LA Lakers vs Portland by Rahul

The Lakers are a rut winning just 2 games all season, coming against 2 poor teams in Brooklyn and Detroit. While the Lakers are in rebuilding mode; they tend to let Kobe Bryant take too many shots for his shooting percentage this season, which is making things ineffective on the offensive end. The Lakers have tended to play close to teams like New York, Orlando, Denver, Dallas among teams who are not at the elite level and still yet manage to lose those close games. They have no particular strategy in their offence under Byron Scott, but I believe that they will learn to develop it as the season progresses and more when Bryant is off the floor. Randle is the only major doubt for them with a toe injury, which could mean Brandon Bass steps into the starting lineup; giving them less of a scoring impact.
I believe the Blazers know what they have to do to win and Terry Stotts is a very clever coach to get results with this rebuilding team, and I expect Portland to come out of this game with a win.
