Portland Blazers - LA Lakers
The Portland Trail Blazers play host to the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday evening. This marks the second game back home for the Trail Blazers (6-2). They went 3-1 on the trip, with wins in Orlando, Indiana and Houston. They returned home and took care of business against the Pelicans in their most recent contest, with an impressive 132-119 win.
Damian Lillard has been a beast so far this season, averaging 29.1 points, 6.0 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game. The Blazers are averaging 118.9 points per game. These two already played on opening night with Blazers being better team that night with excellent performance from Lillard.
The Lakers are averaging 121.0 points per game, which is third most in the league, however they are allowing an average of 121.1 points per game, which is third most in the league, as well. I think this will be match with a lot of points and it is a great opportunity for Damien Lillard with fast paced game and not so good Lakers defense.
