Anthony Davis plays through injuries as LeBron James praises his 'grit'

PHOENIX -- Anthony Davis had a wrap on his right shoulder before the game and tape around his ribs by the end of it, but neither setback stopped him from putting up 24 points and 12 rebounds in the Los Angeles Lakers' 123-115 win over the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.

"He wants to play," said LeBron James when asked about Davis after L.A. pushed its record to 8-2 to start the season. "He wants to play and we just have to pick it up.

"For him, when he's showing that grit when he's playing with injuries, there's no reason for any of us not to be out there as well.
