Los Angeles Lakers Form & Team News


Los Angeles’ chances of advancing took a huge blow in Game 4 as they lost Anthony Davis.

Davis had a quiet night as the Lakers dropped Game 1 in Phoenix, 99-90.

He burst into life in Games 2 & 3 though, following up a 34-point, 10-rebound game with 34 more points and 11 more rebounds.

Those two displays inspired LA to 109-102 and 109-95 wins over the Suns.

Davis suffered a groin strain in Game 4 and the Lakers felt his absence as Phoenix won 100-92 at the Staples Center to level the series before heading home.

AD is listed day-to-day for Game 5 but all reports suggest he will sit out Tuesday night’s game.

The Lakers could also be without Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who is questionable with a knee problem.

Phoenix Suns Form & Team News


Phoenix are back on level terms in the series following the big Game 4 victory in Los Angeles.

The Suns won 99-90 in Game 1 thanks to standout performances from Devin Booker (34 points) and Deandre Ayton (16 rebounds).

Booker (31 points) and Ayton (22 points, 10 rebounds) impressed again in Game 2 but could not prevent a 109-102 defeat.

The pair were then slowed by that tough LA defence as the Lakers took the third game, 109-95.

Booker struggled again for points in Game 4, but Ayton dominated in the paint with 17 rebounds and an all-round team effort was enough to lift Phoenix to a series-tying 100-92 win.

Chris Paul is poised to feature again for the Suns despite problems with his shoulder.

Abdel Nader will definitely sit this one out due to a knee injury he sustained back in March.
