The Los Angeles Lakers and the Portland Trail Blazers will both be trying to pick up a win on Thursday when they battle at Moda Center.

ABOUT THE LAKERS (13-25): Some observers see superstar potential in the 22-year-old Randle, and Walton is striving to harness those abilities and see him play at a sustained level. The Kentucky product gets lackadaisical on occasion, and Walton scorched him during Monday’s practice before later calling Randle on the phone to make sure his mood was right — with the evidence on display against the Grizzlies. “Just trying to grow up and just be coachable,” Randle told reporters. “Early, I might pout or whatever and it would throw me off my game. But just trying to be coachable and take it as a challenge or go.”

ABOUT THE TRAIL BLAZERS (15-22): Standout shooting guard C.J. McCollum scored 35 points in the loss to the Warriors and is averaging 31.2 points in the five games Lillard has missed. McCollum has 78 points over the last two games after scoring a career-best 43 against Minnesota on Sunday and tallied 26 points in the first half against the Warriors before scoring just nine of 3-of-12 shooting in the second half. “I just missed some shots. It happens,” McCollum said afterward. “I had a lot of good looks from 3 that I didn’t make and I missed a couple layups. Credit to them, they did a good job defensively.”

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Trail Blazers listed as 6½-point favorites versus the Lakers, while the game’s total is sitting at 218.5 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

The Portland Trail Blazers may again be without star point guard Damian Lillard when they attempt to defeat the Los Angeles Lakers for the ninth consecutive time on Thursday. Lillard sat out the past five games with a sprained left ankle but has been upgraded to “day-to-day.”

Lillard, who averages 27 points per game, again watched from the bench as the Trail Blazers suffered a 125-117 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday. “I’m sure if I wanted to press the issue, I could probably get out there,” Lillard told reporters, “but I’m going to trust what they say and go along with that. (Doctors) are in their position to do their job for a reason and they have my best interests so I’ve got to trust that.” Los Angeles is trying to remain in the Western Conference playoff race and could use more high-octane performances from forward Julius Randle, who had 19 points, 14 rebounds and a career-best 11 assists in Tuesday’s 116-102 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. “It’s been sloppy at times, but it really has slowly been getting better and better and he’s starting to really read what’s available for him, which is great,” Lakers coach Luke Walton told reporters of Randle. “Early in the season, I felt like he was trying to force a little bit, and now he’s doing a much better job of surveying the court and making the appropriate read.”

Portland was a 125-117 loser in its last match on the road against the Warriors. They covered the +16-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 242 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

The Lakers were a 116-102 winner in their most recent outing at home against the Grizzlies. They covered the +4.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (218) made winners of OVER bettors.
