The NBA is back in action on Sunday as the Phoenix Suns will clash with the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center in L.A, California.
The Lakers are heading into this game after a solid win against the Mavericks at home with a score on 114-103.
On the other side, the Suns lost their last game as they were beaten by the Magic at home with a score of 99-85.
Phoenix Suns Form
The Suns are not having a good season so far. They have suffered 4 defeats in their last 4 games and it seems that the injuries complicated their form even more. The bright side for this season is that they managed to beat the Milwaukee Bucks – the best offensive team in the league so far.
Deandre Ayton was their best scorer in the loss against Orlando as he scored 19 points in the game.
On the offensive side of the game, the Suns are placed on the 29th spot in the league as they have an average score od 103.3 points per game. Phoenix has an average of 39.8 boards per game, combined with 23.3 assists per night.
On defence play, the Suns are placed on the 25th spot in the NBA as they are conceding an average of 113.4 points per game.
Los Angeles Lakers Form
The Lakers are playing well at home. They have won their last two home games in a row and were dominant against the Mavericks and the Pacers in those games. They will aim to keep the momentum and get three out of three.
LeBron was the main figure in the game against Dallas as he led the Lakers with 28 points to the victory.
On the offensive side of the game, the Lakers are placed on the 10th spot in the league as they have an average of 114.4 points per game. Their rebounds record is 46 boards per game and they have an average of 23.8 assists per game.
On the defensive side of the game, the Lakers are placed on the 19th spot in the league as they concede an average of 111.7 points per game.
LeBron is their main player as he has a solid record of 28.1 points per game. Also, Kyle Kuzma is improving as his record stands at 16.3 points per game.
The Suns are struggling this season and their overall record is not something that they should be proud of. After the defeat against Orlando, the Sun’s overall record this season stands at 4-18. On the other side, the Lakers took advantage of playing at home and this game will be another opportunity for them to win at home. They have LeBron as their leader and I expect another dominant game by him resulting with a solid Lakers win.
