In the Jan. 17 win over the New York Knicks, Bridges dropped a career-high 38 points, 12 rebounds, and five assists. He also knocked down five 3-pointers.
The model also knows Los Angeles forward Anthony Davis returned to the floor on Jan. 25 against the Brooklyn Nets. Davis provided the Lakers with a much-needed boost on both ends of the floor. The eight-time All-Star is averaging 23 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 2.2 blocks per game. Davis had a solid performance in his last outing against the Philadelphia 76ers.
