Now just .500 on the year, the Los Angeles Lakers are going to the league office with a gripe that they have.
After the Lakers lost to the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, coach Frank Vogel said that the team has been in contact with the league about the lack of free throws for Anthony Davis. The eight-time All-Star failed to get to the line a single time against Milwaukee.
“I think Anthony Davis getting zero free throw attempts is a little bit mind boggling,” said Vogel, per Dave McMenamin of ESPN. “And it’s something we’ve been communicating to the league about.”
Davis entered play Wednesday averaging 6.2 free throw attempts per game, slightly below his career average of 7.0. He also seemed to be particularly upset about a perceived foul by Giannis Antetokounmpo on a dunk that he had in the third quarter.
