Lakers

Did you want an unexpected NBA playoff full of intrigue and sensation? You got it! For the first time in 17 years, both conference winning teams lost their playoff opening matches to eighth-placed clubs. “Lakers” are simply obliged to take the victory over “Portland” in the third game of the first round of the series, if they really want to take the title.

Portland

The Blazers gained an incredible move. The team did their best just to get into the playoffs, for which we must pay tribute. Terry Stots' wards spent a lot of energy and in this euphoria they even managed to defeat the Lakers in the first match of the series (100-93).

“Portland” felt that now is the moment when you shouldn't miss your chance, but the second meeting showed that not everything is as simple as it seemed at first glance. The Lakes woke up and fought back and did it confidently (88-111).

There is no doubt that the Blazers will face an extremely difficult test in the next meeting and after a series of injuries, the team will come to the floor as an underdog.

Lakers

The Lakes didn’t show anything sensible after the restart of the season, but the impression was that the head coach simply saved the strength of his leaders, so that there were no injuries before the playoffs.

The Lakers relaxed so much that in the first match of the series they lost to the sensational "Portland" (93-100), although this failure was a turning point for the Frank Vogel team. In the next meeting, LeBron James and Anthony Davis played aggressively and finally won (111-88).

One gets the impression that after the slap in the face from the "blazers" the team started up and will now show the game we are used to.

Prediction

Portland pissed off LeBron James and company a lot when they left an opponent with nothing in the first playoff match. However, the team was simply sorted into pieces in the second meeting and the Lakers are unlikely to slow down after that.

In our opinion, the "Lakes" are back and will now demonstrate the game that one of the main contenders for the championship should show, so we offer a bet on the victory of Frank Vogel's wards, taking into account the handicap.

Our prediction is the victory of the Los Angeles Lakers taking into account the handicap (-4.5) points for the odds of 1.55 in the 1xBet.
