Anthony Davis achieved a rare triple-double in a commanding display during the Los Angeles Lakers' victory over the Charlotte Hornets on Monday night.


Davis notched an impressive 26 points, 15 rebounds, and 11 assists, marking his third career triple-double and second of the season. 

Notably, Davis surpassed Lakers icons LeBron James and Magic Johnson by becoming the first player in franchise history to achieve at least 25 points, 15 rebounds, and 10 assists on 75 percent shooting in a single game.

Despite Davis not being known for his playmaking abilities, this extraordinary feat showcased his versatility and dominance on the court. 
 The Lakers star, usually averaging 2.5 assists per game, demonstrated an unexpected proficiency in distributing the ball against the shorthanded Hornets. 

The achievement stands out even more given the historic players who have graced the Lakers' roster in the past, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, and Jerry West.


As the Lakers gear up for the approaching trade deadline on February 8, Davis's stellar performance adds momentum to the team's upward trajectory. 

While the specifics of potential roster changes remain uncertain, the Lakers seem poised for a shift in personnel as they prepare to face the Denver Nuggets in the aftermath of the deadline. (SOURCE: Clutch Points)
