Lakers head coach Darvin Ham was asked how the Lakers plan on defending against the lethal trio of Kevin Durant, Bradley Beal, and Devin Booker tonight. The head coach revealed three keys to stopping the Suns Big 3, individual pride, doing work early, and help defense.

Although the Suns are finally playing with all three of their superstars in the lineup, their recent performance has been underwhelming. Kevin Durant and Co. have lost 3 of their last 4 games. That means there is a way to stop the Suns Big 3, and many teams have found it. LeBron James and Co. hope to be one of those teams.

Can the Lakers turn their season around?

This year is the first season since the 2019-20 season that both LeBron James and Anthony Davis have been completely healthy for such a long stretch. The Lakers duo is averaging a total of over 50 points per game. However, the Lakers are still stuck at the 9th spot in the Western Conference standings with a 19-19 record. The Lakers role players have failed their superstar duo with their disappointing performance. Head coach Darvin Ham has also failed to make adjustments amid the recent struggles.

The Lakers front office is desperately looking to acquire a third star before the trade deadline to keep their Championship dream alive. If LeBron James and Co. come out with their 4th win of the season against the Phoenix Suns tonight, that will be a big confidence boost for them. That too if they do it against a fully healthy Big 3 of KD, Booker, and Beal. Tonight’s win might even be the starting point of an amazing turnaround by the Los Angeles Lakers.
