CLICK VIDEO BELOW FOR FULL COVERAGE. Phoenix is undersized and must rely on their speed and matchups. No one on the Lakers matches up with Steve Nash. Stoudemire can hurt them from the high post. The Suns can exploit Bynum on high screen and rolls - especially after running Nash off some cross screens first. But really, it's up to Kobe: If he takes shots within the triangle, it will enable the Lakers to control the tempo and let his big men get in position to dominate on the offensive glass.
