BY THE NUMBERS
20: Rebounds grabbed by Ed Davis at Milwaukee on Feb. 4, marking a career high and the most by a Laker over the past two years.
59.7: Percentage shot by opponents guarded by Davis within six feet of the hoop, which was 5.6 percent lower than the league average.
123.5: Davis’ offensive rating*, which ranked fifth in the entire NBA.
*Offensive rating is an estimation of points produced per 100 possessions while a player is on the floor.
Davis strung together a standout debut season in purple and gold by delivering on both ends of the floor. The 25-year-old was particularly adept with his efficiency, especially out of the pick-and-roll. Davis needed to make 18 more baskets to qualify for the NBA’s leaderboard, and would have ranked second in the NBA in field goal percentage (60.1) if he had done so.
IN HIS OWN WORDS
“I think I had a solid year overall. From day one, my first thing was I was going to come in and do whatever Coach (Byron) Scott needed me to do: bring energy every night and just try to be the most active guy out there on the court.”
