Let’s check the latest NBA picks, stats, injury reports, and NBA predictions. We’ve plenty of NBA expert picks for you to consider.

Suns Lose First Test

The Suns scored 124 points in their preseason opener, but they still managed to lose. They allowed 134 points in the loss to the Adelaide 36ers from the Australian NBL.

Just didn’t give them the respect that they deserve as a pro team,” Suns coach Monty Williams said. “It’s a great opportunity for us to learn“.

I thought we didn’t do a good job of reading the game. Once they made a few [threes] in the first quarter, I didn’t think we had an awareness that these guys would keep making shots.”

The Suns’ star players didn’t see too much game time, so it was a well-rounded performance and it holds them in good stead against the aging Lakers.

Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton, and Chris Paul are enough to make the Suns an NBA championship contender. Getting beaten by Dallas in the playoffs last season wasn’t expected by many, especially the sportsbook. However, they have enough in the tank to make a deep run and the +1000 odds are shortening every week.

Lake Show Tips Off

Expectations are tapered for the Lakers, who are +1800 to win. It all depends on how healthy LeBron James, Russell Westbrook and Anthony Davis are.

We’re not sure about the team dynamic, but the addition of Patrick Beverley should give them some toughness on defense.

Outside the top three players, the Lakers don’t have much offense. That’s a big concern, especially if Davis is injured yet again.

I think the biggest thing was everybody trying to be selfless and now everybody is being aggressive,” Davis said. “‘Russ, you get it, go.’ ‘Bron, you get it, go.’ I get it and go. Whoever. And that’s been very helpful for all of us.

And I think that’s been the biggest change that we wanted to see from us three so far is, whoever gets it, let’s be aggressive because it’s going to open up the floor for everybody else.

NBA betting markets have to give the Lakers respect because they’re good enough to win the title. Los Angeles was demolished by Sacramento 105-75 in Monday’s preseason opener.

Suns vs Lakers Head-to-Head

The Lakers have a 146-113 edge over Phoenix, but the Suns have won the last four and last six from seven.

Two of the last four games have been played in Los Angeles, but with this game being played in Las Vegas, it’s a neutral venue.
