Lakers lose to Suns, miss playoffs
Deandre Eaton starred for the Suns with a 22-point lead and 13 rebounds, while Russell Westbrook was the best for the Lakers with 28 points and 5 rebounds.
The team led by Frank Vogel added 7 consecutive losses, along with the fact that the San Antonio Spurs simultaneously had a streak of 3 consecutive wins, securing their place in the championship.
In a game that meant the Lakers’ athletic elimination, LeBron James was not on the court due to physical problems. Which robbed the Lakers of many possibilities for a long-awaited victory over the best team in the Western Conference.
In this way, the Lakers 2021-22 end one of the most disappointing campaigns in NBA history,
