The Phoenix Suns dropped the Game 2 of playoff series to Los Angeles Lakers after Lakers finished with 109-102 to tie the series to 1-1. Lakers shook off Sunday’s loss to lead the Game 2 at all times by a narrow margin. Suns suffered a huge blow with Chris Paul suffered a right shoulder injury in Game 1 and that though, was not enough to put him out of play but affected his performance and he ended with six points, 5 assists, and 3 rebounds.
While Cam Payne came off the bench to post 19 points and even helped tie the match in the fourth quarter at 86-86 with a three-pointer. Deandre Ayton did help Suns to a lead once but they could not hold on to it. The two teams would now take each other on for Game 3 on Thursday in Los Angeles.
