Baynes has been on the receiving end of a few embarrassing highlight-reel plays of late, and this was another such play to add to the list. Some props to the big man however for at least challenging the shot and performing his duties of protecting the paint.
As for Anthony Davis, the 26-year-old is having a fantastic season helping the Western Conference-leading Purple and Gold with his usual all-around dominance on top of catching lobs and flushing them with authority.
