The Lakers will be on a back to back in this Thursday night nationally televised encounter with the Suns. LA was cruising with an 18 point fourth quarter lead over the New Orleans Hornets. Suddenly the Hornets began to whittle away on the lead and cut the Lakers lead to 102-99. Instead of limited minutes for the starters they were forced into action all the way to the final horn as the Lakers defeat New Orleans 111-105. After some pretty good defensive showings in wins against Utah and Oklahoma City where they allowed an average of 90 points the Lakers surrender a high point total to the Hornets. Despite a definite height and length advantage the Lakers allow 101 points a game and ranks amongst the bottom teams in the league. Pau Gasol has been demoted into a bench player and has seen his minutes decline heavily. Phoenix is 2-2 with Lindsey Hunter as head coach for the team. They have a road win at Sacramento and a 5 point win to the Clippers. Which followed were consecutive losses on the road to San Antonio by 9 points and Dallas by 15 points. Much like the Lakers the Suns are a poor defensive team this season. They are second to the bottom in the NBA in field goal and three point defense. In their past two losses they have given up an average of 109 points per game.
