Phoenix Suns vs Los Angeles Lakers: Storylines

The 2020-21 NBA runners-up will try to build from their fantastic run last season to push for the elusive ring again, regardless how unlikely it seems. The Phoenix Suns began the preseason losing to Sacramento Kings without Chris Paul on court.

On the other hand, the Los Angeles Lakers aim to get back to glory days after setting up an experienced, high-profile roster. Coach Frank Vogel warned that he wanted to be careful with using the vets in these friendlies but also intends that they see action before the season opener. The purple and gold didn't begin the preseason on the right foot, though, as they were beaten by the Brooklyn Nets at Staples Center.
