With the Lakers set to face the Pelicans, the team will focus on containing legitimate MVP candidate, Anthony Davis. The Kentucky product came out of the gate firing on all cylinders this season and will look to keep it going against the visiting Lakers.

Kobe went as far as to say Davis reminds him of a more athletic version of a certain former teammate, via Winters:

Davis’ numbers heading into the matchup with the Lakers are off the charts. The 21-year-old center is currently leading the NBA in rebounding (13.0) and blocked shots (4.2). Davis is also putting up the solid offensive numbers with 24.8 points per game while also being among the league leaders in steals with 2.5 per contest (5th in the NBA).
