Home - Lakers Hold Off Suns in Game 2




  Lakers hold off Suns in Game 2


lakers vs sunsThe Lakers finished Game 2 strong against the Suns and have now taken a stranglehold in the Western Conference Finals with a 2-0 lead. The Suns really have to blame their defense for the losses allowing 128 and 124 points in the two games. Much like in Game 1 the Suns fell behind early, but kept hanging around and giving their fans hope. They trailed only 97-95 with 8:41 remaining after Louis Amundson hit two free throws, but the Lakers would outscore them 27-17 the rest of the way to win comfortably 124-112.

la lakers vs phoenix sunsThe Suns, trailing by 93-79 after the 3rd quarter of Game 1 pulled Steve Nash and refused to make any further defensive adjustments. In effect, they went all-in on Game 2. But the Lakers still dominated out of the gates in Game 2, leading by 36-24 after the 1st quarter. Kobe Bryant was contained better after his 40 point performance in Game 1, only scoring 21. However, he found whoever was open chipping in with 13 assists.

The Suns now head home with a tall order ahead of them, needing to win 4 of the next 5 games against the best team in the league over the past 3 years to make it to the NBA Finals. They’ll resume things Sunday night in Phoenix.
