During Wednesday’s game against the Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers player Anthony Davis suffered an injury and had to be carried off the court in a wheelchair.
In the fourth quarter of the game, Kevon Looney accidentally struck Davis over the head with his arm. As a result, the Los Angeles Lakers eventually lost the game at the Chase Center with a score of 106–121.
After the shock, Anthony Davis, who is in his 30s, went to the bench and sat down with his head in his hands, showing signs of discomfort. After that, the Lakers’ star player was taken to the locker room and did not participate in the game again.
According to Chris Haynes from TNT, Anthony Davis was taken from the locker room in a wheelchair for further evaluation. After the game, Los Angeles coach Darwin Hamm informed Haynes that Davis was doing well.
With Davis hurt during the play, Davis’ teammate D’Angelo Russell attempted a layup while driving toward the basket. At the same time, Anthony Davis was trying to block Kevon Looney, who inadvertently hit the Lakers’ star player on the side of his head.
One Twitter user said, “Sources tell ESPN Anthony Davis may not return for Game 6 following a minor injury.”
Rewrite in another way.
“Darwin Ham on Anthony Davis: “He took a shot to the head. Looks like he’s doing really well already. It is there and it is in its position now. Added one more.
A third person tweeted his disbelief, saying that it was outrageous that Kevon Looney didn’t receive any sort of punishment for carelessly rolling his elbow like he wasn’t a trained athlete. He expressed that there was no call for a flagrant or foul, nor was there any indication of a suspension. The person referred to a previous incident where Looney blackened Sabonis’ eye during the previous series, and concluded by describing him as “goofy”.
In a post-game interview with TNT, Golden State Warriors star player Steph Curry expressed his belief that the Lakers were under pressure to defend their home court. He mentioned that during the game the Warriors were under pressure to keep themselves in the competition as they were in danger of being eliminated, but now the situation had changed.
The sixth game of the series is set to take place on Friday at 7PM at the Crypto Arena in Los Angeles. If the Golden State Warriors manage to win this game, they will be bound for a Game 7, which will take place on Sunday at 12:30PM ET in San Francisco.
