Phoenix vs. LA is always good to see but i think the Lakers got to much for the Suns to pick up a win, then again LA loss to Dallas, who also runs n' guns!
I hope Pau is still out when we play them. The window of hope will be bigger. Bynum is a young guy, and Amar'e could possibly out-experience him, at least on offense. With Pau back though, it would be hard because it's too much down low for us to be able to handle. The team will very likely be fired up to play the Lakers, but they're going to have to be on FIRE from the 3, hitting every pick and roll and rebounding decently to be able to win.
Hopefully we stay close and not get blown out. =/ Cant really ask for more. Though it's bound to happen. No team is perfect.
