Lakers Fans Happy After Anthony Davis' 30 Point, 15 Rebound Performance Snaps Losing Streak: "Best PF In The NBA."

Anthony Davis

The Los Angeles Lakers were looking to snap their 3-game losing streak, going into today's game. They were able to do so, with the game finishing 99-94, in the Lakers' favor.

The team got a fantastic performance from Anthony Davis, who got a double-double with 30 points and 15 rebounds. It was abundantly clear the Trail Blazers had no hope of stopping the big man. Carmelo Anthony put up 24 points coming off the bench as well.

Los Angeles Lakers fans reacted to Anthony Davis' dominant performance against the Portland Trail Blazers, with many claiming that he is the best big man in the league. While most would disagree with that statement, Anthony Davis is certainly one of the premier players in the game when healthy.

There is no doubt that the Los Angeles Lakers needed this win. LeBron James may be out with a knee injury for a while, and it is currently unclear when he will be able to come back. Russell Westbrook and Anthony Davis need to hold down the fort while he is away from the team, and we'll see how well they do at that task.

Going into the season, many people thought that the Los Angeles Lakers would be one of the best teams in the league. The rationale for that was obvious: they had a big three featuring LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Russell Westbrook, and a cadre of solid veterans surrounding them. However, things have not worked out that way, and the Los Angeles Lakers are currently a play-in tier team.

Over the rest of the year, the goal for the Los Angeles Lakers should be to try and get up to the 6th seed and avoid having to compete in the play-in tournament. Russell Westbrook notably claimed that their record is "0-0" once the team gets to the playoffs. That may be true, but there is a chance that they might not even make it if forced to play in the play-in tournament.

Hopefully, we see the Los Angeles Lakers figure things out going forward. There's no doubt that there's talent on the team, but the team as a unit has failed to be consistent.
