Trail Blazers Vs. Lakers Game Thread
Not only are the Lakers an older team in the NBA (their starting backcourt: Nash and Bryant are aged 38 and 34 years respectively) but they will have already played a game the night before in Los Angeles.

Also, the Lakers have arguably the best Starting 5 in the NBA, but their bench? It leaves a lot to be desired. Push the tempo and force Coach Mike Brown to make more substitutions, getting those starters off the court for as long as possible.
