Video: Anthony Davis interviews Rajon Rondo after win over Thunder
Los Angeles Lakers superstar Anthony Davis was still in street clothes on Saturday, as his team handed the Oklahoma City Thunder a 15-point defeat, 110-125, at Chesapeake Energy Arena. With LeBron James also sitting out the ball game, the Lakers relied on Kyle Kuzma (36 points and seven rebounds) and Rajon Rondo (21 markers, 12 boards, and eight assists) to notch their eighth consecutive win.
Despite being unable to help his team on the floor due to a back injury he sustained against the New York Knicks last Thursday, Anthony Davis decided to be of use by assuming the role of a courtside reporter.
“The Brow” actually came prepared with some good questions for Rondo post-game, asking him about his mindset playing without the Lakers’ two best players.
Rajon Rondo quipped that he and Kuzma simply divided the 75 shots that were suddenly available, eliciting a smile from Davis.
“When Anthony Davis and LeBron James don’t play, what’s your mindset?” 😂

The Lakers, meanwhile, cooled off a red-hot Thunder team that has won four of its last five games. LA still holds the best record in the Western Conference at 32-7.
