Well, this sucks

Several hours before tip-off against the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night, my colleague and Lakers blogfather Darius Soriano wrote a better recap of this loss than I could, even after having watched every ugly minute of it.

I’m going to be honest, I do not expect the Lakers to win a game over the next week (or more) while LeBron James is out. With Bron joining THT, Ariza, and Nunn in street clothes, the Lakers do not have enough forwards or ball handling to trot out lineups you should expect to have success over the course of a 48 minute game.
