Lakers show their offensive chops, stay hot in the desert

Get yourself a team capable of diversifying its portfolio of wins.

After going on a 7-game winning streak fueled primarily by its suffocating defense, the Lakers showed Tuesday night in Arizona that they’re also very capable of surviving a shootout.

It was clear from the get-go that this wasn’t just going to be an offensive duel, but one marked by a clash of scoring styles.

Both teams excelled at what they do, with the Suns draining 16 three-pointers and the Lakers dominating the paint to the tune of 70 points, producing a highly entertaining matchup full of lead changes and intrigue.
