Phoenix Suns Form & Team News


Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton led the charge as Phoenix began the series with a victory.

Booker put up 34 points and Ayton dominated the boards for 16 rebounds as the Suns won 99-90.

Booker (31 points) and Ayton (10 rebounds) shone again in Game 2 but could not prevent Phoenix from falling to a 109-102 defeat.

That became back-to-back defeats in their first outing at the Staples Center.

Ayton notched 11 rebounds to keep his good form going, but Booker (19 points) was kept in check as the Lakers won 109-95.

The big injury news is the fitness of Chris Paul, who featured in Game 3 but is dealing with a shoulder problem.

Paul is not listed on the injury report, but it is clear to see that he is not 100% and that is a massive blow for Phoenix.

Abdel Nader (knee) is the only name listed on the injury report at this time and he is ruled out.
