The model has considered that Los Angeles forward LeBron James (questionable) is the driving force for this team. James continues to orchestrate the offense at a high clip while taking efficient shots. The 19-time All-Star is averaging a team-high 24.4 points with 7.6 rebounds, and 6.4 assists per game. On Nov. 30 against the Thunder, James had 21 points, 12 rebounds, and six assists.
The model also knows Phoenix forward Kevin Durant is one of the best scorers ever. Durant has the skillset to get a bucket from all three levels on the floor and owns a silky smooth jumper. The 13-time All-Star is third in the NBA in points (31) with 6.4 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game. In his last outing, Durant totaled 27 points and five assists.
The model has simulated Suns vs. Lakers 10,000 times and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning Under on the point total, and it also says one side of the spread hits over 50% of the time!
