LA Lakers, Kobe Bryant Beat Phoenix Suns 124-112, Game 2

LA Lakers, Kobe Bryant Too Strong for Phoenix Suns in Game 2 – Los Angeles Lakers beat Phoenix Suns 124 – 112

The Los Angeles Lakers have topped the Phoenix Suns in game 2 of the Western Conference Finals. Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers proved to be too strong for Steve Nash, Grant Hill, and the Phoenix Suns.

Even though there were moments where the Phoenix Suns looked like they could topple the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 2 at the Staples Center, ultimately the Lakers were too strong.

The Phoenix Suns were playing sloppy, taking forced shots from the perimeter and in my opinion, just over powered and outplayed by the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Los Angeles Lakers are proving that they have too many weapons to be stopped by a team like the Phoenix Suns. And even if players like Andrew Bynum aren’t 100% and only grab four points and four rebounds, the Lakers are still too strong for the Phoenix Suns to contend with.  The Los Angeles Lakers have Lamar Odom who poses just as much of a match up challenge with his ability to play every position and dominate inside and out. Odom earned a career playoff high 19 rebounds to go with his 19 points in Game 1.

The good news for the Los Angeles Lakers is that Kobe Bryant signed a contract extension.  Kobe Bryant signed a contract extension with the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday. The contract extension should also end rumors that he might try to leave the Lakers to go team up with a superstar in another city.

From the looks of Game 2, I’m going to predict that we’ll see the Los Angeles Lakers sweep the Phoenix Suns and meet up with the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals.

What do you think?

Do you think we’ll see the Los Angeles Lakers sweep the Phoenix Suns?

And if the Lakers do meet up with the Boston Celtics in the final, who do you think will come away with the NBA championship?
