Fresh off a 109-103 victory against the Golden State Warriors, the Lakers (26-31, 26-30-1 ATS) snapped a three-game losing streak and began their two-game road trip on a positive note. The win improved their road record to 13-17 for the season. The Lakers shot 44.9% from the field but were dominant at the free-throw line, going 21-26 compared to Golden State’s 11-12.

Despite LeBron James’ absence, the Lakers had strong contributions from Anthony Davis, who recorded a double-double with 13 points and 16 rebounds, and Dennis Schroder, who put up 26 points. Los Angeles is currently two games behind Oklahoma City for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, where they currently occupy the 13th position. The Lakers average 117.0 points per game, ranked ninth in the league, and 106.3 points per 100 possessions. However, their defense remains a concern, as they rank 27th in the league with 118.3 points allowed per game and are slightly below average in the conference with the same number of points allowed per game

Los Angeles Lakers vs Portland Trail Blazers 2/13/2023 Picks, Odds and Betting Tips

The Portland Trail Blazers (27-29, 28-27-1 ATS) took charge in the fourth quarter and secured a 138-129 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder, who held a two-point lead at the end of the third quarter. This marks the third loss in a five-game homestand for the Trail Blazers, who have a record of 1-2 in their previous three matchups. The team holds a solid home record of 15-13.

Damien Lillard put on a show, tallying 38 points and 9 assists, following a string of impressive performances where he scored at least 33 points in three of his last four games. Despite the Thunder’s 56.6% shooting, including 12-24 from beyond the arc and 32-35 at the charity stripe, the Trail Blazers shot 55.3% for the game. This continues a concerning trend for the team, as they have lost four consecutive games in which they allowed over 122 points. On the season, Portland ranks 12th in the league in offense, averaging 114.9 points per game and 101.5 points per 100 possessions. However, they have been even stronger in conference play, averaging 117.1 ppg and allowing 116.1 ppg.

  • The total remained UNDER in 8 of Portland’s last 10 matches with the LA Lakers.
  • The Portland Trail Blazers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games at home.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 5 of Portland’s last 6 games at home with the Lakers. 

Los Angeles Lakers vs Portland Trail Blazers. The NBA pick for this game is the Los Angeles Lakers. The landscape of this matchup has shifted since the acquisition of D’Angelo Russell by the Los Angeles Lakers (26-31, 26-30-1 ATS). The Lakers now have a trusted playmaker at the helm, capable of orchestrating the offense and creating opportunities for multiple players. This presents a major challenge for the Portland Trail Blazers (27-29, 28-27-1 ATS), who, while formidable on their home court, have struggled to contain the Lakers in their previous two encounters. 

Despite the Trail Blazers being the favored pick last week, especially with LeBron James potentially out, the Lakers’ offensive prowess should not be underestimated. The team has shown a potent scoring attack, registering 129 points or more in three of their last six games. However, their defense has been a major weakness, currently in a slump. The Lakers are predicted to come out on top with a 121-117 victory, solidifying their standing in the race for third place.
