Lakers-Chat: Lakers vs. Suns
The Lakers and Suns play again, but before you click below to join the chat, here are a few pre-game notes:
*The Lakers are 6-2 in their last eight games at US Airways Center.
*Kobe Bryant has dropped 48 points and 36 points, respectively in two games this season against Phoenix. There's no reason to expect Bryant can't duplicate a similar effort the third time around.
*Bryant became the ninth guard in NBA history to grab 6,000 rebounds.
This might be a bad omen for the Lakers. They also played Denver in consecutive games, winning the first and losing the second.
We'll discuss those issues and more below the jump
