Davis provided six points (0-3 FG, 6-8 FT), seven rebounds, three blocks and two assists across 23 minutes in Wednesday's 125-121 loss to the Warriors in Game 5 of the series. Davis uncharacteristically came up empty from the field, but was able to cash in on his opportunities from the free-throw line to offer some offensive assistance off the bench. Any scoring contributions the Blazers get from Davis is often gravy, as he's primarily tasked with hitting the glass hard and offering energy off the bench. He was able to do that for much of the postseason, finishing the Blazers' 11-game playoff run with averages of 5.5 points, 6.8 boards, 1.3 assists and 0.6 blocks across 18.7 minutes per game.
Davis put up four points (2-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 12 rebounds, and four assist across 18 minutes in Sunday's 98-84 Game 4 win over the Clippers. Davis was one of three Blazers big men to finish with double-digit rebounds, as Portland dominated the glass in Game 4. While Davis shot poorly from the field and has yet to notch double-digit points in any of the Blazers' four postseason games to date, few players in the league attack the glass as hard as he does, and that skill will continue to earn him minutes in coach Terry Stotts' rotation.
Davis notched nine points (4-7 FG, 1-4 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 24 minutes during Wednesday's win versus the Nuggets. Coach Terry Stotts made a permanent change to the starting lineup on March 23, exchanging Noah Vonleh for Maurice Harkless, but Davis maintained roughly 21 minutes per game over the the final 11 outings of the season. Despite falling short of his 10th double-double of the season on each occasion, Davis' production was elevated during that stretch, as he averaged 7.3 points (on 64 percent shooting), 8.5 rebounds, 1.3 blocks, 1.2 assists, and 1.1 steals. Expect the utilitarian forward to put up much of the same once the Blazers open the playoffs Sunday against the Clippers in Los Angeles.
Davis was held to two points (1-3 FG), three rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block over 20 minutes in Tuesday's 115-107 win over the Kings. Even in modest amounts of court time like he received Tuesday, Davis is usually more active on the boards, but he ended up taking a backseat to starting power forward Maurice Harkless, who hauled in a career-high 16 rebounds. Harkless has three games of 10-plus rebounds in his last four games, but that generally hasn't resulted in lesser production for Davis, who had hauled in no fewer seven boards in any of his past 10 appearances before Tuesday.
Davis totaled 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds and two steals over 23 minutes in Thursday's 96-94 loss to the Clippers. The six-year veteran continues to serve as a key component of the Blazers' frontcourt rotation, and has now encouragingly tallied 20 minutes or more of playing time in four straight games. Davis has double-digit scoring efforts in three of those four games, and has also averaged a solid 8.6 rebounds over his last five contests.
