Ryan Ward

Jeremy Lin and Ed Davis have the best chemistry on the team so far. Always got a feel for where each other are on the floor. Great combo.

Paul Coro

Ed Davis just shimmied his shoulders at the Suns bench after a fastbreak dunk ... in a preseason game .. that the Lakers are trailing.

Eric Pincus

Ed Davis/Jeremy Lin chemistry is strong

Mark Medina

Julius Randle brought the ball up the floor & finished w/ a bank shot. Ed Davis told me at beginning of camp that Randle is next Lamar Odom

Ryan Ward

Jeremy Lin-Ed Davis connection hasn’t missed a beat. Potentially solid trio w/ Lin, Davis and Julius Randle out there. #Lakers

Jovan Buha

Jeremy Lin-Ed Davis pick-and-rolls have been a thing of beauty this preseason.

Eric Pincus

At 15-19 from the field - Ed Davis has the NBA's highest FG% for players with at least 19 attempts latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Mike Trudell

4 for 5 tonight in 14 min. RT @calder_h: Ed Davis is now shooting 15-19 this preseason and hasn't missed more than one shot in any game

Jovan Buha

Ed Davis is the Lakers' best big man, and I don't know if it's close.

Eric Pincus

Seeing something from an Ed Davis./Julius Randle pairing

Mike Trudell

Ed Davis is getting good looks in the paint, here taking advantage of a mismatch w/Steve Novak, and is 3 of 4 for 6 quick points.

Mike Trudell

Ed Davis in this half at backup 5 (Sacre got the minutes in the 1st half). Scott's playing both right now behind Hill.

Mike Trudell

Robert Sacre's the first one at backup center tonight. Byron Scott said he's going to play both Sacre and Ed Davis in that spot.

Eric Pincus

Byron Scott said he'll play Ed Davis exclusively as a five - for the foreseeable future

Gary Lee

If Jack Cooley was on the Lakers, he’d probably be their second best big man behind Ed Davis.

Gary Lee

If this was NBA 2K15, Ed Davis would have the Gatorade logo next to his name.

Mike Trudell

Danhtay Jones, upon whose ankle Kobe landed in Atlanta a few years ago, got swatted at the rim by Ed Davis at the end of the 1st.

Gary Lee

I already liked Ed Davis, but he just blocked Dahntay Jones’ dunk attempt. He did it for Kobe. Probably.

Eric Pincus

Byron Scott said he wants to see how well Ed Davis and Ryan Kelly fit together on the floor - Kelly possible Thurs - may be more likely Sun

Mark Medina

Ed Davis looking forward to a "fresh start" with Lakers bit.ly/1vrqdJq

Eric Pincus

Byron Scott called Jeremy Lin a game time decision for team's next - Clarkson unlikely to play - Ed Davis will get the backup center minutes

Arash Markazi

Ed Davis did not play tonight but Byron Scott said he was OK. He just wanted to give Robert Sacre more minutes. May reverse that next game.

Mike Trudell

Expect Ed Davis to get the bulk of the minutes at backup C on Thursday. Scott wanted Sacre to get some extra run tonight.

Mike Trudell

Ed Davis is healthy, for those asking. Scott just giving a look to Sacre/Tyler today. Davis impressed Scott considerably in 1st 2 games.

Mike Trudell

Robert Sacre got the 2nd unit nod at C alongside Julius Randle tonight, with Ed Davis still on the bench.

Alex Kennedy

I still can't believe the Lakers got Ed Davis on a two-year, $2 million deal. Here's my interview with Ed from July: basketballinsiders.com/ed-davis-excit…

Yannis Koutroupis

Lakers are onto something with Ed Davis at center. He makes a bigger difference there with his length and activity than he does at the four.

Mike Trudell

Ok, more Ed Davis + Julius Randle here. Was a fun pair in the 1st half (and on Monday vs Denver).

Mike Trudell

Six boards now, 4 offensive (3 tip outs). RT @SGVThang: @Mike Trudell Loving Ed Davis seems like he's always around the ball

Gary Lee

Midway through 2, Lakers still trail 48-38. Ed Davis has been a bright spot, though. 4 points and 6 rebounds. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Mark Medina

Ed Davis has carved a good niche thus far w/ Lakers on P&R, defense and attacking rim

Mike Trudell

Ed Davis has 4 points and 5 boards in 7 minutes. Julius Randle = 3 points and 2 boards in 5 minutes, the F's getting LAL w/in 6 at 39-33.

Mike Trudell

More Ed Davis, putting a spin move on Ognjen Kuzmic to convert his 2nd FG. As early as it is, Davis has looked very good.

Bill Oram

Ed Davis continues to look good. Has had a couple of really explosive moves in the post. #preseason

Mike Trudell

Ed Davis collected his own miss, went to a drop step move and converted to cut into GSW's 35-27 lead after the 1st Q.

Mike Bresnahan

Vets getting the nod before the kids tonight: Byron Scott puts Ed Davis, Ronnie Price into game before Randle, Clarkson.

Payal Doshi

Interesting to see Ed Davis in a Lakers jersey. #OffseasonChanges

Mike Trudell

First off the bench today will be Ed Davis, who was so good in limited minutes in the W over DEN on Monday.

Gary Lee

After practice, Byron Scott says Jeremy Lin and Ed Davis could be the first two Lakers off the bench via @TheeCoreyH. lakersnation.com/byron-scott-je…

Eric Pincus

Ed Davis made a strong case to be primary backup center to Jordan Hill - Sacre is bigger but Davis looked especially active and athletic

Jabari Davis

Third block of the night for Ed Davis. Might be undersized for the 5, but is a rim protector as a weakside defender.

Eric Pincus

Note: Ed Davis, really far from the basket with the ball = not the go to play for Lakers

Mike Trudell

More Ed Davis, this time with a swat at the rim, his third block of the game. LAL ball up 6, 1:33 left.

Chris Palmer

Ed Davis has 12 points on 6-7 FG in 10 min. Huge impact w/o needing the ball.

Mike Trudell

Lin’s 10th assist came on a pretty alley-oop that Ed Davis hammered home. Those two have been terrific together.

Mark Medina

Some end game highlights: Jeremy Lin running P&R with Ed Davis & throwing a lob. Sure Steve Nash & Amare Stoudemire aren't out there?

Mike Trudell

Ed Davis enters and immediately scores at the rim again. Scored his 5th hoop in his 8th minute on Lin’s 9th dime.

Mike Trudell

Ed Davis is set to check back in for the final 5:31. He was very good in the 2nd Q.

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors foolishly buried Ed Davis behind Bargnani even though he was far better player. Wonder how long it takes L.A. To see better than CB?
