The Los Angeles Lakers have not lost since winning the NBA title a few weeks ago. The yellow team has defeated the Phoenix Suns in their fourth preseason game, which, on the contrary, count their four preparation games due to losses. A basket by Quinn Cook 26 seconds from the end has given the Lakers victory by 114-113 in a game in which the Angelenos have rebuilt a very bad first quarter.

A 39-21 run for Phoenix in it has shot the Suns on the scoreboard. Hand in hand with a Devin Booker who, with 15 points in that opening quarter, has dislodged the yellow defense, the Lakers have been forced to put on their overalls from the second quarter. It was then that they began to slow down the production of the Suns’ guard, who despite this has been indisputably the best of his team with 27 points, five rebounds, and four assists.

Of course, recently the ‘laker’ machinery has begun to carburete. Anthony Davis (35 points, six rebounds, and three assists) and LeBron James (20 points, eight rebounds, and four assists) have been assuming command of the game for the Lakers to begin to hit the scoreboard. The figure of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who finished with 15 points, has also been key for the Lakers.

For his part, Marc Gasol has started as a starter to provide defensive work to his new team. With little prominence in the attack, since he only had three shots to the basket, Marc finished with 2 points (obtained from the free throw), three rebounds, four assists, and a block. Sant Boi’s, in fact, has been together with LeBron the leader in assists of his team, a sample of the role he will have to seek this season in Los Angeles.
