After weeks of speculation, it turns out that the Portland Trail Blazers are exactly what the Los Angeles Lakers needed. In Game 2, their duel burns in two quarters as the Lakers lead 80-51 at halftime. LeBron James has 22 points and seven assists. Anthony Davis has 18 of his own, and the two together have only missed three shots in the entire game.
The blazers, meanwhile, are struggling to find a good look for themselves. Your two star guards, Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum, are both single digits, and since the rest of the roster only shoots 2 out of 8 on 3 pointers, they just couldn’t generate any easy points. The Blazers did great to make the playoffs and win Game 1 of this series, but they just aren’t a match for the Lakers at this point.
