Lakers vs Suns Prediction & Player Prop of the Game: Can LeBron and the Lakers steal one in Phoenix?

Sweatpants Jesus

The Los Angeles Lakers travel to the desert to take on the Phoenix Suns in a Western conference clash.

Keep reading for our GAME PREDICTION and the PROP OF THE GAME!


No AD…No Problem?

The Lakers have won 3 of their last 4 games, mostly on the play of LeBron James and Russell Westbrook, as superstar big man Anthony Davis has been ruled out with a foot injury, for possibly the next 4 weeks.

The Lakers are going to have to figure things out for the next month without the early MVP candidate and that starts tonight against the Suns.

LeBron James has picked up the slack, scoring 30+ in 4 straight games, and thats going to have to continue moving forward for the Lakers to continue to climb back into the West race.

The Suns are Finally Shining Again

The Suns hit an early season skid, dropping 5 straight games in a row before picking up a win 2 games ago.

They have now won 2 straight and are looking to put that stretch of losses behind them.

Devin Booker was sensational over the weekend, dropping 58 points and leading the Suns to a big win against the West-leading Pelicans.

Booker will be out for this one, though, so can the Suns keep the momentum going without their superstar?

In this battle fo two Western Conference foes, which team will come out on top?

Prediction

I find it tough to believe the Suns are so heavily favored here without Devin Booker.

Not having Anthony Davis is a blow to this Lakers team for sure but LeBron is very capable of picking up the slack and carrying this team when necessary.

He will do everything he can tonight to keep this game within striking distance, and help the Lakers cover the spread.

Best Bet

Lakers +9 (-110)


Prop of the Game

LeBron James o29.5 pts (-106)

As I mentioned, LeBron is going to have to it all tonight.

He has 30+ in 4 straight games, with and without AD, so he has already been scoring more than what we saw to start the season.

He also has 30+ in 4 of his last 6 against the Suns.

LeBron will show up tonight and do what he has done his entire career: whatever is necessary to compete and win.
