Los Angeles Lakers vs Phoenix Suns (By: Umicuma)
It is hardly to imagine two worse NBA defensive teams at the moment, especially at the Western conference. Both of the rivals are easy to concede over 120 points per match recently, without any bigger effort to stop that. However, Los Angeles Lakers is still playoff contender, for the difference of Phoenix, which is at the bottom again. Despite negative results, team from Arizona should have some potential to play better and it is a matter of time, when this squad would get at least light improvement in the league.
They are facing Lakers tonight, which is without main star LeBron James for while. With Lonzo Ball out too, Lakers has left with Kuzma and Ingram to lead their play. Despite mainly Kuzma good performances, matches like against golden State, did show weakness of the team at the moment. Champion was on 110 points after three quarters, and could go easily over 140 - 150 at the finish, but Warriors slowed down in the finish. It was not much difference in the recent Minnesota defeat for Lakers.
Phoenix is having rookie center Ayton still under the question. With he in the team, they could make problems to Lakers with the play down at lower positions. Even if Ayton is not ready, one running and high scoring game here should not have big favorite. With good percentage from the front, side if Igor Kokoskov may be able to break losing streak+
