Watch Lakers vs. Suns: How to live stream, TV channel, start time for Tuesday’s NBA game

Through 3 Quarters

The Phoenix Suns were expected to win this one, and they are just one quarter away from fulfilling that expectation. They have unwrapped a big 85-73 lead against the Los Angeles Lakers after three quarters.

Phoenix has enjoyed the tag-team combination of shooting guard Devin Booker and center Deandre Ayton. The former has shot 5-for-10 from beyond the arc and has recorded 21 points, six assists and nine boards, while the latter has posted a double-double on 17 points and 11 rebounds. This makes it four consecutive games in which Ayton has had at least ten rebounds.

Los Angeles has been led by small forward LeBron James, who so far has 27 points along with five rebounds. A double-double would be LBJ’s third in a row.
