“As Davis is slowly integrated into the rotation — coach Byron Scott said he doesn’t anticipate starting Davis on Tuesday against Golden State, and is hesitant to name when Davis will be the starter — his teammates are learning that he’s a point guard with exceptional court vision.” [Jodie Valade]

“Every day I step out there, I feel I have something to prove. That was one of the worst things I had to go through. Going undrafted was tough for me. I worked so hard and it didn’t happen for me.

“[Semih Erden] said he felt ‘rusty’ [in his debut against the Hornets] which was to be expected because it was his first appearance in a game since Feb. 22, when he was still a member of the Boston Celtics. Erden has been plagued by shoulder and groin injuries that aren’t going away.” [Jason Lloyd]
