NBA Look Ahead; Tuesday, Dec 21, 9:00pm CT
We’ve got a great week of NBA games slated for this week, and it’ll get started on Tuesday. The NBA is ramping up in intensity as we near the midway point of the season.
Positioning in the Eastern and Western Conference is starting to settle out as well. Although the lines aren’t available just yet, we can get a good idea of the winners of these ones.
To start it off, we’ll be covering two of the best teams in the Western Conference. The Phoenix Suns will head to Los Angeles to take on the Lakers on Tuesday.
Western Conference Battle Phoenix Suns at Los Angeles Lakers
The Phoenix Suns are dominating the Western Conference right now. They’re just behind the Golden State Warriors right now but have won two games in a row. Phoenix has one of the best offenses in the NBA, averaging 111 points per game.
They’ll definitely need some help from their fourth-ranked defense when they face the Lakers. Los Angeles also has a great offense.
The Lakers, on average, score 110.5 points per game, ranking ninth in the NBA. However, the Lakers’ defense has been their shortcoming this season. They rank 25th in the NBA and allow 111.17 points per game.
Against the Suns’ offense, the Lakers will need to play much better defense. However, we’ll take the road team to win this one; give us the Phoenix Suns here.
