The Los Angeles Lakers have to get the right lineup for the game against the Phoenix Suns. This game will be a rematch and Frank Vogel better get ready for that. The Suns eliminated his team in the first round of the preseason. You can bet that LeBron will do his best to win this one.
When it comes to the lineup, Vogel will use LeBron, Russell Westbrook, Kent Bazemore, Anthony Davis, and DeAndre Jordan. Is this the perfect lineup? Well, we are not really surprised. We knew that Vogel would go down the same lane.
Lakers still have a good lineup for the game vs Suns
Los Angeles needs every bit of talent to win this one because they really need to get the job done. The team is playing without Kendrick Nunn, Talen Horton-Tucker, and Trevor Ariza. THT got his new deal with the Lakers for a reason and he had to undergo a surgery to fix his thumb. Ariza came to LA to show the world that he was the best prospect back in the days, but he had an ankle surgery. The same goes to Nunn. He joined the Lakers to prove his point. Unfortunately, he will have to miss some time as he is dealing with bone bruise. He will miss a couple of weeks and doctors will re-evaluate him again. Wayne Ellington didn’t play in the season opener and he is out for the game against Phoenix due to a hamstring issue.
LA has too many holes on the roster but they still have LeBron, AD, and Westbrook. Of course, Shaquille O’Neal doesn’t believe that Westbrook will make an impact and even called him a “role player.” This is absolutely wrong because Broddie joined the Lakers to win his first ring. His performance in the season opener was bad and this was probably a disappointing surprise. But, there’s so much he can do, and Vogel will sure try to get the best of him.
Tonight is a big night for the Lakers and NBA analysts have already made some prediction. What’s your guess? Is LA winning this one?
