The Lakers and the Suns are two teams that we think are very similar, and we think that that is going to bite the men in purple and gold in the backside. Both teams fired their head coaches not all that long into the season, and both are still trying to come up with a new identity. The Lakers played last night in a grueling game against the New Orleans Hornets, and that might prove to ultimately hurt as well. Remember that all of these wins that LA has had have come at home, and on the road, the club has been absolutely horrendous this year at 6-13-1 ATS. The home team has won six straight and covered five straight in this series, and that includes earlier this year when the Lakers won at Staples Center 114-102, more or less before the poo hit the fan in Tinseltown and the team started to go in the tank. There really is little justification with recent form to take the Suns on Wednesday night, but after a long stretch of four games in five days, the back to back off days will really help get their heads screwed back on straight again. This is an upset waiting to happen.
