Anthony Davis was throwing it down on New Zealand (VIDEO)

Sep 2, 2014, 4:13 PM EDT

New Zealand had no answer for Anthony Davis. Neither did Turkey or Finland, but on Tuesday it was the All Blacks turn to look helpless.

Like on this first-quarter alley-oop from Kyrie Irving to Davis.

Through three games Davis is averaging a team best 19 points a game on 65.2 percent shooting. He has been the best player on Team USA, arguably the best player in the tournament. The USA has a long way to go (two more group games in Bilbao before heading to the knockout stage, which starts in Barcelona), but Davis is looking like this tournament could help him break out in the public consciousness — and be a springboard to a huge season for the Pelicans.

By the 2016 Olympics, Davis will be leading Team USA and get mentioned in the same breath with LeBron James and Kevin Durant (if they go to Rio).

    Davis and Faried play the game the way its supposed to be played! Always hustling, never assuming a shot’s going in. Gotta love it.

    Wow, he really does look like Dhalsim. New Orleans should get the rights to the “Yoga Fire!” sound clip to play in the arena this season.
