Anthony Davis and the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Miami Heat Wednesday night at Staples Center. After the game, Davis had some playful words for his teammate, guard Russell Westbrook. Russ dumped in 25 and dished 14 assists while gathering 12 rebounds for a very impressive triple-double.

Although Westbrook’s performance was fantastic, the Heat nearly pulled out the victory in overtime. Westbrook accounted for a whopping eight turnovers that kept the game close. Davis jokingly thanked him for not doing more to cause the Lakers to lose in his post-game press junket. It was all in sporting good fun. The remarks were caught by Heavy.

“He’s fearless, relentless, and then also you know his ability to see the floor. We had a conversation about what he wants to see from us so we can help him cut down the turnovers. We talked about it and it showed tonight.

I say that and he had eight. He had a triple-double, not a quadruple-double.”

A couple more assists would’ve led to that quadruple-double, although not the kind a player typically wants. Westbrook and Davis will have to work on those turnovers in practice. Either way, the Lakers are now 7-5 and looking to stay on track in the early standings.

Anthony Davis earned himself a double-double. His line read 24 points, 13 rebounds, and 4 assists. Other than the turnovers, the duo were pretty dominant. Los Angeles welcome the Minnesota Timberwolves next for a Friday night tilt.
