What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Frank Vogel, asked about Anthony Davis when he returns, said the direction the Lakers will likely go in is Davis starting at the 5, and LeBron playing backup 5, at least for the base/initial looks. – 5:03 PM

Interesting convos in the #Metaverse watching the game…
#NBA has to get a better lineup of games though… but telling you, this will be big for league if they continue to develop with #Meta … personalized ad opportunities, and the courtside angle 💯🔥

Jaren Jackson Jr. yesterday:
✅ 26 PTS
✅ 8 REB

Jackson Jr. and Anthony Davis are the only players in the NBA this season to record multiple games with at least 25 points and five blocks.
The only other player to record even one such game is Jae’Sean Tate. pic.twitter.com/cWYsgsiM1k10:41 AM

More on this storyline

At least Anthony Davis was spotted on the court before the game going through an individual workout, the first time he’s done so publicly since spraining a knee ligament against Minnesota on Dec. 17. Davis moved well on the injured leg despite wearing a bulky brace on the knee. Sources said the brace was merely precautionary and that the prognosis for Davis’ recovery is still good. The Lakers are scheduled to provide an update on Davis’ recovery as early as this weekend, though his return isn’t expected to closely follow. -via Los Angeles Times / January 10, 2022
