The Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns meet Sunday in NBA action at the PHX Arena.
The Los Angeles Lakers look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Los Angeles Lakers are averaging 112.4 points on 48.6 percent shooting and allowing 106.3 points on 45.5 percent shooting. LeBron James is averaging 25.8 points and 8.1 rebounds while Anthony Davis is averaging 22.5 points and three assists. Dennis Schroder is the third double-digit scorer and Montrezl Harrell is grabbing 6.4 rebounds. The Los Angeles Lakers are shooting 35.4 percent from beyond the arc and 74.9 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Lakers are allowing 35.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.4 rebounds per game.
The Phoenix Suns look for a statement win after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 114.2 points on 49 percent shooting and allowing 107.9 points on 46 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 25.1 points and 4.7 assists while Chris Paul is averaging 16 points and 4.6 rebounds. Deandre Ayton is the third double-digit scorer and Mikal Bridges is dishing 2.4 assists. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 38.7 percent from beyond the arc and 82.9 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 34.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.2 rebounds per game.
The Lakers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Suns are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 home games and 37-14 ATS in their last 51 games overall. The under is 9-4 in Lakers last 13 overall. The under is 5-1 in Suns last 6 Sunday games. The Lakers are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Phoenix and 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings.
The Los Angeles Lakers will now be without AD and LeBron until further notice and that seriously changes the whole feel of this team. It doesn't help the Lakers are on the end of a back to back here as well. The Phoenix Suns are not only winning their last five games by an average of 5.2 points, but they win at home by an average of 7.5 points and are 27-13 against the spread on the season. You're sitting on tons of profit if you've blindly backed the Suns dating back to the NBA bubble. I'll lay the chalk.
