So far, so good when it comes to our NBA locks this postseason, we’re a perfect 2-0. We’ve yet to make a lock regarding the Lakers – Blazers series, but that changes today.
NBA Lock For Monday: Los Angeles Lakers vs. Portland Trailblazers
The Pick: Lakers -7
Tip-Off: 9:00 PM EST
First instinct here is woah, seven points is a lot to be giving up to Damian Lillard, but the Lakers seem to have found their stride. After dropping Game 1 in the series, Los Angeles has won the last two games by a combined 31 points thanks to the two-headed monster of Anthony Davis and LeBron James doing whatever they want on the court.
After a really disappointing Game 2, James came right back with a 23-point triple-double in Game 3. Davis, meanwhile, has managed a double-double in each game this series.
The Lakers got off to a slow start this postseason, but that seems to be well in the rearview. There’s a reason this Los Angeles team was looked at as a favorite to win the title this year and those two reasons, James and Davis, are clicking at the moment which is bad news for Portland. Los Angeles has also played its style of basketball, one which consists of many trips to the charity stripe, and that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere heading into Game 4.
