LA Lakers vs Phoenix Suns Prediction
A sense of urgency is ahead of the Lakers, who have reached the threshold of elimination in the 1st round of the Playoff for the second consecutive defeat. As I assumed before match number 5, the injury of Anthony Davis will crucially affect the outcome of this series. The Lakers don't have a player who can score easy points under the hoop and from a half distance as "Eyebrow" did.
Phoenix won 115-85 in the previous match. Booker was phenomenal, scored shots for 3 points, had a lot of 2 + 1 situations. On the other hand, only LeBron James was solid with 24 points. For the Suns in match number 6, Chris Paul's injury may be a problem.
LA Lakers vs Phoenix Suns Betting Tips
It is difficult to predict the outcome of this match because a lot depends on whether Davis will play on one side and Chris Paul on the other, but I believe that this will be a series of 7 matches. LeBron James will have to take on a lot of responsibility and become a scorer because, without that, there is no success for the LA team. Contribution is also expected from Schroder and Kuzma, who woke up a bit in the previous match. My prediction is for the Lakers to win.
- The previous match at the Staples Center ended in a non-victory for the Suns 100-92.
- The max capacity of the hall in this match will be 8500 spectators.
- The Lakers are a slight favorite by betting odds at the moment.
