Lakers succumb to Portland victims of exhaustion

The Los Angeles Lakers have conceded their second defeat of the season in the NBA after losing at home to Portland Trail Blazers (107-115), who have taken advantage of the accumulated fatigue of their rivals to conquer the Staples Center at the hands of Damian Lillard ( 31 points).

In his third game in the last four days, not even the return of Anthony Davis served to prevent the Lakers from stumbling in a game that Marc Gasol finished with 4 points (2/4 in field goals), 7 rebounds, 2 blocks and 1 steal in 19 minutes of play starting as a starter.

LeBron James (29 points) and Dennis Schroder (24) were the top scorers of the Californian team, which accused Davis’s discreet performance (13 and 10 rebounds) in a very even game that was decided in the final minutes.

In these decisive plays the figure of Lillard emerged, who allied with Gary Trent (28 points and 7 triples) and CJ McCollum (20 and 11 assists) to lead the visitor’s victory against an opponent who could not find answers.

MARC GASOL: 4 points, 7 rebounds, 2 blocks and 1 steal.
