Chris Paul still is battling a shoulder injury, and it's a huge factor in Phoenix's playoff hopes as he managed only 27 minutes on Thursday when the Suns lost 109-95, and Paul finished with only seven points. Anthony Davis appears to be recovered from his injuries as he poured in 34 points with 11 rebounds, and LeBron James added 21 points for the Lakers. The game went UNDER by seven points, and Los Angeles is 4-0-1 UNDER its past five games going back to the regular season. The halftime score in Game 3 was only 43-40, and Phoenix shot only 42.7% for the game. The Suns are just 2-5-1 ATS their last eight games overall and 1-4 ATS their last five as underdogs. This is a near must-win for the Suns, so go with the Lakers on the moneyline and the First-Half UNDER.
