The Portland Trail Blazers return home tonight. After finishing a 1-2 road trip, they leap into the second half of a back-to-back against the Los Angeles Lakers.

THE BIG NEWS: Damian Lillard will return from his ankle sprain tonight, and will start, per Terry Stotts.

After a challenging opening stretch to the season, the Blazers now have a favorable schedule for a while. Fewer back-to-back games, and more opponents at or under .500. With the Blazers at 15-22, they need to take advantage of the easier schedule if they hope for any playoff seed above eighth, barring other unexpected events.

But for the fans, it has been an exercise in Patience.

How To Watch Los Angeles Lakers vs. Portland Trail Blazers:
