together. We still are trying to practice every other day, to stay in rhythm and that benefitted us tonight.”
“We still looked sharp on everything, a couple of mishaps on defence but that happens.”
