May 27, 2010 - Los Angeles, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES - epa02176324 Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant (L) gets by Phoenix Suns center Louis Amundson (R) for a break away basket during the first half of game five of the NBA Western Conference Final in Los Angeles, California, USA, 27 May 2010. The Lakers and Suns are tide in a best of seven series two games all.

The start of the Lake Shows season was certainly an asset but now the Los Angeles Lakers are becoming a loss leader of sorts. The Lakers have now dropped their last two games and yesterday they suffered their first home disadvantage. Phoenix proved that even though they've lost Amare, their still hot as they burnt the Lake Show 121-116. Phoenix rose from the ashes of critical doubt and let the rainbow three's shine. In dropping the Lakers, Phoenix sunk the second most 3 pointers in NBA history and Jason Richardson had a monster performance, roaring with 34 points and 7 threes. As his team defined history for the first time, legend Steve Nash once again defied age with 21 points and 13 assists. Channing Frye and Hedo Turkoglu also contributed from deep adding a respectful 20 and 4 threes and 17 and 5 threes respectively. The Suns were just one 3 ball shy of over shining Orlando's 2009 record as they made 22 of 40 shots still Phoenix still filed away the Lakers at Staples for the first time since 2008. LA's players still saw some sunshine as Gasol hit 28, Kobe 25, Odom 22 and Artest 13. Still Phoenix's threes were too much for the Lakers to escape with one 'W'. As the clock read zero the Lakers were out gunned and out numbered. TIM DAVID HARVEY
