02-03 News Today, the Lakers beat the Pacers 112-111 in an away game and won two consecutive victories
After the game, Lakers forward Anthony Davis was interviewed.
When asked when he learned he was dropped from the All-Star bench, Davis said: “Mike Trudell (Lakers sideline reporter) told me after the game. So, I didn’t find out until the end of the game.
The thing. But, like I said, that’s the way it is. I’m playing for the championship, not for the All-Star Game. Of course, if it happens, that’s fine, it’s always an honor.
But, like I said, my wife is so happy, she’s already texting me, ‘So where are we going on vacation?’ So, it’s okay.”
In this game, Davis played 34 minutes and scored 31 points, 14 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks and 1 steal on 13 of 27 shots.
