Through the first four games of the season, Anthony Davis was pulling in nothing but ugly stat-lines for the most part. His New Orleans Pelicans team being winless, shooting 38% from the field and averaging under 20 points per game.
Anthony Davis ends struggles with monstrous performance
Davis erupted for 33 points in the second half alone and tied his career-high with 43 points.
Headlines were headlining, analysts were analyzing, critics were criticizing the Brow. Heck, I had some fellow co-workers argue me that Andre Drummond is a better overall player than Davis after these struggles. At long last, this nonsense has ended. Anthony Davis is back folks!
Davis erupted for 33 points in the second half alone; finishes the game tying a career best 43 points while adding in 10 rebounds 4 steals and 3 blocks. AD's Pelicans would eventually fall to 0-5 despite the valiant effort; taking the defeat to an extremely good Atlanta Hawks team 121-115.
This performance skyrockets Davis' scoring average up to 25.2 through five games; a performance like this hopefully shows that AD is out of whatever slump he was in, and that the Brow can propel back to potential MVP status.
