Locked On Suns Thursday: Late rally not enough as Ricky Rubio gets hurt and Suns lose to Lakers

The Suns cut a 36-point lead to single digits but could not close out the Lakers on the road.

Brendon goes solo to recap an up-and-down loss to the Lakers in Los Angeles. After a miserable first half, the Suns dominated the final 24 minutes but missed threes and an injury to Ricky Rubio prevented them from finishing off the comeback.

Brendon breaks down the strong play and aggressive energy from Deandre Ayton and Tyler Johnson down the stretch and what it could mean going forward.

Finally, more on why the Lakers are such a bad matchup for the Suns and how LeBron James got his triple-double to close out the show.
