Sunday 13 March: NBA schedule
Lakers and Suns clash
The Los Angeles Lakers and their host Phoenix Suns each will be without a key member of their lineup when they play on Sunday night in what could be a first-round matchup in the NBA playoffs.
The Suns have dominated the first two games this season, getting 23 points and 14 assists from Chris Paul in a 115-105 win in Los Angeles on 22 October, then 19 points and 11 rebounds from Deandre Ayton in a 108-90 triumph on 21 December, also in L.A.
Anthony Davis scored 22 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for the Lakers in the first meeting. Davis didn’t play in the December game, when Russell Westbrook put up 22 points and 10 rebounds in defeat.
Neither Paul nor Davis will be available Sunday, but each team is hoping to have its standout back when the Lakers return to Phoenix on 5 April. Paul is less likely to be back by then. He broke his right thumb on 16 February, and his recovery period was estimated at a minimum of 6-8 weeks. Six weeks would have him ready on or around April 1 — four days before the Lakers come to town. Eight weeks would make him a question mark for the Suns’ playoff opener in mid-April.
Let’s take you through the full schedule for tonight’s NBA matchups.
