If you’ve been a fan of the NBA over the past decade, you’ve definitely heard the phrase “LeBron James’ legacy is on the line,” many, many times. And Tuesday’s Game 5 between the Lakers and Suns in Phoenix will represent another chance for James to add another notch onto his Hall-of-Fame belt.

However, Phoenix has been the better team for most of the series and hasn’t looked out of place. The major storyline heading into Game 5 is the health of Lakers star Anthony Davis, who will be out with a strained groin he suffered in the Game 4 loss in Los Angeles.

Chris Paul is still dealing with a shoulder contusion, but has managed to look a bit better each game.

With Paul gutting it out, and Devin Booker and DeAndre Ayton looking awesome in their first postseason, there is good reason to believe Phoenix can take a 3-2 lead back to Los Angeles.

Game 4: 27 pts + reb ✅
Game 3: 26.5 pts + reb ✅
Game 2: 25.5 pts + reb ✅
Game 1: 22 pts + reb ✅@DeandreAyton has cashed his points + rebounds prop in all four games vs. Lakers 👀
