119-115 defeat on the night for the Los Angeles Lakers In the pre-season contest with the Phoenix Suns.
For the gialloviola, however, the bad news comes even before the two-ball. Anthony Davis, in fact, was kept on precautionary rest for a back problem. The same problem that had already kept him in doubt for the previous match, the one with the Sacramento Kings, in which he then played 16 minutes producing an 11+11 double-double.
Nothing serious, at the moment, for Davis but certainly Los Angeles fans are not smiling seeing him already struggling with physical issues, after so many forfeits last season.
In Las Vegas, the Lakers were not satisfied with the 23 in 17 minutes of LeBron James nor Kendrick Nunn ’s 21. Russell Westbrook put up 12 with 4/12 from the field. On the other side Devin Booker and Chris Paul already in championship form (22 for the former, 13 and 10 assists for the latter) but to break the game there is Landry Shamet, author of 21 points that best describe the Suns ’ excellent bench impact.
