The issue I have with the Lakers is that while they have LeBron and Anthony Davis, they lack a lot of depth and we see that in the backcourt especially. I’ve said before that the loss of Avery Bradley to the Lakers can’t be understated as we’ve seen what Damian Lillard has done, even with a dislocated finger in game three, and a lot of it has to do with the fact that the Lake show doesn’t have Bradley there as the team’s best perimeter defender. Even with a banged up Lillard, the Blazers are the far more desperate team that has a legitimate depth advantage, so I’ll take Portland and the points as my premium play for this game.
