What to Know

The Phoenix Suns are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 115.06 points per game in their game on Wednesday. Phoenix and the Los Angeles Lakers will face off in a Pacific Division battle at 10:30 p.m. ET at Staples Center. Phoenix isn't expected to win, but seeing as the odds didn't stop them last game, maybe the team has another upset up their sleeve.

The Suns didn't have too much breathing room in their contest with the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday, but they still walked away with a 122-116 win. The victory came about thanks to a strong surge after the first quarter to overcome a 38-19 deficit.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles wrapped up 2019 with a 108-95 win over the Dallas Mavericks. Los Angeles' PF Anthony Davis was one of the most active players for the squad as he had 23 points along with nine boards.

Their wins bumped Phoenix to 13-20 and Los Angeles to 26-7. We'll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when the Suns and the Lakers clash.
