One of the bubble’s most highly-anticipated first-round NBA Playoff series continues on Wednesday night when the Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Lakers take the court for Game 5 of the Western Conference quarterfinals inside of the league bubble at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando, Florida.
The Lakers hold a 3-1 series lead and are coming off of a huge and emotional win on Mamba Day where they celebrated the life of Kobe Bryant. If they can continue the momentum, Los Angeles will advance and Portland will be eliminated from the postseason.
To make matters worse for Portland, they will be without star guard Damian Lillard for the must-win game as he nurses a sprained right knee.
LeBron and company enter Game 5 as heavy 13.5-point favorites over the Trail Blazers.
