Phoenix at Los Angeles
Thursday 06/03 10:30 PM Eastern
1 unit on 1st ½ Total UNDER 101.5 -102 (risk 1 to return 1.98) RESULT: LOSS
Los Angeles is in dire straits, facing elimination and injured Anthony Davis may not even play. If he does, he won't be effective with a current groin injury in addition to knee problems. The Lakers have scored an average of only 88.5 points their last two games and only 36 points in the first half of Game 5. That won't change much in tonight's matchup as the Lakers haven't even reached the 110 mark in this series. The last three games have gone UNDER by an average of 11.7 points. The Suns' team defense was a huge factor on Tuesday as it clogged driving lanes and prevented easy baskets by the Lakers. Phoenix will continue to concentrate on those tactics from the start in tonight's matchup. Take the first half to stay UNDER.
