As recently as last season in the bubble, any time that we came upon a situation like this — a game with the series on the line — you could feel pretty comfortable in assuming that you were going to get a 40 point triple-double out of LeBron James. When he wanted to take over, there was nothing that anyone was going to be able to do about it. We’ve seen him drag the carcass of terrible teams to the Finals before. But if Tuesday night’s loss is any indication, he may not have that kind of performance in his legs anymore.
The Lakers are coming off of an absolutely embarrassing performance in a Game 5 loss in Phoenix. They were down by more than 30 points in the first half. Not having Anthony Davis available has completely changed the tenor of this offense. For starters, other than Marc Gasol, no one on the Lakers has been able to make enough shots to create space for LeBron. As a result, the most physical player in the league has averaged just 3.4 free throws in the playoffs while shooting 7.6 threes per game. That’s not going to be enough to get it done.
I’m not expecting Davis to play tonight. If he does, there’s no chance that he is back at 100 percent. Even with a banged-up Chris Paul, this Phoenix team has proven themselves. They are better defensively than I expected them to be, and the resurgence of Cam Payne has helped make up for the lack of pop CP3 provides offensively. As uncomfortable as this is, I will be backing the Suns on the moneyline (+110) to go into LA and put the Lakers out of their misery.
