The Suns have already beaten the Lakers 119-99, 112-106 and 116-107, with Phoenix scoring an average of 115.7 points a night.
The Lakers haven't been able to handle the combination in any of the three pervious matchups. Bledsoe scored 22 points with eight rebounds and eight assists in late December, while Dragic had 24 points and Thomas 15.
Jeremy Lin had one of his best games in that contest with 21 points, hitting four of six three-pointers. If Price is a no-go, the Lakers will need even more from Lin.
Ultimately, defense is the problem for the Lakers, both against the Suns and in general.
Rookie Jordan Clarkson could get some time at the point in the potential absence of Price.
Nick Young emerged from a lengthy slump with a strong game against the Jazz. The last time the Lakers and Suns met, Young added 21 points on four-of-six shooting from three-point range.
The Suns are just a bad matchup for the Lakers. Expect a Phoenix sweep.
