While the Los Angeles Lakers continue to demonstrate why they're considered championship favorites with a 12-4 record, Anthony Davis admits he's playing below his standards.
"Right now, to be hard on myself, man, I think I suck right now," Davis said after finishing with 18 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists and 2 blocks in a road win at the Milwaukee Bucks. "I'm not making shots. I'm not making free throws. But I think tonight my aggressiveness, just being a [post-up threat] and getting to the paint, allowed guys to get open."
Davis tried to be more involved as a facilitator.
"My aggressiveness tonight," Davis said, "that's the only way I feel like I'm gonna get out of this funk or whatever that I'm in.
"I put a lot of pressure on myself to be a better basketball player every game, and that's what I'm gonna continue to do."
