NBA Analyst Nick Wright warns Phoenix Suns to finish the series tomorrow, backs LeBron James and the Lakers if the series goes to a Game 7
The Los Angeles Lakers are going through a rough phase as they are trailing 3-2 against the Phoenix Suns. Their recent 115-85 defeat to the Suns was very disappointing. While a lot of people expected more fight from the Purple and Gold, they simply did not show up. Frank Vogel’s men looked way below par without Anthony Davis, who suffered a groin strain and was out for Game 5.
The loss forced media personality and a renowned LeBron James supporter, Nick Wright to accept his mistake. Wright picked the Lakers to win Game 5 and was horribly disappointed with his call. However, he also claimed that the series is far from over and he expects the Lakers to make a strong comeback.
Wright even warned the Suns to finish it off within Game 6 at the Staples Center as he warns Chris Paul and company regarding Game 7 Lebron James.

Nick Wright owned up to his missed call on Game 5. Speaking about the same, Wright said, “I have to take this one on the chin. I thought LeBron would have a sense of urgency. Schröder had the worst game of his life, … It was a disaster, everything about it was terrible. However, it is always darkest before dawn. The series is not over.”

However, his warning to the Suns came soon after when Wright added, “Since it’s literally impossible to beat LeBron in a Game 7, Phoenix faces a must-win on Thursday night!”
LeBron James is one of the best players ever to grace the game and there is no denying that. Also, his performances at elimination matches are electrifying. He has done it in the past but with age catching up and without Anthony Davis by his side, it will be difficult for Lebron James to run his magic yet again.
However, with Chris Paul also suffering from a shoulder issue, things are bound to get interesting in the remaining matches. The Lakers will hope that they can get AD back onto the court as soon as possible as he holds the key to success for the Purple and Gold.
