LAL vs POR Match Prediction
The Lakers may face a double blow with both their aces in LeBron James and Anthony Davis out in the fixture against the Trailblazers. Trailblazers will be buoyed after the win in Rockets after their star pair of Dame and C.J. combined for 76 points. If both James and Davis miss out then Trailblazers have the upper hand because of the aforementioned duo. The Lakers are hit with the injury bug now and it will surely affect the way they begin their season.
Los Angeles Lakers vs Portland Trailblazers, Key Players:
C.J. has started this season with a couple of hot nights. He is coming off a spectacular 44 points, 8 assists, and 3 rebounds game against the Houston Rockets. He will look to continue his scoring outings and make Trailblazers a concrete team this season. He can be considered as a Super-Player for the Dream11 Fantasy basketball match-up.
LBJ, the last season's Finals MVP is racking up major statistics as usual. Although his numbers have slid so far compared to the previous year, he has still helped his team 2 out of 3 games in terms of winning. The Lakers are getting contributions from all-around so they are not overly dependent on the services of the King. He is coming off 18 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Dame Dolla has shaken off his opening game shooting blues and looks to be back in the groove. The phenomenal shooter had a great day against the Rockets, where he racked up 32 points, 9 assists, and 5 rebounds in a close win. One can expect Damian to be among the top scorers when it is all said and done in this season.
Big Nurk is yet to find his rhythm this season in terms of scoring. Even then, one can expect him to pull his socks and display an all-around game. He is coming off 12 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists, and 1 block game against the Rockets. He needs to be a solid presence in the paint for the Trailblazers to be successful.
Kyle Kuzma: Kyle has had a decent start to the season as a Starter. He is averaging 16.0 PPG across three games, and top-scored for Lakers with 20 points in the game against the Wolves.
Enes Kanter: The Turkish big man is an instant offense and provides premium rebounding off the bench. He is averaging 12.5 PPG and 8.5 RPG within just 22 MPG.
Montrezl Harrell: The undersized big-man has started with flying colors. He is averaging 17 PPG and 6.0 RPG across the three fixtures so far.
Note– Dennis Schroeder scored 11 points, 4 assists, and 4 rebounds in the Lakers' win against the Wolves.
Robert Covington had 9 points and 8 rebounds against the Rockets.
