It started as a close Game 3 for the two teams until the Lakers sped up in the second half. Anthony Davis was off to a slow start but picked up in the latter part of the game. He recorded 29 points, 8 assists, and 11 rebounds that led the team to the finish line. The duo- LeBron and AD- were perfectly controlling the first and second halves of the match, respectively.

Alex Caruso was another impressive highlight of Lakers’ performance. Caruso defended his way through the fourth quarter as he focused his skills on Damian Lillard. Blazers’ big man was playing with a dislocated index finger but still added 34 points to their defeat.

CJ McCollum, who scored 28 points, looked like he could take the Blazers to the lead, but in vain. The Lakers went forward in a flash and clinched a 14-point lead towards the end of the match. The series is 2-1 with Lakers on the upper hand.

After a tremendous Game 1, Blazers didn’t seem promising, followed by an unfortunate injury of their best player. Is it a downfall for them from here on, or are they looking for a comeback in Game 4?
