Anthony Davis Alley Oop Vine Video: Pelicans Forward Throws Down Alley Oop From Klay Thompson

Anthony Davis threw down a big alley oop in the first half of the USA vs Brazil exhibition game in Chicago on Saturday night.

Davis was running in transition with Klay Thompson handling the ball. 

Davis cut toward the basket as Thompson dribbled several times, then threw the ball perfectly for Davis to just grab it over the outstretched hand of Leandro Barbosa, throwing it down with force.

Davis was tied as the leading scorer for Team USA in the first half, getting eight points off of 4-9 shooting, helping put them up 45-37 at the half.

Davis started the game and is expected to start throughout the FIBA World Cup at center for Team USA.

He may spend some time at power forward as well, if DeMarcus Cousins and/or Andre Drummond make the final roster and are on the court at the same time.

Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee, the other big men on the roster ahead of the final cuts, are smaller than Davis and play power forward if they’re on the court at the same time as him.

USA will make cuts sometime ahead of the World Cup, which starts on August 30.
