Davis missed his first five shots of the game before converting an offensive rebound with 3:26 left in the first quarter to end an 11-0 run by the Clippers but caught fire after making a three-point play and finishing off a fast-break with lay-up (even though he’d lost a shoe) in the final minutes of the first half.
