There's no question that James and Davis are one of the best 1-2 punches in basketball today. Portland took Game 1 and embarrassed Los Angeles. The Lakers came back to win the next three games. In Game 4, the Blazers lost their top-scorer and team leader, Lillard and did not have time to make adjustments resulting in a 20-point drubbing. This is a team with a smart coaching staff that has had ample time to prepare for the absence of their top player. LA only needs to win this game, not to cover this huge point spread. Look for their top players to sit late if they have if they have the game in hand. I see Portland showing some fight and some pride in a valiant effort. Take the Blazers. Thank you.
