Both of these teams are widely expected to be top-notch Western Conference contenders at the end of the year. Phoenix is fresh off of a rough NBA Finals loss against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks. For the Lakers, they are out to prove that their new-look roster can compete.
For the Suns, they started their season with a disappointing 110-98 loss against the Nuggets. Mikal Bridges scored 16 points to lead the team, while Chris Paul scored 15 points and dished out 10 assists. Deandre Ayton chipped in 15 points in the loss as well.
On the other side of the court, the Lakers came up short in game one against the Warriors. LeBron James looked dominant with 34 points and 11 rebounds, while Anthony Davis scored 33 points and grabbed 11 rebounds himself. Russell Westbrook struggled mightily, shooting 4-for-13 and scoring just eight points.
These two teams are evenly matched and will be hungry for a win tonight. This should be a very entertaining game between two legitimate championship contenders.
