    Come on, we were 12-3 in February and the Lakers are missing Anthony Davis. If we win, it won't be a shocker. It will be a good win against a good team, like a handful of other wins we've had in the last month. If they had Anthony Davis, then yes, you could put this in the "shocker" category. But they don't.

    Give the Suns some credit. They are among the best in the league at this point, alongside the Lakers. Not beneath them.

    I live outside the Valley but occasionally I read about posters attending a game. This would be a great opportunity to meet up.

    I really feel like the Suns should win this game, but it's going to come down to how we are shooting the 3 again I think.

    We certainly can't win if we get into another 3 quarter hole and expect to climb out in the 4th. The Lakers won't let us do that.

    Seems like the first time in a while that a LAL-Suns game had actual meaning. Pretty cool

    I am reluctant on this one. We usually have a bad game on TNT, and we face LeBron. I hope I am wrong!

    I agree. Even with Davis I wouldn’t put it down as a “shocker” anymore. Would I expect it? No. But it shouldn’t be a shock for this team to beat anyone. Now beating them in a 7 game series is another thing completely. That would shock me. But a single regular season game? Nah.

    Lebron is a bad matchup for us. So is Davis. It’s why the Lakers are a tough one for the suns.

    LA are -1.5, so no it won’t be an easy win. It would be a slight surprise if we win.

    I honestly don't think it's a surprise when the Suns beat anyone. They are a real, solid NBA team. All it takes is for one of the wings and one backup guard to have a good game while Booker, Paul, and to a lesser degree Ayton do what they do. If two of the three wings have good shooting night, the Suns are hard to beat. AD or no AD, I wouldn't be surprised if the Suns win. Sadly, I am no longer surprised when they lose a random game either.

    After we beat Milwaukee and Philly back to back it’s pretty clear we can beat anyone. Beat the Jazz by 11, too.
