Phoenix Suns vs Los Angeles Lakers. The NBA pick for this game is the Los Angeles Lakers. The Los Angeles Lakers and the Phoenix Suns covered the spread in five of their last ten matches. The Suns have the momentum even though they are playing on back-to-back nights. The Suns will likely be without TJ Warren again and it won’t be a surprise if they rested a few players given that they are locked into the fourth spot in the Western Conference.
