The NBA bubble teams made their dramatic return on Thursday evening, starting with the New Orleans Pelicans against the Utah Jazz. While the restart’s debut was indeed a thriller, it was impossible to top what was next to come.
With some of the game’s biggest stars lacing it up, former Kentucky Wildcats forward Anthony Davis stole the show. He willed the Lakers to a narrow win over the Clippers, scoring 34 points while making 16/17 free throws.
During a rather off-night on the offensive end of the court for teammate LeBron James, Davis proved once again how he’s one of the few players in the NBA who simply can’t be guarded. The Clippers had no answer for the former Wildcat and the box score/game’s outcome spoke true to that.
This surely won’t be the last time these two teams meet. And if the Lakers are to further advance past the Clippers, Davis will be the deciding factor.

The Lakers have much better team chemistry than the Clippers. They love to play together. That's one of the big reasons why I'm picking them to win the NBA Finals.— Kevin O'Connor (@KevinOConnorNBA) July 31, 2020
Sounds like a relatively “hot” take considering how undermanned the Lakers are.
The Jazz trump the Pelicans to begin the NBA restart.
