The Lakers look to make it 3 straight wins when they welcome in the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night.
Portland Trail Blazers
Portland has simply had the Lakers number recently in this head to head battle.
The Trail Blazers grabbed their 9th straight win over the Lakers on Thursday night in 118-109 fashion.
They’ll now look for their 6th consecutive win inside the Staples Center on Tuesday, as they have consistently found ways to come out of Los Angeles with close wins.
When Damien Lillard went down with an injury and missed time, it was C.J. McCollum who took it upon himself to step up.
McCollum turned in a 27 point effort in the win on Thursday over the Lakers and has been on a tear over the last 8 games.
McCollum has averaged 31.6 points per game over his last 8 games and was given a chance to take a last second shot in double overtime, but failed to hit it in a 125-124 loss to Detroit last time out.
With the way McCollum is playing along side Lillard, this Portland team becomes extremely dangerous.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers have put together back to back wins for the first time since the beginning of November.
Los Angeles took care of business against the Magic last time out, pulling away with ease, in what was a 111-95 home win. With the win, the Lakers improved to .500 at home, sitting at 10-10.
Rookie Brandon Ingram has picked up his game, a major reason why the Lakers have played better as of late.
In back to back games, Ingram has recorded 17 points and going 6 for 9 on both occasions.
Look for Nick Young to try and turn things around here, as he has really struggled as of late.
Young has gone 2 for 16 from the field over the last 2 games, really struggling to find any sort of feel with his jumper.
