Despite just falling to them, Durant chose the Lakers to come out with the inaugural NBA Cup.

“I’m going to go with the Lakers because they beat us,” Durant said. “They got the size to compete with anybody. They’ve got the quickest flight out of anybody. The most fans out of anybody. It’s set up for them to win.”

Durant also told the media that he was originally not a fan of the In-Season Tournament when it was announced, but it grew on him.

This loss eliminated Phoenix from the tournament and also gave them an 0-3 record against the Lakers on the year.

Next up, the Suns (12-9) will play the Sacramento Kings (11-8) at home Friday night.
