The Lakers are not easy to be soft, after all, 3-1 and 2-2 are completely different concepts. There were too many turnovers in the last game, 10 times in the first quarter, making them very passive. Davis was caught in a foul and only scored 15 points. "I have to behave better," Davis said. "It's the same on both ends of the offense and defense, to bring energy to the team."
Davis solved the problem of too many fouls today, but under strict precautions, it is still difficult to score, especially in the first half.
