LA-Lakers
VS
Portland
The Portland Trail Blazers travel to this game against the LA Lakers after beating their cross town rivals Clippers at home. The Blazers have lost 4 out of their 5 starters from last year; but still have All-Star point guard in Damian Lillard to try and lead this team to success this year. The Blazers have recruited well and have a good well rounded unit with the likes of McCollom, Aminu, Plumlee and Davis as their potential starting 5. They have a good starting unit with the likes of Crabbe, Henderson, Vonleh, Kaman and Harkless who provide good support off the bench to keep this team scoring. The Blazers are averaging around 100 points per game this season and relied a lot on the 3-ball averaging around 9 makes per game. Their scoring rate has been decent at 45% which has led to them scoring 1.2 shots per game. The Blazers have been playing some good team basketball and have shown to play well beating teams like Memphis, Utah, New Orleans and Minnesota; and should feel confident about playing the Lakers today.

 

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.
