How will Anthony Davis’ injury Impact the Lakers?

Despite Davis’s early exit, the Lakers fought valiantly. LeBron James stepped up, showcasing his offensive brilliance with 40 points and distributing the ball effectively. D’Angelo Russell also contributed with a double-double, tallying 23 points and 13 assists. However, the Lakers’ defense struggled without their defensive anchor. The Warriors capitalized on the absence of Davis, scoring 45 points in the paint after his departure.

“They missed Anthony big time. He’s such a great defender when he’s in the paint. His absence opened the paint for us and we went to the rim often in the second half,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.
