Phoenix Suns vs Los Angeles Lakers prediction

The Los Angeles Lakers are coming off a couple of wins and everybody is back on the bandwagon, not forgetting how bad this team has looked overall since winning the tournament. The Phoenix Suns are as healthy as they've been in a while with Durant, Booker, and Beal in the mix again. When the Suns and Lakers clashed a little over a month ago, the game was decided by 3 points. I don't trust the Lakers in the favorite role. Give me the free bucket with the Suns on the road.
