Anthony Davis Under 24.5 Points

Davis struggled mightily to find any rhythm on the offensive end during the preseason, as he has been forced to play center, which Davis has made known that he does not like to do. He has consistently settled for tough mid-range looks and was highly inefficient during the exhibition season. He averaged 14.5 points on 38.5% shooting from the field and 25% from 3 in five games.

Davis could struggle in the early going, as the Lakers are still looking to develop chemistry with him and LeBron James and their numerous newcomers, Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard and DeAndre Jordan. Davis had 20 points on 58.3% shooting from the field and 66.6% from the free-throw line in his lone appearance against the Warriors this preseason in 30 minutes of action.

He averaged 9 points and 5.7 rebounds while shooting 53.2% from the field in 12 postseason games. Griffin is expected to have an increased offensive role with Kyrie Irving sidelined for the foreseeable future as a result of his refusal to get vaccinated, and Griffin will likely see around 25 minutes a game. However, the addition of LaMarcus Aldridge and Paul Millsap and the development of Nicolas Claxton could cut into his minutes early into the season.
