The Phoenix Suns picked up two consecutive wins against the Portland Trail Blazers and the Phoneix Suns. It should be Devin Booker led the team with 33 points and never missed a free throw doing 15-of-15 from the line. He also finished with seven assists and six rebounds. Kelly Oubre also had a great scoring night with 29 points while Ricky Rubio out directed Damian Lillard in the point guard position with 18 points, 13 assists and five rebounds. This was a good game for them to gain some momentum heading to LA.

Los Angeles Lakers Betting

The Lakers outdueled the Dallas Mavericks in their previous game as they won two straight already. LeBron James had an off-night in scoring just doing 3-of-10 from the field but he made it up with 13 assists and six rebounds. Other Laker players filled in the scoring load with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope coming off the bench with 19 points and Dwight Howard finishing with 15. Anthony Davis had an efficient scoring night doing 8-of-12 to tally 23 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists. Against a Phoenix Suns team, the Lakers are just too deep to handle. Davis alone will he a huge load to handle and they have to battle JaVale McGee and Howard in the paint.
