Anthony Davis Racks Up Game-High 31 Points On Saturday

Los Angeles Lakers forward/center Anthony Davis scored a game-high 31 points in Saturday's loss to Philadelphia, shooting 13-for-22 from the field and sinking two treys with five attempts. He added seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block to his line. Davis logged a team-high 39 minutes, but he still showed some signs of rust by committing five turnovers. AD has just returned from injury, so the Lakers have been careful with him, but it looks like he isn't limited by any minute restrictions anymore. That's great news for owners ahead of Tuesday's big clash with the Clippers.

LeBron James Reaches Big Milestone With 29 Points

Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James scored 29 points in Saturday's loss to Philadelphia, passing Kobe Bryant for third place on the NBA's all-time scoring list. LeBron now sits on 33,655 points and he has his sights next on Karl Malone, who finished his career with 36,928 points. Leaving aside the big milestone, James had a pretty awful evening, committing eight turnovers and shooting just 1-for-6 from downtown on his way to finishing with a team-worst minus-22 rating. His line also included eight assists and seven rebounds with 9-for-18 overall shooting from the field. The Lakers are now set for another battle with the Clippers in a matchup that hasn't been very good for LeBron this season. He's shot only 37.2 percent from the field and a shocking 17.6 percent from downtown in two previous meetings against them.

Al Horford Scores 16 Points With Six Rebounds

Philadelphia 76ers forward/center Al Horford had a solid 16-point, six-rebound outing on Saturday against the Lakers, shooting 6-for-9 from the field and 2-for-5 from behind the arc. He had finished with single-digit points twice in the previous three games, so this was a much-needed improvement from the veteran. Horford's shooting has been very streaky this season and his efficiency is at 45.3 percent for the season, which is by far the worst mark in his career. With that said, he still finds ways to stay productive with his all-around ability, and the next matchup against Golden State is a favorable one.
