1-on-1 with Anthony Davis: AD is going to be in a Super Bowl ad with Serena Williams, Peyton Manning & Jimmy Butler - and that's just his plans for next weekend. Great conversation about happiness, the cost of trying to repeat, and the team he thinks is most in the Lakers' way: https://t.co/zqcnILdJtd
Since losing consecutive games to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Nets have won three straight games and are a season-high four games over .500 (12-8). They have scored at least 113 points in six of seven games since Harden's debut Jan. 16 with a 5-2 record.
The Lakers have hit their first rough patch of the season with back-to-back losses for the first time since August. They're the No. 3 seed in the West with a 14-6 record behind the Utah Jazz (14-4) and Los Angeles Clippers (14-5).
Davis is having another terrific season playing alongside LeBron James. The seven-time All-Star ranks second on the Lakers with 21.9 points per game on 52.2 percent shooting.
