Williams expressed Davis needs to be more involved on offense on a nightly basis to give New Orleans the best chance to win.
"Anthony (Davis) cannot be in a game and not touch the ball," Williams said after his meeting with players, per NOLA.com. "We have to have an effort to get him at least 20 shots every night. And that’s on me too. As much as I draw up plays for him, run the offense through him, the guys on the floor has to know it. When they don’t do it, I’ve got to make sure they get him the ball. Because he’s not a selfish player, he’s going to make the right plays. And our guys know that."
Davis is averaging 25.4 points per game, which trails only Lakers guard Kobe Bryant, who is averaging 26.4 points per game. Davis leads the NBA with 3.4 blocks per game.
Davis also picked up his eighth double-double of the season by grabbing 14 rebounds, but his scoring upside came to the forefront Saturday, attempting a season-high 23 shots but still managing to sink close to 70 percent of his attempts. He also managed two steals and one block in the win. Davis will look for a quality follow-up Tuesday against the Kings.
Davis went 7-17 from the field. He also managed to hit all four of his free throws. Davis was active on the boards as well, pulling down nine rebounds. He finished with two assists and two blocks.
He shot 11 of 19 from the field Tuesday, 5 of 6 from the line. Davis visits the Nuggets on Friday.
Through nine games, Davis is averaging 25.2 points, 11.7 rebounds and 4.0 blocks. The Pelicans next play Tuesday at Sacramento.
