what to know

The Lakers will play a full four quarters on Sunday, but hopefully they will settle things well before then. They will again play host and welcome the Portland Trail Blazers, with tip-off scheduled for 10:00 PM ET at Crypto.com Arena.

Last Friday, things could have been worse for Los Angeles, but they could have been much better as they lost 130-112 to Brooklyn. The loss was even more painful because the Lakers led 56–44 with 6:07 left in the second.

Despite the loss, the Lakers got a solid performance from Anthony Davis, who dropped a double-double of 26 points and 12 rebounds. Davis has been quite popular recently, having played the last four times and posting ten or more rebounds. Austin Reaves’ disappointing 0-6 three-point shooting was less helpful for the Lakers.

The Trail Blazers haven’t had as good a year as their fans were expecting, but back-to-back wins could be a sign of good things to come. They narrowly escaped victory as the team defeated Indiana 118–115.

The Trail Blazers can attribute their success to Jerami Grant, who scored 37 points, and Malcolm Brogdon, who scored 30 points with seven rebounds and six assists. This is the first time this season that Brogdon scored 30 or more points.

Los Angeles now has a losing record of 21-22. As for Portland, their win improved their record to 12–29.

This contest is shaping up to be a blast: the Lakers can’t miss this season, shooting 48.8% per game. However, it’s a different story for the Trail Blazers, as they have only shot 43.5% per game this season. Given the Lakers’ huge advantage in that area, the Trail Blazers must find a way to close that gap.

When the teams last played in November of 2023, the Lakers defeated the Trail Blazers 107-95. Will the Lakers repeat their success, or do the Trail Blazers have a better game plan this time? We will find out soon.
