Los Angeles Lakers vs. Portland
The Los Angeles Lakers have Kobe Bryant so they're always a threat to win big games. The Black Mamba came through in a big way last night with 30 points to help LA regain the 8th and final playoff spot in the Western conference. The problem is Kobe is logging too many minutes and his supporting cast isn't doing enough to keep other teams from focusing all their attention his direction. The Portland Trailblazers are the next big test for the Lakers and they should be able to pull out a victory. The problem is the Lakers are old and this is a back to back game. You know how I feel about those. Although the Lakers need this win desperately something tells me Portland will play the spoiler tonight. It wouldn't be LA without the drama right? Portland wins a tight one.
