Both the Trail Blazers and Lakers enter Friday’s contest in need of a win. Coach Terry Stotts’ squad is looking to avoid a four-game slide on the heels of a six-game winning streak. LeBron James and the Lakers are also looking to snap a losing streak of their own. Los Angeles enters tonight’s game on a four-game skid.
Forget the losing streaks, though. Saturday’s contest features a battle between two bonafide MVP candidates.

- Don’t use gifs or videos in Game Day Threads because it slows down the comment section
- Don’t troll in your comments; create conversation rather than destroying it
- Remember Blazer’s Edge is basically a non-profanity site
- Out of respect to broadcast partners who have paid to carry the game, no mentions of “alternative” (read: illegal) viewing methods are allowed in our threads
That’s all and BEAT LA!
