Anthony Davis Explodes for 50 in Season Opener



Have a night, Anthony Davis.  The injury-plagued Brow returned with authority, breaking the franchise record for points in a season-opener (26) in the first half.  He finished with an amazing 50 points, 16 rebounds, 7 steals, 5 assists and 4 blocks.  The only other player to score more than 50 on opening night?  Michael Jordan, no big deal.

Some of his best work from the night:

    In the 93-94 season opener Shaq scored 42 with 12 rebounds in 31 mins. AD stays healthy…he taken ova.

    I swear I saw on Twitter that Wilt Chamberlain and Elgin Baylor also scored at least 50 on the opening night.

    Love seeing one of my favorite cats tear it up!

    But I would call the last one a walk. I don’t understand how catching the ball and taking two giant steps without dribbling once is not a walk. I understand you are supposed to get two steps but shouldn’t you have to dribble once? I mean is that okay in the post? How fast do you need to be moving before you can take two steps without it being a walk?

    Sorry, not a knock on AD just the way the NBA enforces rules or lack thereof.

      It has to do with the pivot foot. Not sure what the rules officially say, but what you’re describing is legal, especially in the NBA. I was always told: “2 and a half steps towards the basket are allowed.”
