'Old-school' Davis drops 50 points on Timberwolves

Sports | AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE 10 Dec 2019

Anthony Davis scored 50 points as the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 142-125 to take the best record in the NBA.

Davis made 20 of 29 shots from the field, most of them inside the paint, to notch the fourth 50-point game of his career and his first with the Lakers.

"He had four steals, a block and great defense for all 39 minutes he was out there," coach Frank Vogel said. "To be able to perform on that end of the floor and anchor us and still go for 50 in what I feel is an old-school, smashmouth way of getting 50 ... Living at the free-throw line, post-ups, offensive rebounds, crashes, all those types of things ... just an old-school performance."

Davis also had seven rebounds and six assists.
