Veteran Ed Davis has had a solid season in Portland. He’s an efficient player (shooting 60 percent this season, as he did last season) who plays within himself and is solid at both ends, and after trying to showcase his talents on a struggling Lakers team last season he has shown in Portland how he can be used to boost a good team with 20 quality minutes a night.
But he’s not going to put on a dunking exhibition.
He went up to throw down a huge one against the Spurs Thursday and…. that’s not how it worked out.
That’s also how the entire game went for Portland, who watched the Spurs pull away in the second half to go 34-0 at home this season.
