Series: Lakers-2, Suns-1
Finally, we have some competitiveness in the conference finals. For a second there it looked like we were gonna have a sweep on both sides. Amare Stoudemire was huge in this game with 42 points and 11 rebounds. Robin Lopez played a very nice game as well, with 20 points. One thing that hurt the Lakers was their inability to shoot as well as they did in the first two games. As a team, they shot 9-32 from three. Could it have been the Suns use of the zone D? Should be interesting to see how the Lakers adjust in game 4. I, for one, am just glad we don’t have to see sweeps in the East AND West.
