More often than not, teams with the best player usually win games especially when the teams are comparable. We're not that far off from the Suns without Bron and Lonzo and Booker is the best player on both teams by a pretty wide margin. Point is, we're probably going to lose tomorrow.

Suns are a better team without Booker....

With Booker, they will continue being the worst team in the west forever.

LeBron James back in full-contact drills but will miss 16th game
Quote:
LeBron James made incremental progress Saturday, participating in contact drills for the first time since suffering a groin strain more than a month ago, but he has been ruled out of the Los Angeles Lakers' game against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday.

The Suns are missing 3 starters. A loss in this one would be even worse than the Cavs or Knicks losses.

Yes, but you have to look at the bright side: it could be the loss that gets Walton fired...

Yeah but so are the Lakers. Lebron, Lonzo and likely Kuz.

Ailing Lakers hope to take advantage of struggling Suns

Quote:
The Los Angeles Lakers will try to avoid their longest losing streak of the season when they play the visiting Phoenix Suns on Sunday evening.

The Lakers (25-24) have lost three straight for the third time this season, and a loss to the Suns will drop them back to .500 for the first time since they were 6-6. The Los Angeles Lakers will try to avoid their longest losing streak of the season when they play the visiting Phoenix Suns on Sunday evening.

The Lakers (25-24) have lost three straight for the third time this season, and a loss to the Suns will drop them back to .500 for the first time since they were 6-6.

The Lakers are close to getting LeBron James back from a groin injury that has sidelined him since Christmas, but he won't play against the Suns.

James, who leads the Lakers in scoring (27.3) and rebounding (8.3), as is tied with Rajon Rondo for the lead in assists (7.1), practiced in full during a full-contact defensive session on Saturday, but coach Luke Walton told reporters he's remaining cautious with his star forward.

The Lakers are 5-10 since James was injured.

"He was a full participant in that, so it was good to see," Walton said. "He looked good. He's still really good at basketball, in case you guys were wondering."

Los Angeles might also be without second-leading scorer Kyle Kuzma, who has been bothered by a hip strain and has been held below his 19.1 scoring average the past two games.

Kuzma did not practice Saturday and is listed as questionable.

"I told him if he's moving like he was last game, I don't want him playing (Sunday), so we'll see how he looks," Walton said.

Kuzma said he plans to do everything possible to be ready, but that he has to listen to his body, too.

"I just don't like to sit out games, but it's a little give and take," Kuzma told the Los Angeles Times. "I'm a little hard-headed sometimes, but I've got to see what's right and what's wrong."

The Lakers are also without point guard Lonzo Ball, who missed the past two games with a sprained ankle that's expected to sideline him another three to five weeks.

The Suns have lost seven straight following their 132-95 loss to the Nuggets in Denver on Friday night, which opened a three-game road trip.

They're still a ways away from matching their season-long losing streak of 10 straight from Nov. 25 to Dec. 11, but the team's morale may have hit rock bottom.

Players held a 40-minute meeting after the loss in Denver.

"We're just going to keep everything in-house," Suns guard Jamal Crawford said. "We had a nice talk. That's it."

Phoenix small forward Josh Jackson told reporters that the problems seem to be repetitive.

"I feel like at any moment, each guy here, we all like each other enough and are comfortable with each other enough that any one guy can call somebody out just say what they think and how they feel," he said. "Definitely don't need to wait until after any game."

Unlike the Suns, the Lakers are still thick in the playoff hunt. They enter Sunday two games behind the Los Angeles Clippers for eighth place in the Western Conference.

"At the end of the day, every game is a must-win," Kuzma said. "We're fighting to be in the playoffs, fighting for seeding and the season's ticking down. We got less than 40 games right now and everything has to be serious."

What makes you think that since we've just lost to two teams with less wins than the Suns?

I don't feel confident at all, not after losses against garbage like the Knicks and Cavs.

The Suns are just another one of those (bleep) teams.

Come out sluggish and claw themselves back entire game, might or might not get back and win the game. We shall see. Yes, I’m pessimistic, this Lakers squad tend to have this effect.

Well, Clippers win so a win and we are solo on 9th place. Hearing the introductions in the OKC/MIL match:

"And in Center, the leading 3pt shooting center in the league..."
