NBA decides not to discipline Anthony Davis after altercation with Crowder — LeBron Wire

While under normal circumstances, Anthony Davis likely would be suspended for a game, the NBA Finals are not at all a normal circumstance and the NBA has decided to go easy on Davis after his backhand slap of Miami’s Jae Crowder. The Los Angeles Lakers currently lead the Miami Heat 3-2 in the Finals.

Clay Ferraro of Miami’s News 10 got an official response from the NBA regarding the altercation between Davis and Crowder. According to the league, they reviewed the film of the game and decided that no further action was needed on their part, meaning no fines or suspension for Davis.https://widgets.thescore.com/embeds/d7e692d6-7228-4e21-b791-9d65f701db1c/57CA76541E2D01E6AE9F67156D818BAC

Now, the only problem for Davis is making sure his calf is feeling better going into Sunday’s Game 6. While Davis still had an incredible statistical game, Miami’s Jimmy Butler appeared to have a little bit of an easier time scoring when guarded by Davis. While LeBron had one of the best games of his playoff career in Game 5, the Lakers will need more from Davis and everyone else to closeout a gritty Heat squad.
