Portland Trail Blazers vs Los Angeles Lakers

TRAIL BLAZERS VS LAKERS

  • Preview

The Portland Trail Blazers are taking on the Los Angeles Lakers who are sitting at 2-1. Portland is coming off a narrow victory over the Houston Rockets where Portland was able to come out on top with a 2 pt overtime victory. Aside from a loss to their cross-town rival, the LA Clippers, the Lakers have been extremely dominant.

The Trail Blazers have been lackluster defensively despite adding Robert Covington from Houston in the offseason. Jusuf Nurvic has been vastly outplayed by opposing centers so far by Christian Wood and Rudy Gobert, and now he'll be facing against Anthony Davis arguably the best center in the game. Dame made his impact felt against Houston along with C.J. McCollum after a disappointing season opener.

The Los Angeles Lakers dominated the Minnesota Timberwolves in a game without Anthony Davis in a 36 point victory. The Lakers defensively forced an impressive 3pt percentage of 17.1%. Should Anthony Davis suit up and the Lakers keep up the defense the Trail Blazers will be completely outmatched aside from a Damien Lillard miracle.

The Trailblazers have been relatively underwhelming and even in their victory over Houston. Houston was without a handful of players such as Demarcus Cousins and John Wall. This should be a surprisingly easy victory for the Lakers especially if Davis suits up.
