Anthony Davis was at his dominant best against the Suns, unloading for 35 points in just 29 minutes of court time to go along with six rebounds, three assists, three blocks, and two steals.

The Lakers claimed a 114-113 win, with a Quinn Cook floater giving Los Angeles the lead for good with 26.1 seconds on the clock. At that point, the reserves were on the floor, but the performance of Davis was a warning signal to the rest of the league, while LeBron James added 20 points in his 24 minutes of court time.

For Phoenix, who were without Chris Paul, Devin Booker led the way with 27 points.
