Suns vs Lakers III - 17th is coming up!

 I can't wait for this game, after the Lakers took the 1st two game's the Suns have a chance to take one back in LA on Thursday night. A tragedy came upon the Lakers as Andrew "Bynumite" Bynum (Nickname made up by the lovely lakers fans on the CBS message boards) is out for 8 weeks with a injured left knee. With Bynum out the Lakers got outrebounded by the SuperSonics but came away with a OT victory. Hopefully the Suns can take advantage of the liabilty on offense that is Kwame Brown.

The key matchup IMO is Boris Diaw Vs Lamar Odom. Odom lead the team in rebounding and put up 7 assits, but did little of anything else which could mean that Odom is not to comfortable starting at the 4 with such a mediocre player like Brown at the 5. Hill is close to recovery but is still expected to miss another week or so. after missing the Utah game, Steve Nash and Shawn Marion came back to help beat the Millwaukee Bucks in Phoenix for the 20th consecutive time, 122-114, on Saturday night. So that's where the two teams pretty much are right now.
