The Lakers were sluggish early, but LeBron James carried them to halftime, and then combined with Anthony Davis to pull away from the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 3 of their first round NBA Playoffs series in the Orlando Bubble.
James and Davis both put up big stat lines, but the Lakers also received significant contributions from Alex Caruso, who played arguably his best game as a Laker, and (in the second half, at least) Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
Andy and Brian break it all down, asking if the Lakers finally looked like a championship caliber team. What does it mean that Caruso played like a traditional point guard? That LeBron started scoring? And this week, how will remembrances of Kobe Bryant impact them?
A Land O'Lakers Live episode recorded after Game 3 Saturday night.
