LA LAKERS: LAST SEASON: 37-45, finished 10th in Western Conference.
COACH: Frank Vogel (first season with Lakers; ninth season overall, 304-291).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Rajon Rondo (9.2 ppg), G Danny Green (10.3 with Toronto), F LeBron James (27.4), F Anthony Davis (25.9 with New Orleans), C JaVale McGee (12.0).
KEY LOSSES: F Brandon Ingram, G Lonzo Ball, G Josh Hart, G Lance Stephenson.
KEY ADDITIONS: Davis, Green, C Dwight Howard, G Avery Bradley, F Jared Dudley, G Quinn Cook.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The evolving chemistry between James and Davis will be at the forefront, but the Lakers' success in creating an immediate title contender could hinge on the supporting cast. Green must keep the outside shooting proficiency he demonstrated last season for Toronto, while Kyle Kuzma must find a role on a reconfigured roster. The Lakers' biggest early-season subplot of all might be around Howard, whose return to LA after six seasons away could be greeted by boos or cheers.
OUTLOOK: An aspiring super team takes shape around James and Davis, who joined forces to do a whole lot more than end the Lakers' franchise-record playoff drought at six years. LA expects to be a title contender with two of the NBA's best players anchoring a lineup featuring perimeter shooting from Green and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, fast-break proficiency from Alex Caruso and Kuzma, and sturdy defense from Bradley, Rondo and McGee. Vogel's ability to fold this talent into a cohesive unit over the next few months will determine whether the Lakers can do something special in the spring.

Because of this important information, no power rating or computer score edges are posted for this game.

PHOENIX: LAST SEASON: 19-63, finished 15th in Western Conference.
COACH: Monty Williams (first season with Suns, sixth season overall, 173-221).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Ricky Rubio (12.7 ppg), G Devin Booker (26.6), F Kelly Oubre Jr. (15.2), F Dario Saric (10.6), C Deandre Ayton (16.3)
KEY LOSSES: F T.J. Warren, G/F Josh Jackson
KEY ADDITIONS: Rubio, Saric, G/F Cameron Johnson, F Frank Kaminsky III, F Cheick Diallo, G Ty Jerome
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The Suns are trying to build a winning team around the core of Ayton and Booker, who are both still young and put up big numbers last season. The 7-foot-1 Ayton averaged a double-double in his rookie season while shooting nearly 59 percent from the field. Booker averaged 26.6 points per game and nearly seven assists. Oubre was a pleasant surprise after joining the team midway through last season, scoring nearly 17 points per game after the trade and playing good defense. Rubio gives the Suns an experienced point guard who should help Ayton, Booker and Oubre get better scoring chances. Rubio's presence also allows Booker to play off the ball and focus on scoring.
OUTLOOK: The Suns should be much better than the 19-win version of a year ago. Rubio's presence along with the input first-year coach Monty Williams should give the starting lineup some discipline and structure. Phoenix's ceiling depends on the development of Ayton and Booker. If the two can develop into All-Star caliber players than there might be something brewing in the desert. The major problem is the Western Conference is still stacked with good teams, so a move into the playoffs feels a little far-fetched this season.
Resurgent Suns look to stop James, Lakers

A couple of constants have emerged a month into the NBA season.

LeBron James' triple-doubles.

The Phoenix Suns' triples.

James, we could see coming.

The Suns, not so much.

With new accomplice Anthony Davis riding with the King, James has four triple-doubles this season, all in the past five games, and it could have been more. He is two assists short of a fifth triple-double and three rebounds short of sixth.

The Suns, meanwhile, will bring record long-range shooting into their home game against the Lakers on Tuesday, a game that matches Western Conference teams that are off to their best starts in almost a decade.

The Lakers have won seven of their first nine, their best start since 2010-11, although their seven-game winning streak was broken in a 113-104 loss to Toronto on Sunday.

"We're a resilient team," James said. "We're not a complacent team. We hate to lose (but) we just move on to the next one and find ways we can improve. We're a really good team, but we want to get even better."

James had 13 points, a season-high 13 rebounds and 15 assists against the Raptors, becoming the first Laker to have four triple-doubles in the first 10 games of a season. Not even Magic Johnson did that.

Coach Monty Williams' Suns have made at least 11 3-pointers in a franchise-record seven consecutive games -- and in eight of nine games overall. They had a season-high 19 in a 138-112 blowout of the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday, their largest point total of the season. At 6-3, the Suns are off to their best start since the 2009-10 team won eight of its first nine.

"You have to give coach a lot of credit for that," point guard Ricky Rubio said of the freeing aspect of being able to shoot when open, even from long range. "There are a lot of coaches in the league who want to control everything. He trusts us, of course, teaching us something new every day."

Meanwhile, the health of Davis' right shoulder appears to be an on-going issue.

"We'll see," coach Frank Vogel said Monday about Davis' shoulder soreness turning into a season-long problem. "We'll take it day by day."

Davis, who is averaging 26.6 points and 10.2 rebounds in his first season with the Lakers, aggravated a shoulder injury when blocking a Pascal Siakam shot in the third quarter Sunday.

Davis grabbed his shoulder and winced but remained in the game with an OK from the Lakers' medical staff. He was treated with a heating pad while on the bench.

The Lakers listed him as probable for Tuesday, but Vogel said "it's possible" he could rest Davis at times, even if he's is cleared.

"There's really never a play I don't feel it," said Davis, who sustained the injury on a missed slam dunk two weeks ago. "But I'm going to go out there and play. I try not to let it affect my game. I just play through it and then worry about taking care of it after the game."

The Lakers will play their first set of back-to-back games this week, returning home to face Golden State on Wednesday.

The Suns had some season-best numbers against Brooklyn, posting a season-high 37 assists on 52 baskets and a season-low seven turnovers. Rubio, signed as a free agent in the offseason, had season highs with 22 points and 12 assists. He had no turnovers in 29 minutes.

"We were making shots of course, that helps, but we kept moving the ball even sometimes when we weren't making the shots," Rubio said. "We played super unselfish, and that is super fun to play."
