Steve Nash Returns
Tonight Steve Nash is returning to the desert. The Lakers are going to visit the Suns. This year hasn't been great for the Lakers, with the additions of Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. To start off, I think that the Lakers will come out on top, even after playing the Hornets yesterday. My reasoning is that the Lakers are finally working with each other, and Kobe Bryant has 39 assists in 3 games. The Suns haven't been good ever since losing their top player, Steve Nash. For the Suns, Luis Scola averages 13.2 points and 6.4 boards. He was on the Rockets last year, and had a great season. Goran Dragic is averaging 14.2 points and 6.3 assists. The Suns don't have many scorers either, so it is also causing them a terrible season. On the other side of the court, the Lakers only problem is winning and working together. These problems look like they have been solved. Just last night, when Kobe was trapped, he accepted it and passed it off, leading to a basket. He used to just hold on to the ball, or throw up a wild shot. Kobe has 28.4 points, 5.3 assists, and 5.1 rebounds. His assists have gone up in the last three games, and that is why the Lakers are on a three game winning-streak. Steve Nash averages 11.5 points and 8 assists per game. Dwight Howard is averaging 16.7 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 2.5 rejections a game. Finally, Pau Gasol has 12.7 points,8 boards, and 1.3 blocks. I am predicting that this Lakers teams is going to have a turn-around season, and be one of the best teams in the Western Conference.
