Phoenix Suns vs Los Angeles Lakers: Storylines

The Phoenix Suns have heard all the noise. They know that they’re not favored to win this series despite having the second-best record in the league. That will give them extra motivation to silence their doubters and make it past the reigning champions.

LeBron James and Anthony Davis struggled with injuries for most of the season and their health will be the Los Angeles Lakers’ biggest concern throughout the playoffs. But if the Lakers are at full strength, they’ll be the team to beat in the Western Conference.
