The 2021 American Basketball League action will return to the Phoenix Suns Arena on Wednesday when the LA Lakers take on the Phoenix Suns in their Western Conference matchup. The series stands 2-2 tied at the moment after Chris Paul and men won Game 4, beating the Lakers 100-92. While Paul took the court, shrugging off a shoulder injury bothering him since Game 1, the Lakers also seemed to struggle in the absence of Anthony Davis for the second half of the contest.
A lot of how the action will unfold will depend on whether Anthony Davis will start for LA Lakers or not. This is because he has been the real game-changer for them especially in the games they won. However, if he is not able to take the court, Phoenix Suns will begin as the favourites. For Suns, Chris Paul will be the key player in this game and for Lakers, all eyes will once again rest on LeBron James, even more so if Davis is unable to start for them.
Probable Starting 5
Chris Paul, Devin Booker, Mikal Bridges, Jae Crowder, DeAndre Ayton
