Tonight, the LA Lakers will be in their first back to back of the season, as they square off against the Phoenix Suns. After last night's game that ended on a depressing note, the team has to pick up the pieces and continue on. The Suns will be without PJ Tucker (suspension), while the Lakers will be without Nick Young (thumb surgery), Ryan Kelly (hamstring strain), Wayne Ellington (concussion), Steve Nash (nerve damage) & Julius Randle (broken tibia). The Lakers, in what seems like a repeat of last season, are already down to 10 healthy bodies. For a more in depth summary of tonight's match up, check out the game preview: Lakers vs Suns Preview.
