Anthony Davis has been a force on defense for the Los Angeles Lakers, oftentimes saving Russell Westbrook, who can get a bit too careless.

That holds true off the court.

Friday is Westbrook’s 33rd birthday. His Lakers teammates, coaches, and staff presented him with a cake at practice. As we can see in Kendrick Nunn’s Instagram story, Westbrook was about to blow out the candles when Davis protected the cake from Westbrook’s germs — as if an opposing player was attacking the rim with Westbrookian abandon.
