Los Angeles Lakers

The defending champions have been resurgent lately, following injury returns for star players LeBron James and Anthony Davis, both pivotal in their recent successes. Despite a disappointing regular season that has seen the Los Angeles Lakers fall to the seventh seed in the NBA playoffs, the Lakers will go into the tournament knowing that they still have a good shot at the title, with the first obstacle, the Phoenix Suns, being formidable but not impossible.

Phoenix Suns

The Suns have been a bit of a surprising inclusion this season, as they have ended a decade-long playoff drought to return in style with the second seed. Veteran star Chris Paul has transformed the side into a slick end-to-end machine and will be looking forward to measuring himself against the likes of LeBron. The Suns ended the season on a strong note, just one win away from being table-toppers, but with a loss to the Lakers just over a week ago, could play mind games. The Suns have combined veteran and rookie offense and defense very well this season and will be looking to continue in the same vein against the Lakers.

The Match-up

Following difficulties emulating the grand victories of last season, the Lakers will be looking to pull off a historic first – no seventh-seeded team has ever won the NBA Finals. Then again, this isn’t a normal season, and, now more than ever, anything is possible.

Despite the difference in seeding, the game will likely be a very close one – the nominally seventh-seeded Lakers are a far more challenging proposition than they seemed a month ago. In fact, multiple teams have actively maneuvered to avoid facing them in the playoffs, saying it all for the Suns’ luck.

Arizona sports betting is currently not legally available in the state but will launch in time for the NFL season.
