Game 1

Lakers vs. Suns Showdown Predictions & Picks

From the Los Angeles Lakers, King Lebron James is about to visit one of the best teams of the current NBA campaign, the Phoenix Suns, at the Talking Stick Resort Arena.

Due to the bad start to the season, LB23 was about to be left out of the Playoffs, which hasn’t happened in a long time, but they managed to recover and beat the Golden State Warriors in the Play-in and advance to the postseason.

How do Lakers and Suns arrive?

The Phoenix Suns come to this game after qualifying in second place in the NBA Western Conference leaderboard, with a record of 51 wins and 21 losses, just 1 game behind the leader, the Utah Jazz. The Suns were not the favorite team to start this NBA season. Still, extraordinary teamwork led by the experienced Chris Paul helped them complete a fantastic season, almost making them conference leaders.

The Suns rely mainly on Paul, but Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton accompany him; they are responsible for the success of the team this season, which, for them, is a resounding success because they had 11 years without reaching the championship. Coincidentally, 11 years ago, they were defeated by the Lakers with a masterful performance by the great Kobe Bryant.

While the Los Angeles Lakers came to this game in bad shape, Lebron James’ injury in the season’s final stretch made it difficult for them to maintain a good rhythm, making them on the verge of being left out of the Play-inAnthony Davis tried to carry the team, but the team did not respond as he expected. The Lakers will try to repeat the feat of 11 years ago when they defeated the Suns 4-2, but this time they will not have the home advantage due to their 8th place position.

The last game between the two teams was earlier this month; Anthony Davis managed to score 42 points and dispense 5 assists to win against the SunsPhoenix does not have the recipe to stop Davis; now, we will see how the team’s tactical approach will be in these Playoffs with Lebron.

While it is true that the Lakers will have their star Lebron James for this Playoffs accompanied by the other All-Star Anthony Davis, the Phoenix Suns have had a very regular and very compact tournament in all aspects of the court. Lakers and Lebron have more experience in these instances, but the excellent form shown by Phoenix throughout the season makes us place the winner token for this first game of the Playoffs to the Phoenix Suns.
