    What started as a blowout has turned into the best game of the day. The Blazers jumped out to a 36-25 first-quarter lead, but after two competitive quarters, it’s 78-75 Portland heading into the fourth. The stars have led the way on both sides. LeBron James already has a triple-double with 16 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists while Anthony Davis has poured in 26 points. Damian Lillard, meanwhile, has 25 points of his own, and C.J. McCollum got in on the fun in the third quarter to get up to 16 points himself. 

    The winner of this game is going to come down to the role players. Nobody is hitting shots on either side, and nobody has found a way to slow down the superstars. If one team manages to do so in the fourth, we’ll have our winner there.

    One note: If the Lakers are going to go PnR heavy, they have to do so deliberately. Davis has to set hard screens, and they have to try to draw Whiteside away from the basket where he’s vulnerable.

    Four missed free throws by LeBron and AD. If the Lkaers lose this game, that’s going to be why.

    Kyle Kuzma is back in for Dwight. Expect the Lakers to go back to the LeBron-Davis pick-and-roll that worked so well in the second quarter.

    And just like that, the Blazers are back on top. Their guards are taking this game over.

    That’s 14 points for Kyle Kuzma. He’s been a killer in transition, and the Lakers are up six.

    LeBron just forced a jump-ball on C.J. McCollum out of thin air. How did he even think to do that?
