LeBron James not happy after Game 5 loss

The Phoenix Suns returned home to Phoenix Suns Arena and they came to play, dismantling the Los Angeles Lakers, 115-85. The Suns now have taken a 3-2 lead in their best of seven series.

Early on Devin Booker was absolutely on fire. He scored 30 points on 13 of 23 shooting from the fields. He also grabbed 7 rebounds and dished out 5 assists. Booker is showing no fear against the defending Champs and it is rubbing off on his team.

“There’s nobody that’s scared of the moment,” Suns guard Booker said. “We’re a confident team.”

LeBron James scored 24 points on the night. However, he did not have anywhere near his best game by his standards. The Lakers did not play well as a whole. James voiced his displeasure with his team’s effort and his own.

“We got our ass kicked. It is that simple,” James said after losing consecutive first-round games for the first time in his 15-year career. “They did whatever they wanted to win this game.”

Other Suns players stepped up big in order to help the Suns earn a 30 point blowout victory.

  • Miles Bridges 13 points and 6 rebounds
  • Chris Paul scored 9 points, grabbed 4 rebounds and 6 assists
  • Cam Payne scored 16 points and 4 rebounds

Game 6 of this series is Thursday, 6/3 in Los Angeles at the Staples Center. Tip-off is at 10:30 pm Eastern/ 7:30 pm Eastern.

    Funny to see how quickly fans have bought in to the “he has no supporting cast” narrative that LeBron has been given when he’s not on his “A” game. Deja Vu.

    Lot of talent on that roster, without AD.
