What to Know

After three games on the road, the Los Angeles Lakers are heading back home. Los Angeles and the Phoenix Suns will face off in a Pacific Division battle at 10 p.m. ET Tuesday at Staples Center. The Lakers haven’t won a matchup against Phoenix since May 27th, but they’ll be looking to end the drought.

Los Angeles was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Sunday as they fell 115-110 to the Chicago Bulls. A silver lining for Los Angeles was the play of small forward LeBron James, who posted a double-double on 31 points and 14 rebounds in addition to six assists.

Meanwhile, everything came up roses for Phoenix at home against the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday as the team secured a 137-106 win. The contest was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 69-47. The top scorer for the Suns was center JaVale McGee (19 points).

The Lakers are expected to lose this next one by 6.5. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 4-2 against the spread when expected to lose.

Los Angeles is now 16-15 while Phoenix sits at 24-5. Two defensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Los Angeles is fifth worst in the league in points allowed per game, with 111.3 on average. The Suns’ defense has more to brag about, as they they have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 43.60%, which places them third in the league. So the cards are definitely stacked in their favor.
