LA Lakers Go for 2nd Straight Win

LA Lakers Go for 2nd Straight Win”

So a hard start to the season, one that has the Trail Blazers now sitting at 15-22 after a 125-117 loss to the Golden State Warriors Wednesday night here at Oracle Arena, shouldn't doom the Pacific Northwest to a season of anguish.

After going through a harrowing fourteen losses out of sixteen games in December in addition to losing their first game of 2017, the LA Lakers (13-25) have finally gotten a much-needed win. Curry 28pts, Durant 27. "I had a lot of energy", the 22-year-old told reporters, via ESPN. "Now it's about effort, our intensity and following the game plan each night out".

He posted his 16th double-double of the season with 27 points and 13 rebounds for the Bucks, who improved to 18-16. He made four of his 11 3-point attempts, helping the Trail Blazers (12-for-26) almost duplicate Golden State's 3-point output (13-for-36).

It is also worth noting that the Trail Blazers' starting point guard previously appeared in all 82 regular season games in each of his first three National Basketball Association campaigns from 2012 through 2014.

Bring the national title home this year
Finally, there's the Alabama DL, which returns largely intact and features multiple pass-rushers who can beat good OL. Things are a little different this year than they were last season, but the game should be just as entertaining.

You have to give the Portland Trail Blazers some credit. While Plumlee is a quality player - and particularly skilled as a passing big, averaging 4.2 assists per game and working nicely as a pick-and-roll partner for either player - he isn't a defensive presence. Curry is still one of the most spectacular players the league has ever seen. Maurice Harkless contributed with 10 points and seven rebounds, and Evan Turner added 11 points off the bench.

NOTES: Portland PG Damian Lillard (sprained left ankle) is considered "day-to-day", meaning he has yet to be ruled out of the Trail Blazers' game Thursday night against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Golden State took the lead for good on a Pachulia layup in the third minute of the third period. The Warriors have won five straight home games versus the Blazers, though Portland owns advantage in the all-time series. He's averaging 30.8 points over eight regular-season games against the Warriors and averaged 31.8 a game in last year's Western Conference semifinals, which the Warriors took in five.
