The Suns head to L.A. to face a rested Lakers team on Friday and then come back home to get a second shot at Kobe and friends.
The Phoenix Suns (12-18) have the privilege of playing their old nemesis, the Los Angeles Lakers (17-12) on both Friday on the road and Sunday at home. Oh joy. The two teams already played once this year with the Lakers beating the Suns on January 10th with Kobe Bryant dropping 48 points against a Phoenix team he admitted he still holds a grudge against from the 2006 and 2007 playoffs.
