Anthony Davis is averaging 37.7 points per game on the young season and is well on his way to having his best season as a pro. Kevin Durant, who knows a thing or two about putting up big scoring numbers, told ESPN that he thinks AD will win the League’s scoring title this season:
“[Anthony Davis is] probably going to lead the league in scoring this year easily … 50 for him is a good game, and now [he’s like] move it to the next one,” Durant said.
“It’s hard to defend him,” Durant said. “You can’t. His first step is probably the quickest I’ve seen in a while at his position. He’s long, he can shoot it, he can dribble it, he can shoot the 3 — so he’s doing just about everything out there on the court.”
Despite Davis’ monster numbers, the Pelicans currently sit at 0-3. Against the Spurs last night, the Brow was held in check, scoring just 18 points in a 98-79 loss.
