Los Angeles Lakers Team News 

The Lakers continue where they left off last season. With bad results, they entered the season with two losses. It remains to be seen whether Lebron and company will manage to record their first victory.

The team from LA changed their coach this summer. Vogel left the Lakers’ bench and the Bucks’ assistant coach, Darvin Ham, arrived. Ham immediately tried to reconstruct the team and replace some worn-out players with younger and fresher ones. The biggest problem for the Lakers is the play of Westbrook, who is playing desperately. Against the Clippers, he “broke” the board where, in almost 30 minutes on the floor, he had 0 points from 11 shots.

However, this season everything in the Lakers game will depend on the health and mood of Lebron James and Anthony Davis. When the two are healthy and at their highest level, the Lakers are title contenders. The fans of the “yellow and blue” from Los Angeles hope that Rus Westbrook’s talent will return and that he will start playing at least a few games like when he was the MVP of the NBA League, averaging a triple-double.

To win against the Trail Blazers, they will need a team game, where all players contribute. Otherwise, the win goes to Oregon.

Portland Trail Blazers Team News 

Blazers entered this season very strong! They won both games, the Kings away, while the Suns fell after overtime. What is particularly interesting is that the Trail Blazers played disastrously in the preseason, but they showed their true colors at the season opener. Against the Kings, even 4 players scored 20 or more points each.

The Trail Blazers will depend a lot on the health and form of Damian Lillard, who took a break for a large part of the season last season. Team coach Chauncey Billups decided to bring in a couple of young players who can meet all his demands on both sides of the court.

Jeremi Grant, who was one of the Pistons’ main players last season, arrived as the biggest reinforcement this summer. His length and athleticism will contribute greatly to the Blazers on both ends of the court.

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Portland Trail Blazers Prediction 

This match is played in the matinee time slot, so we are probably expecting a somewhat “unwatchable” match. But we expect Lakers to finally win. It won’t be easy for them, but if Westbrook starts the engines even a little, they should win this match.
