The Lakers are back in the NBA Playoffs, for the first time in nearly a decade, and as a top seed in the Western Conference. Unfortunately, they draw an unusually difficult opponent in the Portland TrailBlazers. Damian Lillard is red hot, and the Blazers are a better team than the one that struggled throughout the regular season.
So how does this one play out? To preview, the Kamenetzky Brothers break it down with Peter Sampson, contributing writer at the great blog Blazer’s Edge and a host at Portland’s 750 The Game.
From there, Andy and Brian explain why winning this season, weird as it may be, is critical because L.A.’s championship window may not get much wider. Plus, Jimmy Butler’s totally epic bubble coffee bar, and a Hollywood wedding with some weird math.
