Top 5 Lakers vs. Blazers Games of All Time

4: Lakers-Blazers Game 6 Thriller- May 1991

The Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers playoff battles date back to the 1990s and even Magic Johnson got involved in the rivalry. In 1991, the Blazers were expected to return the NBA Finals once again, but the Lakers prevented that with an impressive 1991 Western Conference Finals performance.

The Lakers beat the Blazers in six games, but it was not easy. In the final game, the Blazers fought with all their might, but the Lakers ended up edging them out, 91-90. Johnson and Sam Perkins led the Lakers with 25 and 26 points, respectively, but the Lakers went on to lose the 1991 NBA Finals to the Chicago Bulls.
