Bettors believe in Portland

Before the first game of the series, everyone was betting on the Lakers. After the game one victory that has changed drastically. Look at the latest point-spread and that should say it all. The Lakers are still (-6) point favorites in game two, but the money is split with 50% betting on Portland and the other 50% remaining true to LeBron James and LA.

Do not doubt Dame

Damian Lillard is incredible and he is one of the best players on the planet. His play in the bubble has been nothing short of remarkable. In eight seeding games, he averaged 37.6 points and 9.6 assists and his deep shots in game one were jaw-dropping. He scored 34 points and had six 3-pointers, leaving the Lakers lifeless. The Lakers have to figure out a way to stop Lillard if they hope to recover from the loss.

Are the Lakers in trouble?

The most glaring issue for the Lakers is the 3-point shooting. The Lakers shot 5-31 from behind the arc. That is disgusting and a number that will not happen again in game two. Call it jitters or just cold-shooting, the Lakers are better from behind the arc, and although they could not hit the hoop in game one, look for a change in game two. 

Calling for playoff Rondo

The Lakers got some good news as Rajon Rondo is cleared to play and barring a set-back will be back in game two. His leadership on the court is invaluable. He is a playmaker and a distributor and this will help the Lakers consistency with star players off the floor.

The Blazers are riding a high and Dame is playing like the best player on the planet, but it’s time to bet on LeBron. The Lakers shooting from beyond the arc has to improve, right? They have to focus on a must-win game and must hit the wide-open shots that the Blazers tend to give up. Look for Anthony Davis to answer his very loud critics with a great outing in game two. The Trail Blazers are 11-26-2 ATS in their last 39 Conference Quarterfinals games and the Lakers get revenge in game two with a big win.
