Live NBA: Phoenix @ LA Lakers
Sunday 2nd December 8:30pm
Key battle – DeAndre Ayton vs Rajan Rondo. Ayton, one of the best rookies in the NBA this season, is averaging 16.4 points and 10.4 rebounds per game. The Lakers, meanwhile, have spoken of “managing” LeBron James’ influence so could ask Rondo, an up-and-coming talent, to assume seniority.

Numbers game – 21 games into the season, Phoenix (4-17) are suffering their worst-ever start.
One to watch (Suns) – Devin Booker has been Phoenix’s most assured option in offence. He sits just outside the top 10 assist-makers in the league so far.
One to watch (Lakers) – LeBron James will always have all eyes on him. Last time out, he top scored with 38 points and might fancy topping that tally against the struggling Suns.
