Live chat: Lakers at Phoenix Suns

No Ron Artest, no problem? Well, that was the case against the Sacramento Kings on Saturday, but the Lakers shouldn't underestimate Phoenix.

The Lakers' lackadaisical Christmas Day performance illustrated that the purple and gold machine still needs some tinkering underneath its impressive 24-5 skin. It'll also be interesting to see if Andrew Bynum can make an impact tonight and keep his devotees on the bandwagon.
