The Los Angeles Lakers and the Portland Trail Blazers will meet tonight from the Rose Garden in Portland. Get your NBA odds at Bovada sportsbook.
The Portland Trail Blazers will look to begin their 2012 season on a positive note when they host the Lakers at home tonight. The Blazers return the core of the Marcus Aldrich, Nicholas Batum, and Wesley Matthews who will look to guide them into the playoffs. If the Blazers are going to compete right away they will need big contributions from first-round draft picks Damian Lillard and Meyers Leonard. If those two do not mature behind beyond their years pretty quickly it could be a tough season for Portland.
The Lakers were the headline team in the off-season with all of their big free-agent acquisitions, but lost their first game at home of the new season yesterday to the Mavericks. They will look to rebound tonight and avoid going 0-2 on the season. It was a pretty solid debut for Dwight Howard in his first game as a Laker as he scored 19 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. It looks however though it will take a little bit of time for the roster to gel as a whole which was expected.
