After a series of unfortunate injuries, Lakers made it to the playoffs hoping to go all the way after all the odds were in their favor too. LeBron James and Anthony Davis back on the lineup after being sidelined for a major part of the regular season. But Phoenix Suns had other things planned and eliminated Lakers with a Game 6 win by 113-100. With a three-point barrage, Suns advanced to the second-round series of the Playoffs.
For LeBron James this knock would be hard to adjust to as it is the first time he has been knocked out of the opening round. Phoenix Suns have now set up a clash with Denver Nuggets in Round 2. At one point Suns enjoyed a 29 point lead and Lakers rallied to cut the lead down to 12 despite losing Anthony Davis within five minutes of the match. It would be interesting to watch Suns take on Jokcic next.
