Phoenix Suns vs Los Angeles Lakers Preview & Betting Tips
No matter how great the Phoenix Suns have been this season, I think the bookmakers have underestimated the LA Lakers in this series. The LA Lakers have a completely healthy team before the start of this playoff series. The great news for Frank Vogel's team is the return of LeBron James to the team after a minor injury. It should be borne in mind that the teams in which LeBron James has played so far have a record of 14-0 in the first round.
In addition to LeBron James, the Lakers have another great player, Anthony Davis, and he will play a big role in this clash. The biggest concern for Phoenix will be how they will defend the wings in the playoffs. The Lakers and Suns have played three games this season, and LeBron James played only one of those three, where he was dominant throughout the game with 38 points scored. Also, in the last meeting of this season, Anthony Davis scored an incredible 42 points in their team's victory over Phoenix (123-110).
We all know that the Phoenix Suns are a newly formed team this season, and such teams usually take years to form into hot candidates for the NBA trophy. Everything here is crystal clear. I think the Phoenix Suns have no answer for LeBron James and Anthony Davis, and I hope the Lakers start this series in a great way with a win in the first game.
- The Phoenix Suns finished the regular season in 2nd place in the West with 51-21.
- Phoenix Suns will not be able to count on A. Nader and C. Johnson, who are injured, while D. Ayton and J. Crowder are questionable.
- The LA Lakers have been looking great lately, having won each of the previous 6 games.
- Coach Frank Vogel will have all his key players at his disposal before this clash.
