Anthony Davis led the Los Angeles Lakers to a remarkable 120-109 victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves with a historic performance that set new standards in the NBA.

On Sunday night, the 31-year-old power forward accomplished a feat never before seen in the league, amassing at least 25 points, 25 rebounds, five assists, five steals, and three blocks in a single matchup, showcasing his all-around game.

Davis notched 27 points in the game, but LeBron James outdid him slightly with 29 points as the Lakers tallied their 12th victory in their recent 17 outings.

Missing key players Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns, the Timberwolves struggled to contain Davis, who joined the elite company of just eight players since the 1982-83 season to achieve at least 25 points, 25 rebounds, and five assists in one game. A milestone Nikola Jokic reached the previous season.

Davis shared his thoughts, emphasizing the importance of enjoyment and confidence on the court.

“When we’re out there having fun, everybody’s confidence is high,” said Davis in quotes published by AP.

“When we’re talking trash to the other team, we’re holding each other accountable, and we’re just playing in the right way. We know what it takes. It’s about having consistency of playing that way each and every night.”
