The Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers square off tonight (May 19th) for game 2 of the NBA Western Conference Finals – The game is set for 9:00 PM EST at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The Lakers hold a 1-0 game lead in the best of seven Conference Championship, as they had a convincing 128-107 victory in game one on Monday night. The 21 point loss was the biggest loss the Suns had received in four months, and they are looking for a big rebound game to try and tie the series up at one win a piece heading back to Phoenix. In order for the Suns to have any chance at winning they must slow down Kobe Bryant, who had 21 3rd quarter points for a total of 40 on the night in his 35 minutes of playing time. The Suns haven’t lost back to back games since January 26th, but are in tough against the Lakers who have only lost 7 home games all season.

Suns vs Lakers Betting Predictions and Picks:
Spread Pick – The Los Angeles Lakers have won four of the past five meetings between these two teams, but are just 5-15-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last 21 games playing on 1 days rest. The Suns are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog, and 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss. The Suns last loss was a 9 point loss to Portland, which they bounced back with a 19 point win in the next game. Steve Nash and the Suns know how important this game means to having a shot at winning this series, and will come back today with a solid effort. Look for the Suns to compete tonight, and keep things very close. Bet the SUNS +7 at -104.
Game Total Pick – This is a tough one to call as it can go either way with these two teams – in their five meetings on the season the over is 3-2 with totals ranging from 210.5 up to 220.5. The over is 4-1 in both of their last 5 games. I am not big on this game total play tonight, but my pick would go with the trends again tonight. Bet the OVER 215.5 at -110.
