“He scores in a variety of ways, he’s a threat in a variety of ways and we are continuing to wind him up from the 3-point line,” said Vogel, noting that one of Tuesday’s highlights developed when Philadelphia’s Mike Scott raced out to defend Davis – who’d made two of his four 3-point attempts already – behind the arc.But Davis pump-faked, Scott flew past and then, unimpeded, Davis “tears the rim down,” as Vogel described it.“That’s why we shoot 3s with Anthony,” the coach said, “to carry that threat.”Davis said he’s been working hard on his 3-point shot, and that he’s more comfortable and confident letting it fly from long range in the past month and a half – a feeling that’s supported by stats indicating that in 21 games in 2020, he made 42.9 percent of the 3-pointers he took.“It opens up the floor for me and it opens up the floor for the team,” Davis said. “I’m the type of player to try to play within the game and take the right shots. It’s just having the confidence of just letting them fly … it’s gotta be a balance and I think I’ve done a pretty good job of that.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years SHOOT IT, A.D.The Lakers haven’t made it a secret: They want Davis to shoot 3-pointers.And, in his first season with the organization, the 6-foot-10 power forward has obliged.He’s averaging a career-high 3.4 3-point attempts per game, almost one more per game than at any other point during his seven-plus-season career.That he’s making them at a 33.7 percent clip is great for the Lakers; that he’s taking so many of them might be even better.Related Articles Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed LOS ANGELES — LeBron James’ pronouncement in February 2019 that his intensity had been “activated” to a playoff level was met with some derision, especially when the Lakers went out and lost seven of their next nine games.Nobody’s mocking the late-season hustle this year.With 22 regular-season games remaining, the Lakers are 47-13 with a 5-½ game lead over the second-place Clippers, whom they face on Sunday.In other words, it’s getting to be “go time” for this Lakers squad with its serious championship aspirations.

I also stay in the moment, but they’ve seen the way I approach the game, the way I’m trying to stay as locked in as possible.“With the regular season, you’ve still got so many games throughout the week, whatever the case may be, but there will be a time. Right now, we’re playing for a growth mindset,” James continued. “How we can continue to get better throughout the regular season and how we can get better every week as the season continues to wind down – and how we can get better as a playoffs start.”Lakers coach Frank Vogel agreed with James that his teammates – especially his co-star, Anthony Davis – will be better for witnessing how the three-time NBA champion approaches the close of the regular season.“Anthony’s a player in his prime who can do it all,” Vogel said after Tuesday’s 120-107 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. “But to be around LeBron on a day-to-day basis, to see how he works, how he prepares, to see his mind and how he dissects the game before it ever starts with the preparation and the film work, his mindset to play through things, all these things have been great for Anthony to be around. They have made him already that much stronger, and these are lessons and experiences that he’ll carry with him throughout the rest of his career.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
