Mike Trudell

A nice basket cut by Ed Davis got him a layup, and cut the Clips' lead to 31-22 after 12 minutes. Lin had 7, Hill 6, Kobe 5, and Griffin 11.

Eric Pincus

Ed Davis has actually played more MPG than starters Carlos Boozer and Jordan HIll - looks like a steal thus far latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Eric Pincus

Ed Davis a bright spot for Lakers early in season latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Gary Lee

Through eight preseason games and two regular season games, I'd like to see Ed Davis replace Jordan Hill in the starting lineup. #Analysis

Mike Trudell

Final: Suns 119, Lakers 99. Kobe had 31 points, Ed Davis 14/9/3 off the bench. Suns were 16 of 32 from 3, shot 55% overall.

Jinno Rufino

Ed Davis has been nice the past 2 games. Looking forward to what he can do for the season.

Mike Trudell

Forced to find a bright spot on a rough night: Ed Davis has 11 points, 8 boards, 3 assists, 2 steals and a block in 29 bench minutes.

Alex Kennedy

Kobe Bryant has 31 points on 25 shots. Yikes. He's not getting much help though - the next highest Laker scorer has 9 (Wes Johnson/Ed Davis)

Mike Trudell

Kobe made 11 FG's, but no other Laker has more than the 4 of Ed Davis or 3 of Wayne Ellington. The other 4 starters had 2 FGM apiece.

Mark Medina

Lakers down 98-74 after third Q to Suns. Kobe good. Ed Davis good. Everything else bad

Gary Lee

PLEASE DON’T BE HURT, ED DAVIS. WE CAN’T TAKE THIS ANYMORE.

Bill Oram

Ed Davis is doing a little bit of everything tonight: In 12 mins he has 7 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and a steal.

Mike Trudell

To emphasize once again: Ed Davis has been really good. Just drew a PF on PHX working the O glass. He has 7P, 3R, 2A in his 11 min.

Dave McMenamin

Ed Davis is making less money than every player on the Lakers roster other than Sacre and Clarkson this season. Looks like a steal so far.

Eric Pincus

Ed Davis can catch a pass, can finish a play at the basket and block shots - that's not entirely common

Mike Trudell

Ed Davis, again, scoring at the rim. He's 3 for 4 off the bench, this time finishing in transition to get LAL within 4 at 38-34.

Paul Coro

The #Suns bench has allowed a 13-1 run with sparks from Lakers reserves Ed Davis and Wayne Ellington. PHX 34-28. #SunsVsLakers

Mike Trudell

It's a 13-1 LAL run here capped by a Hill J, Wayne Ellington's B2B jumpers, and 2 Ed Davis hoops. Suns lead cut to 6 at 34-28.

Gary Lee

If Mark Madsen could play, he’d be the second best big man behind Ed Davis.

Mike Trudell

Ed Davis has 5 points, 3 boards and an assist in 5 minutes. He's been a bright spot in a tough start to the season.

Mike Trudell

An Ed Davis put-back and Boozer jumper were just LAL's 5th and 6th FG's, as they narrowly close the gap to 33-19 after 1 Q in PHX.

Mike Trudell

Expect Ed Davis to get a lot of minutes for LAL, as he can play both the 4 and 5. W/Randle out, Robert Sacre will see some run at the 5 too.

Mark Medina

With Julius Randle out, Byron Scott said Ed Davis will play more minutes at backup 4. As a result, Sacre could get more time at backup 5

Arash Markazi

The fourth quarter starts with Ronnie Price, Jordan Clarkson, Xavier Henry, Julius Randle and Ed Davis on the floor for the Lakers.

Mark Medina

Does Ed Davis have springs in his shoes?

Jinno Rufino

Something tells me, Ed Davis will be my fav big this season. #EverybodyUp #NBAonBTV #HoopJunkies

Sean Highkin

The Lakers' best player this season might be Ed Davis.

Jinno Rufino

Liking Ed Davis' activity in the first half. #everybodayup #NBAonBTV #Hoopjunkies

Gary Lee

15 minutes into the season opener and Ed Davis needs to start. There’s my #analysis for the night.

Mike Trudell

Two straight buckets from Ed Davis backed up Julius Randle’s baseline J to make it 36-25 HOU. Johnson returns w/his 2 PF’s.

Jabari Davis

Ed Davis may have surprised Dwight with that quick first step and drive (sure surprised me). Followed it up w/another bucket. 36-25 Rockets

Jinno Rufino

Ok Ed Davis.... swooping lay up cuts lead to 36-25. 9:13 left. #everybodayup #NBAonBTV #Hoopjunkies

Eric Pincus

Ed Davis back-to-back scores - Lakers waking a little it would seem - down 11

Kamenetzky Brothers

Fun facts about Ed Davis. He likes "going to different restaurants around the city." First NBA car: 2009 Range Rover. BK

Jinno Rufino

Like I said Ed Davis making his presence felt.

Alex Kennedy

Great block by Ed Davis. As I've said before, he was a steal this past offseason. Can't believe he didn't more money: basketballinsiders.com/ed-davis-excit…

Arash Markazi

Current Lakers lineup: Ronnie Price, Jordan Clarkson, Xavier Henry, Julius Randle and Ed Davis.

Mike Trudell

Julius Randle and Ed Davis check in here, flanking Price and Clarkson. Also in: Xavier Henry, who missed the whole preseason.

Bill Oram

Surprise: Xavier Henry actually playing. Checks in with Randle and Ed Davis at 3:20 mark.

Ryan Wolstat

The NBA’s biggest off-season bargain, Ed Davis, hit 27-of-37 shot attempts for Lakers this pre-season (73%)

Ryan Ward

Ed Davis continues to shine with more time on the floor. 13 points, 10 boards and four assists. 21 mins so far. #Lakers

Gary Lee

Antawn Jamison and James Worthy have as much chemistry as Jeremy Lin and Ed Davis, @TWCSportsNet.

Gary Lee

Ed Davis - 2, Kings - 0.

Arash Markazi

Kobe Bryant, Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill are out for the Lakers. Ronnie Price, Ed Davis and Robert Sacre will start.

Mike Bresnahan

Kobe, Boozer and Hill not playing tonight. Sacre and Ed Davis get the starts at C and PF vs. Sacramento.

Gary Lee

Yes, more minutes for Ed Davis and Julius Randle. RT @Mark Medina: Jordan Hill and Carlos Boozer are out.

Mark Medina

Byron Scott starting Robert Sacre and Ed Davis tonight. Randle is coming off the bench
