Portland Trail Blazers vs Los Angeles Lakers. The NBA Pick for this game is the Los Angeles Lakers -5.5. The Lakers made mistakes on their defense particularly down the stretch and they will be making amends for it in Game 2. Despite the TrailBlazers shooting below 40% from the field, they still staged that upset and it’s one thing that Los Angeles should be worried about. Portland is a great offensive team and they are even more lethal when they are shooting well. The LA Lakers will win this match but will fall short on the spread to a predicted score of 114-111.
