Tonight, the Los Angeles Lakers finally put an end to their four-game losing streak. They did so by defeating the Damian Lillard-led Portland Trail Blazers. The Blazers have been excellent this season, but against the defending champions they came up short.
Despite losing the game, their superstar Damian Lillard continues to make a case for winning the league MVP this season. Subsequently, he finished the game with 35 points against the purple and gold. However, his efforts were negated by LeBron James, who had an amazing game himself.
With the Blazers currently struggling with injury troubles, Dame’s performances are incredibly important for the team. For the most part, he has done his job, but there is only so much a player can do by himself.
Moving forward, other Blazers players need to step up their game and help their leader. Otherwise, the Blazers will be defeated once again easily in the playoffs.
LeBron James opens up about facing off against Damian Lillard
After winning this game, Lakers superstar LeBron James opened up on facing Dame. In the post-game conference, LBJ said:
“Dame has an unlimited range so you have to be up on screens. Once he crosses half court he is in his range, so you know you have to have everybody up the floor the guy that’s guarding him and the guy that’s guarding the pick and roll. There’s going to be double drags, there’s going to be single drags, there’s going to be a lot of things that are going on in early transition,”
