709 LAKERS at 710 SUNS

Take: 710 SUNS -5.5

I’m reluctant to buy into the actual tanking talk, but I do think there’s substance to the thought that the Lakers aren’t exactly focused on winning right now.

There’s really nothing positive to say about the team at this time. The problems begin at the top with the apparent family feud that has been taking place. I can see a case being made that this stuff has a domino effect that impacts the performance of the players and their ability, or lack of same, to function as a unit. Whether that theory has any legs is debatable, but what isn’t is that this is a terrible team right now.

The Suns are definitely not tanking. Phoenix is playing with tremendous enthusiasm and I don’t see any reason that won’t be the case again tonight. My only holdup on adding this as an official play are a couple of injury notes on the Phoenix side. But if all hands are on deck, I will be laying the points with the Suns tonight.
