Defending champions, the Lakers will not make the double. The Californian franchise took the door in the first round of the playoffs, dominated by the Suns. Devin Booker wasn’t there to joke.
It was the game not to lose, but the Lakers were dominated from start to finish. This Game 6 against the Suns started very badly with the injury of Anthony Davis, clearly in pain. A few moments later, Alex Caruso joined him in the infirmary. But no need for that for Devin Booker, who had an incredible first quarter.
22 points with a perfect 6/6 with three points, Booker took completely hot to quickly put the Suns in front. The Lakers attempted a comeback in the final quarter, but it was Chris Paul himself who was responsible for concluding with three huge possessions.

Talen Horton-Tucker tried to save the furniture in the final, but it was a 113-100 loss. The Angelinos are eliminated from the playoffs:

Jae Crowder finished the job with one last three points, and now the Suns are in the semi-finals. LeBron James will be going on vacation a little earlier than expected. However, fans will be particularly concerned after some signs of weakness.
Indeed, in the fourth quarter, the King asked to come out, clearly blunt. And if he tried to come back, he wasn’t himself. The age begins to take its effect, and the native of Akron will not be able to keep up with such a rhythm for a long time yet.
End clap for the Lakers, who will not see the rest of the playoffs. Deserved for the Suns, who were simply better, like Devin Booker and Chris Paul. Watch out for this team.
