Gameday Thread: Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Lakers (Second half)

Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Led by LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard, the Blazers had a solid first half. The score was tied at halftime.

In the first quarter, the Blazers came out relaxed and ready to play. On offense at least. On defense, there was effort, but it's a work in progress. LaMarcus Aldridge looked fully healed, and Damian Lillard looked solid. The Blazers opened a small early lead behind Aldridge's 10 points, and nicely distributed scoring from there. The Blazers led 25-21 after the first quarter.

Early in the second quarter, Adam Morrison hit a few early shots to help push the Blazer lead to 8. The Laker reserves slowly but steadily led a comeback, cutting the lead to 3 at the 6:00 mark. The Blazers' shooting went cold, and Meeks gave the Lakers the lead with less than 5 minutes left. Damian Lillard took over late to give the Blazers a short lead, and the score was tied at halftime.
