Title: Lakers’ Davis and James seek redemption against Denver Nuggets; Coach Ham aims to unlock Davis’ 3-point potential
Los Angeles Lakers’ star duo, Anthony Davis and LeBron James, are eagerly anticipating their upcoming matchup against the Denver Nuggets. Memories of their humbling playoff defeat in the 2020 season still fresh, Davis is eager to make a resounding statement and turn the tables on the Nuggets.
While the desire for victory burns within Davis and James, Lakers coach, Darvin Ham, has been working closely with Davis to add a new weapon to his offensive repertoire – a deadly 3-point shot. Ham is adamant that Davis should fire six shots from beyond the arc per game this season, determined to unlock the seven-time NBA All-Star’s potential in this area.
During the preseason, Davis showcased significant progress in his outside shooting. With a 50% success rate, sinking 3 out of 6 3-pointers attempted, Davis seems to be reaping the benefits of his offseason training with Lakers assistant coach Chris Jent. Jent’s guidance has undoubtedly played an instrumental role in refining Davis’ shooting technique.
The 6-foot-10 powerhouse has faced inconsistent performance from beyond the arc since the Lakers’ triumphant championship run in 2020. However, with the new season fast approaching, Davis is eager to put those struggles behind him and become a more versatile threat.
The Lakers organization recognizes the importance of increasing their efficiency from downtown, as evident in their low rankings in team 3-point percentages over the past three seasons. To address this deficiency, the team has placed a renewed emphasis on increasing their volume of 3-point attempts during training camp and preseason.
Coach Ham’s influence on Davis continues to be crucial in ensuring his confidence remains intact during the regular season. The coach’s unwavering support and encouragement have enabled Davis to strive for greatness in each game. Ham’s guidance will be pivotal in cementing Davis’ role as a reliable long-range shooter, opening up new opportunities for the Lakers’ offense and diversifying their scoring options.
As the Lakers prepare to write a new chapter in their interaction with the Denver Nuggets, Davis and James are both determined to rectify their previous misstep. With Davis’ improved 3-point shooting contributing to their offensive arsenal, the Lakers’ chances of exacting revenge and making a strong statement this season appear more promising.
