The Phoenix Suns are one of the worst teams in the NBA this year. The Suns are currently, 18 games under .500 this season. The team has no veteran leadership, and are one of the youngest teams in the NBA. The Lakers are similar to the Suns, only their current roster is much better than Phoenix. Look for a glimpse into the future of the NBA in this game.
The last time the Suns and Lakers took the court against each other, was earlier in the season. The two have faced each other three times, with the Lakers winning two of three.
The Phoenix Suns are one of the worst teams in the NBA this year. Phoenix is clearly in tank mode. The Suns are 9-17 on the road this season and 1-4 over their last five games. Phoenix could also be without leading scorer, Devin Booker. Booker is out with a hip injury.
Without Booker in the lineup tonight, the Suns are going to rely heavily on TJ Warren. Warren is averaging 19.5 points per game this season. If Warren is having a bad night, the Suns have no one else to get them buckets. Eric Bledose was traded earlier in the year, and Greg Monroe did not work well in Phoenix.
The Suns have drooped two in a row, and most recently lost to the Charlotte Hornets, 115-110. Phoenix shot 53.2 percent from the floor and 51.7 percent from three, and still lost at home by five. Turnovers could have been the issue. Phoenix had 19 in the loss.
Aside from their terrible home record, the Suns are allowing 112.2 points per game this year. Good enough to rank the Suns 30th in points allowed this season. Phoenix is going to struggle to stop teams the rest of the season. This could be a long night in L.A. for the Suns.
If Devin Booker is out for an extended period, the Suns will turn into the worst team in the NBA this year. The defense is terrible, and offense is worse.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers are a bad NBA team this season. The Lakers are currently 10 games under .500 this year, and have no chance at making the playoffs this season. The West is loaded. Even if the Lakers were in the Eastern Conference, the team would not be a playoff squad. Los Angeles has a lot of young talent. It’s just a matter of when they can pull it all together.
Lonzo Ball is going to be a good NBA point guard. Brandon Ingram is showing glimpses of being a good player, but being a go to guy offensively, not so much. Kyle Kuzma is the guy who should be looked upon as the first option. The rookie from Utah is averaging 15.7 points per game this year. He is also grabbing 5.7 rebounds and has made 21 starts this season for the Lakers.
The Lakers have beaten Phoenix twice this season, but lost their only home game to the Suns by nine points. Devin Booker had 33 points. The Lakers are allowing 110 points per game this year. Almost as bad as Phoenix is this season. Look for the Lakers to play well at home against the Suns.
