Hard not to fade Phoenix right now. This team is not very good. They're 5-22 O.T.R. and they know how to get blown out. 7 of their last 10 losses have been by at least 10. The other losses were by 9,9, and 4. They were just destroyed by OKC twice, never mind the loss by 40 @ DET back in Nov. Come on now.
The Lakers I know are on alot of haters lists, but are in a great spot tonight to me. Off a decent 4-3 road trip (including a loss @ Phoenix) facing a SUNS team that has to be scratching their heads a bit. It's always easier to kick a man while he's down, and Phoenix is getting used to it. Look for Steve Nash to be much more productive than the last meeting in PHO.
The home team is 6-0 ATS last 6 meetings.
LAKERS -9, -110
