In fact, Phoenix attempted 42 free throws, 22 more than the Los Angeles did. PG Steve Nash had 17 PTS and a game high 15 assists with only 1 turnover in Game 3. Besides Stoudemire, the star of Game 3 was C Robin Lopez. Lopez made 8 of his 10 shots, scoring 20 crucial points for the Suns.

Los Angeles has struggled with Game 3's in the past, just like they did the other night in Phoenix. The Lakers appeared to have total control of their Western Conference Finals series with the Suns, but now the Suns are breathing life. The Lakers have lost SU 2 of the 3 games played in Phoenix this season, so they will need to respond tonight in Game 4. The health of C Andrew Bynum is a huge question mark for the Lakers, as he was limited to only 7 minutes in Game 3. As a result of his injury, Los Angeles had no answer for the Suns in the paint during Game 3. The Lakers need to improve their defense, as the Suns have increased their scoring total in each game this series. G Kobe Bryant played an incredible game 3, scoring 36 PTS and dishing out 11 assists. Bryant had team highs in PTS, rebounds, and assists, and was 1 rebound short of a triple double. F Pau Gasol and PG Derek Fisher combined for 41 PTS in Game 3, helping the Lakers stay competitive throughout. The Lakers are 67-28 SU and 41-51-3 ATS overall this season. Los Angeles is 26-21 SU and 21-25-1 ATS in road games this year. The Lakers are 11-9 ATS revenging a loss to an opponent this season.

The Lakers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600%. The Over is 7-0-1 in their last 8 games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game. projects the final score to be 108-105 in favor of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Under 221.5 is the Total of the Day!
