After dropping Game 1 to Portland in the bubble Tuesday night, in one of the worst offensive performances of the season, the Lakers got off to a quick start Thursday in Game 2, eventually cruising to a 111-88 win over the Trail Blazers. Series tied, 1-1. Anthony Davis led the way, answering (for one night at least) a ton of questions about his readiness to be a playoff hero.
Andy and Brian break down what was different about A.D. specifically, and the Lakers more generally.
From there... Does it matter that LeBron is struggling to finish at the rim? Where can Frank Vogel turn for lineup changes if they're needed? And might the continuing offensive struggles of Danny Green - 5 of 18 from the floor after two games, extending some bad bubble mojo - be one of the things to force his hand?
