Los Angeles Lakers Vs. Portland Trail Blazers NBA Preseason Highlights
D’angelo Russell On Lakers: ‘we Don’t Want To Go Through Losing Seasons’
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Life has been good for the Los Angeles Lakers, who possess a 2-1 record in the NBA Preseason and appear to be enjoying playing basketball under new head coach Luke Walton. The offense has looked much more efficient than last season, and the defense, while a work in progress tactically, is at least playing with energy and passion.

Tonight, though, they take on the difficult task of slowing down the Portland Trail Blazers, who boast the explosive backcourt duo of C.J. McCollum and Damian Lillard. The Lakers have had their own backcourt dynamic duo in D’Angelo Russell and Lou Williams, who put up 33 and 25 points, respectively, in their last outing against the Denver Nuggets.

Still, Portland will present a step up in competition, and it will be interesting to see how the young Lakers handle it.
