The 2-4 Phoenix Suns are travelling to Los Angeles to take on the surprisingly impressive 3-3 Lakers at Staples Center this Sunday.
The Suns seem to have gotten things together after dropping their first four games of the 2016 season. They have since won two in a row, both in overtime. They won at New Orleans on Friday 112-111 in OT.
The Lakers have shown great strides of improvement under new coach and former Lakers player, Luke Walton. They have also won two in a row, including a shocking 117-97 drubbing of the Golden State Warriors on Friday.
At the beginning of the season, the Suns looked like a team in complete disarray as they lost their first four games. In two of those, they were completely outplayed and did not stand much of a chance, including 113-94 beatdown against the Sacramento Kings at home in the season opener.
They have won their last two and have a chance to continue the streak on Sunday in the Staples Center. However, they have lost six of their last nine road games.
The Phoenix Suns are averaging 105.3 points on 43.3 percent shooting and allowing 112.3 points on 45.2 percent shooting. They are shooting 28.7 percent from beyond the arc and 74.6 percent from the free throw line. On defense, the Suns are allowing 31.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 49.3 rebounds per game.
TJ Warren is averaging 21.7 points and 6.2 rebounds while Devin Booker is averaging 19.8 points and 2.2 assists. Eric Bledsoe is the third double-digit scorer and Brandon Knight is dishing 2.3 assists.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers have surprised many people already this year. They were expected to improve under Luke Walton and with the new young, talent, but no one expected them to look as composed and efficient as they have so far.
However, after winning the season opener against Houston 120-116, they did look like the Lakers of 2015 at times. They dropped three straight games after the opener, all on the road. They have since won two in a row and have yet to lose at Staples.
The Lakers are averaging 108.8 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 108.5 points on 46.9 percent shooting. They are shooting 30 percent from beyond the arc and 84.2 percent from the free throw line.
Defensively, they Lakers are allowing 27.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.2 rebounds per game.
Point guard D’Angelo Russell is averaging 16.7 points and 4.7 assists while Lou Williams is averaging 15.5 points and one rebound. Julius Randle is the third double-digit scorer and Jordan Clarkson is grabbing 2.3 rebounds.

Free Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA Prediction:
Phoenix seems to have gotten some things figured out in their last two wins. However, they needed overtime in both of those games and struggled mightily at times against teams that aren’t that good.
The Lakers are a team that is definitely trending in the right direction. Luke Walton knows exactly how to maximize the young talent that he has in a way that gives them a chance to be competitive.
