The wait was not long. The playoffs are here and the Lakers will face the Blazers and Damian Lillard in the first round. With that, in the latest episode of the Laker Film Room Podcast, Pete and I dive deep in the matchup between these two old west rivals.
Specifically, we look at how the Lakers can try to slow Dame, the import of Jusuf Nurkic and CJ McCollum to countering what the Lakers do in their attempts to slow the superstar PG, what we expect from LeBron and AD, the importance of Kuzma, our concerns with the Lakers starting lineup, and how quickly Vogel may turn to his bench — particularly Alex Caruso — to try to steady things.
This was a fun conversation and I hope you all enjoy it. Listen to the full episode below:
