Prediction

Given the Lakers' powerful offense and the Suns' tendency to score over 117 points at home, we predict that the over of 239.5 points is the pick for this matchup. Both teams have the offensive firepower to put up big numbers, and their previous matchups have often been high-scoring affairs.

With Anthony Davis leading the Lakers' charge and Kevin Durant spearheading the Suns' offense, we expect a fast-paced game with plenty of scoring opportunities. Additionally, the absence of significant defensive anchors may contribute to the high-scoring nature of this matchup.
