The Lakers will look to get back on track after an ugly 125-110 loss on Wednesday to the fast-moving Sacramento Kings. It was a dispirited performance for L.A., as it turned the ball over 23 times, leading to 30 points for the Kings, while Anthony Davis had an awful outing in which he shot just 3-of-9 from the field and scored only nine points.
Portland lost to the Lakers on Sunday at Crypto.com Arena, 116-110. Since then, it has lost two more contests, giving it a five-game losing streak. The Lakers need to be careful not to take this game too lightly, as they have lost a number of games this season to teams they likely should’ve beaten.
This will be the third in-season tournament game this year for the Purple and Gold. The team won both of its previous tourney games.
