The Los Angeles Lakers will enter their third matchup in the last four games against the San Antonio Spurs without their superstar center, as head coach Darvin Ham announced pregame that Anthony Davis would sit out of Saturday night’s contest with a left calf contusion he sustained on Friday. Ham added that LeBron James, as expected, would suit up in San Antonio. This is just the second full game Davis has missed this year.
The San Antonio Spurs (6-14) will look to snap their seven-game losing skid tonight as they host the Los Angeles Lakers (6-11). The Spurs and Lakers will meet for the third time this season with the Lakers 2-0 versus the Spurs. GAME REWIND The Spurs are coming off a 105-94 home loss versus the Lakers.
Anthony Davis' dominant play over the last five games hasn't made him immune to the type of criticism he has gotten used to.
