Lakers vs Clippers game was a very closed call, everyone had eyes on LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard. But the biggest star of the game was Anthony Davis, who was unstoppable as the best defenders of the Clippers, Leonard and Paul George couldn’t stop the 7-footer.

Davis scored 34 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists, and dominated both sides of the court. The Clippers had no answer to stop Davis whereas the other player from Lakers could have done more. LA Clippers focused on stopping LeBron James so much that they forgot Anthony Davis is their biggest problem.
The Clippers can beat LeBron James, not Anthony Davis
Anthony Davis is one of the most versatile 7-foot shooters in NBA history who even made Kawhi Leonard look like a regular guy. Leonard was having a hard time creating space against Davis, where he resorted to pump fakes and misdirection. Kawhi and Paul were totally helpless against Davis and they need to find a solution to the problem.
ANTHONY DAVIS is 1 of 1!!!! Carry on…

The Clippers had no options to beat Davis when he was on offense as he attempted 17 free throws on the first night of NBA restart. Anthony Davis was playing so freely that the Clippers were not even able to guard him as it seems that Marcus Morris was not even there. LA Clippers were able to beat down LeBron James, but they had no answer to stop Anthony Davis.
Lakers vs Clippers Finals Predictions
Lakers vs Clippers could easily face each other in the NBA Western Conference finals. It will be a more interesting game even compared to the NBA finals as both the Los Angeles teams are the title contenders this season.
The Clippers need to find a solution to the Anthony Davis problem or else the same could be repeated in the finals night. Lakers vs Clippers results now depend on Davis and not James as both sides will use their best weapons for the final showdown.
