Suns Vs. Lakers: L.A. Finding Consistency At Home

Head coach Mike Brown of the Los Angeles Lakers confers with Pau Gasol #16 before the game with the Golden State Warriors at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The Los Angeles Lakers play the Phoenix Suns on January 10, 2012.

The Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns have both won their last two in a row entering Tuesday night's game.

Slowly but surely, the Los Angeles Lakers seem to be adjusting to life with Head Coach Mike Brown and a number of new key role players. Since their surprising early season loss to the Sacramento Kings, the Lakers have won six consecutive games at home, and they will be favored to extend that streak on Tuesday night against the Phoenix Suns.

Both teams have won their last two games in a row, and Steve Nash doesn't look the least bit old or tired. He's still Phoenix's best player, and he was fantastic in their last game. In a win over the Milwaukee Bucks, Nash shot 5-7 from the floor and dished out 17 assists. He's third in the league in assists per game at the moment, partially aided by Marcin Gortat's league-leading field-goal percentage of 63.4.

Meanwhile Kobe Bryant is second in the league in scoring, while Andrew Bynum is finally playing like the player everyone said he would be if he could stay healthy. The Lakers' big man is averaging 15.7 rebounds per game with six games played, which would be good for the league lead if he was qualified.

Game Date/Time: Tuesday, Jan. 10, 10:30 p.m. ET

Venue: Staples Center, Los Angeles, California
