There was definite hype for Anthony Davis’ return to New Orleans, considering it was the first game against them Pelicans since he requested for a trade to the Los Angeles Lakers.
He wasn’t the only one trying to put in work against an old team, with Brandon Ingram and a Josh Hart also playing for revenge.
Lonzo Ball did not play in the game due to an illness.
In his return, AD scored 41 points and came down with 9 rebounds, as the Lakers kept feeding him the rock. LeBron James scores 29 points and 11 assists in the game as well.
There was injury scare for both Lake Show stars but they both came back and finished the game, bringing the team back from double digit deficits to win the match.
Ingram finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds on the game, while Hart had 9 points and 5 rebounds.
Afterwards, Davis spoke on talking shit to his former teammates and exchanging jerseys with Jrue Holiday.
