The Phoenix Suns and the Los Angeles Lakers collide in a pivotal Game 4 at the Stapes Center on Sunday afternoon.

The Phoenix Suns will be hoping to square up the series after getting routed by the Lakers in a tough 109-95 loss in Game 3 on Thursday. DeAndre Ayton has been on fire in this series and he continued his hot form with another 22 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks on 11 of 15 shooting, Devin Booker added 19 points and six assists while Cameron Payne chipped in with 15 points, six assists and four steals off the bench. As a team, the Suns shot 42 percent from the field and 11 of 29 from the 3-point line as they struggled against the size and defense of the Lakers early on, scoring just 12 points in a nightmare second quarter, before getting blown out in the third quarter as tempers flared.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers will be growing in confidence after suffocating the Suns in a dominant 109-95 win on Thursday. Anthony Davis dominated right from the tipoff to finish with 34 points and 11 rebounds on 11 of 22 shooting, LeBron James added 21 points with six rebounds and nine assists while Dennis Schroder chipped in with 20 points on six of 11 shooting. As a team, the Lakers shot 44 percent from the field and seven of 28 from the 3-point line which aren’t numbers that are going to jump off the page, but this win was all about their ability to use their size as they outrebounded the Suns by 51-35 while outscoring them by 58-38 in points in the paint.

Looking at the betting trends, the Suns are 1-4-1 ATS in their last six road games, 35-16-1 ATS in their last 52 games against a team with a winning record and 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight games overall. The Lakers are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games, 0-7 ATS in their last seven games following a win of more than 10 points and 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall.

Head to head, the under is 3-1-1 in the last five meetings overall and the Suns are 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings in Los Angeles.

The Suns will be feeling so disappointed about their loss on Thursday and you could see their frustrations boil over with all the late-game antics. The Lakers now have all the momentum in the series and they’re able to get so many quality looks in Game 3, so I don’t see why they won’t try the exact same tactics in this one. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is questionable for the Lakers while Chris Paul is questionable for the Suns. Even if Paul suits up for the Suns, we've already seen that he's far from 100 percent health, so I'm sticking with the Lakers to take care of business once again behind their defense and another big game from Davis.
