Final Score: Suns blast Lakers, 137-101 ALL THE DUNKS AND BLOCKS

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Phoenix Suns Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight, the Suns did to the Lakers what the Rockets did to the Suns just a few days ago. The game was effectively over in the first quarter, with the Suns going up 25-6 before the Lakers could think straight and the Suns finished with a season-high in points.

The Suns got up by 21 in the first quarter, by 30 in the third and cruised to a season-best win over the still-rival-but-doesn’t-look-like-it Los Angeles Lakers.

Eric Bledsoe tied a season high with 13 assists and came just two rebounds shy of a triple double before the end of the third quarter.

Devin Booker began the game with 18 points in his first 15 minutes, including making 3 of 4 threes, and Marquese Chriss was all bouncy and pouncy all game.
