This Friday, the Los Angeles Lakers will play their last game of 2021 and their rivals will be the Portland Trail Blazers, whom they will seek to defeat to leave behind a negative streak of six losses in their last seven NBA games.
This game will be played at the Crypto.com Arena, Los Angeles. It can be seen via streaming through the NBA League Pass.
Day: Friday, December 31.
Hour: 10:30 pm (Eastern Time of the United States).
Place: Crypto.com Arena, Los Angeles.
TV / Live Stream: NBA TV, Root Sports, Spectrum SportsNet and NBA League Pass.
Team record: Trail Blazers 13-21 / Lakers 17-19.
The Trail Blazers have accumulated three consecutive defeats and still have no arguments to turn around a season that seems headed for failure. Despite this, Damian Lillard has improved remarkably after a slow start, averaging 31 points and 6.1 assists per game.
For their part, the Lakers officially announced the departure of Rajon Rondo, who was sent to the Cleveland Cavaliers for a trade package yet to be confirmed. This shouldn’t affect coach Frank Vogel’s plans much, as the veteran’s role was almost nil in the rotation.
Portland Trail Blazers: Damian Lillard, Norman Powell, Tony Snell, Nassir Little, and Larry Nance.
Los Angeles Lakers: Russell Westbrook, Avery Bradley, Malik Monk, LeBron James, and Dwight Howard.
