The Lakers (4-5) finally got a win away from L.A. on Friday against the Phoenix Suns to close out a four-game road trip. They return home perhaps getting a little bit healthier, although LeBron James suffered a calf contusion on Friday. With six of its next seven games at Crypto.com Arena, the team will look to gain some momentum.
After trading Damian Lillard, Portland (3-5) is in full rebuild mode, but it does have some intriguing young players. However, several of its key players are expected to be out of action.
