Lakers vs Trail Blazers LIVE: 1st and 2nd Quarter

LAL are on a LeBron-led 11-0 run here that Montrezl Harrell kept moving with an and-1 after James took a rest. That gives them a 39-37 lead midway through the 2nd Q, erasing Portland’s early 11-point lead.

LAL just let Lillard walk into a 3, which they were very disciplined about avoiding in the playoff series last season. 18-8, Blazers.

A terrific athletic play from KCP got LAL an extra possession, which ultimately ended in an and-1 layup from Markieff Morris, who has 2 of LAL’s 3 FG’s as they trail 15-6 after he missed the FT. Blazers open 6 of 9 from the field with a pair of 3’s.

Strong LeBron start here, especially on defense, where he has 2 blocks and 1 steal plus a number of deflections already. He’s missed a few open shots and turned it over twice, and teammates haven’t converted his passes (1 assist) thus far.

NBA 2020-21 live stream: LA Lakers vs Portland Trail Blazers Match Preview

LA Lakers

The Lakers will be hoping to snap a four-game skid after getting routed by the red-hot Jazz in a 114-89 road loss on Wednesday.

LeBron James led the team in scoring with 10 points on seven of 13 shooting, Montrezl Harrell added 16 points off the bench while Markieff Morris chipped in with 12 points, but no other player scored more than eight points.

As a team, the Lakers shot just 40 percent from the field and eight of 33 from the 3-point line as they allowed 39 points in the second quarter to fall behind by double-digits early, before scoring just 17 points in the third quarter where they fell behind by as many as 29 points.

Portland Trail Blazers

Damian Lillard led the team with 25 points and 13 assists, Carmelo Anthony added 24 points off the bench, Derrick Jones Jr. and Gary Trent Jr. each scored 18 points while Enes Kanter chipped in with 16 points and 14 rebounds on seven of nine shooting.

As a team, the Trailblazers shot 47 percent from the field and 14 of 40 from the 3-point line but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Nuggets who were led by a game-high 41 points from Nikola Jokic.

They were one of the hottest teams in the league before dropping their last three games, but they will be well-rested as they haven’t played since Tuesday and they’re always a chance with Lillard leading the way.
