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.
