The Suns are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Lakers are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games and 6-13-1 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The under is 4-0-1 in Suns last 5 overall. The under is 5-0-1 in Lakers last 6 overall. The Suns are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Lakers should put together a better effort at home and LeBron is always another animal when he's facing elimination. The Lakers aren't going down without a fight. However, there's still questions with the status of Anthony Davis, and even if he plays, I'm not sure how effective he'll be. The Phoenix Suns are a young, confident bunch that smells blood in the water, and it looks like CP3 is getting healthy. If AD can't play or isn't effective if he does play, the Suns should win this game. Give me the free bucket.
