Following their most recent 116-97 home victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Los Angeles Lakers have risen to eighth place in the Western Conference rankings. Anthony Davis of the Lakers helped the team win, as his defensive abilities appeared to play a large role in keeping the opposition at loss.

On Saturday, Davis played confidently, finishing with 22 points, 13 rebounds, 6 blocks, 4 assists, and 3 steals.

“I think the biggest difference is just that we’re just having fun, We’re holding each other accountable. If somebody messes up we’re yelling, screaming at him. But nobody is taking it personal. Because we all know what we’re here for, to try to win. So we’re having fun, we’re having a great time out there playing basketball, and we’re staying together.” Anthony Davis said during an interview after the game.

In addition, LeBron James had a double-double of 24 points and 12 assists. D’Angelo Russell led the club in scoring, shooting 11 of 17 from the field and 6 of 12 from beyond the arc.

Russell has been averaging 23.7 points in three April games, shooting 47.2 percent from three-point range and 54 percent from the field. If he maintains his current level of play, Russell has the potential to become another go-to scorer for the Purple and Gold.

Furthermore, his availability has been critical to keeping the squad in postseason contention. As a result, his contributions have fueled speculation regarding his chances of being named Defensive Player of the Year again.
