Update: The Lakers have a tough time winning in Portland (3-12 in their last 15 there) but are much better at Staples Center against the Trail Blazers (14-2 since 2005). Portland is one of the NBA’s biggest surprises thanks to forward LaMarcus Aldridge and a solid backcourt of Damian Lillard and Wesley Matthews. The Trail Blazers are 7-2 on the road.
