Damian Lillard Wills Blazers Over Lakers 106-101

The Portland Trail Blazers welcomed fans to the Moda Center for the first time this season and earned maybe their most important win so far, holding on to defeat the limping Los Angeles Lakers 106-101 Friday night.

With the victory, the Blazers improve to 38-29 and gain sole possession of 6th place in the West, one full game ahead of the Lakers. They also hold the head-to-head tie-breaker for the season against the Lakers in the event of a direct tie for seeding position in the 2021 NBA Playoffs.

Damian Lillard was exceptional, honoring the Rip City faithful with a 38-point gem to go along with 7 assists and 2 steals.
