Game 5 Preview: Phoenix Suns vs Los Angeles Lakers

Sports Network | May 27, 2010

 

(Sports Network) - The Phoenix Suns climbed off the canvas to punch the Los Angles Lakers right in the mouth but if Alvin Gentry's club hopes to make it to the NBA Finals, they will have to find a way to win in Los Angeles.

The Suns take another swing tonight when they meet the Lakers in the pivotal Game 5 of the Western Conference finals.

After being totally outclassed in the first two games of the series in LA, Phoenix responded by taking two straight in the desert. The Suns built on a 42-point, 11-rebound effort from Amare Stoudemire in Game 3 and Channing Frye broke out of his shooting slump and scored 14 points on Tuesday, as the Suns used strong bench play to even the set with a 115-106 Game 4 win.
