The Los Angeles Lakers lost in a disappointing game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Damian Lillard and Hassan Whiteside torched the Lakers all game, as the Lakers have now lost two in a row. They will have to play the second night of a back-to-back tomorrow following this one. Of course, the game was secondary to the night of tributes to Kobe Bryant who passed away on Sunday.
