“Death, taxes, stinker after a good game” – Hilarious Anthony Davis memes erupt in wake of lackluster playoff performance against Warriors 

Anthony Davis had a poor game on Thursday against the Golden State Warriors. Davis was coming off one of his performances of the season that helped the LA Lakers secure a 1-0 lead. However, the Warriors made some adjustments to neutralize the Lakers forward to level the series at home.

Davis had 30 points, 23 rebounds, five assists and four blocks in the Lakers 117-112 win in Game 1. He dominated on both sides of the floor and was clearly the best player on the court.

However, things changed in Game 2, as Davis had an off night. He was limited to just 11 points and seven rebounds but still had three blocks. The Warriors made the necessary adjustments to get a 127-100 victory and even the series at 1-1.

Fans on social media were quick to take shots at Davis. They noticed how his work rate dropped off knowing that the LA Lakers got the homecourt advantage. NBA Memes on Twitter started off by saying:

“Some things are unavoidable. Death, taxes, Anthony Davis stinker after a good game.”

Here are some of the best memes on Davis’ bummer of a game against Golden State:

It was just a total disaster of a game, not just for Anthony Davis, but the entire LA Lakers roster. They were up in the first quarter before sagging off in the second, allowing Golden State to go on a run to end the half.

The Lakers should have made the adjustments and kept the game close, but the defending champions put on a show. They went on a crazy run led by Klay Thompson, who finished with 30 points and eight made 3-pointers.

Steph Curry was the Warriors’ main playmaker, with 12 assists to go along 20 points. Draymond Green, who did a wonderful job against Davis, contributed 11 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists.

Games 3 and 4 of the series moves to LA, so Lakers fans are hoping that Davis will have at least one good outing.

Anthony Davis was asked by reporters about his terrible performance in Game 2. Davis explained that the Golden State Warriors made some adjustments, but it all came down to him missing the shots he was making in Game 1.

“I took all the same shots I took in Game 1,” Davis said. “Just missed them. Elbow jumpers, pocket passes to the floater. Same exact looks. I didn’t shoot no shot that I didn’t shoot in Game 1.”

If AD remains consistent in being inconsistent, he’s expected to have a great game on Saturday at home in front of Lakers fans.
