Alex Len helps Suns to big loss by getting dunked on by Lakers’ Brandon Ingram (video)
With their 122-110 loss to the Lakers last night, the Suns moved within a game of Los Angeles for the No. 2 seed in the lottery.
Not only did the loss help Phoenix “gain” ground in the standings, the Suns weakened a rival. If the Lakers’ 2017 first-round pick lands outside the top three, it goes to the 76ers -- and Los Angeles’ 2019 first-rounder goes to the Magic. Otherwise, Orlando gets second-rounders. As much as improving lottery position helps Phoenix, the Lakers had a lot more riding on this game.
Which is why Alex Len deserves so much credit for this play, getting dunked on by Brandon Ingram and helping rally Lakers players into handing the Suns a helpful double-digit loss.
