The Portland Trail Blazers have their backs against the wall against the LA Lakers and have to catch up 1: 3. And now the best player, Damian Lillard, is also out.
The Portland Trail Blazers’ already low hopes of advancing in the NBA playoffs are almost zero. Damian Lillard, the most valuable player (MVP) of the “Bubble” in Orlando / Florida, was unable to play against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday (local time) due to a knee sprain.
Portland is down 3-1 against the Lakers around LeBron James in the round of 16, the Trail Blazers must win all of the next three games to advance to the next round. Without Lillard, who was injured in the fourth encounter, it will of course be extremely difficult. In-game two, Lillard had dislocated his left index finger.
