In Los Angeles, before the start of the playoffs, they did not even think that they would have more than four matches in the first round. However, winners of the regular season in the Western Conference in the first meeting lost to the eighth-ranked “Portland”. Therefore, the struggle is still ahead. In the fifth meeting of the first round teams will try again to determine the strongest.
The Lakers lost the first match, so they threw all their strength forward. LeBron James and Anthony Davis did not spare themselves and did everything possible so that only the leader of the West would not make a mistake again. Frank Vogel's wards won all three of the next fights and will once again take to the floor as the clear favorite.
The Los Angeles club thinks only about the championship. This is especially noticeable in the game of King James, who always wants to win, although this is only the first round of the playoffs.
Portland took the Lakers by surprise in the first meeting, because they managed to get the victory (100-93). After that, Terry Stots' team began to surrender sharply, as a result of which they lost three times. Even the efforts of Damian Lillard did not help so much. By the way, the leader of the Blazers injured his knee and is unlikely to appear in the fifth match of the series.
In short, the Blazers will most likely end up in the playoffs, as there are so many players in the infirmary, which will clearly affect their play.
