Anthony Davis returned to action with two big games, most recently he had 28 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists in a loss against the Nuggets.

Whether with AD or without him, the Lakers are now on a six-game losing streak and are facing elimination unless they start winning and the Spurs are losing.

The next game for the purple and gold is against the top team in the NBA – the Suns. The Lakers will need their best effort to win.

Davis was asked if LeBron James, who was out against Denver, will be available for the Phoenix game. “I have no idea. I hope so,” was his response.

For the Suns this will be meaningless game in terms of standing as they have already clinched the number one seed in the Western Conference while the Lakers are in desperate need of a win.
