Anthony Davis put up 42 pts, 12 reb, 5 ast, 3 stl, and 3 blk and the Win against the 2nd seeded Phoenix Suns, 123-110. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Alex Caruso added 17 apiece. What do you think? Can the Lakers avoid the play-in tournament for the seventh and eighth seed? The competition there is going tough as the Golden State Warriors, Dallas Mavericks, the Portland Trail Blazers, and the New Orleans Pelicans are making a strong case to enter the playoffs. Let's see if the Lakers can hold on without LeBron James.

Anthony Davis needs these kinds of performances in their remaining games. Kyle Kuzma and Andre Drummond should step up to help AD. The Lakers beating the Suns is a good sign to bring them confidence.
