Colin Cowherd: “I think Portland will beat the Lakers… I don’t think there is a path tougher for the Lakers than the one they’re going to get. They’re going to get Portland, and then they’re probably going to get Houston, then they’re going to get the Clippers. It is a three-point shooting league – do you wanna know who the three top three-point shooting teams in the Bubble are? HOUSTON, PORTLAND, CLIPPERS, and they’re going to get all three… It is officially a ‘hot take’ to say the Lakers are going to win the championship. I like the Lakers, but seeding matters, path matters, and schedule matters… When Avery Bradley opted out and Rondo was injured, we came on the air that day and said how significant it was. Avery Bradley was their best defensive guy, and now they have nobody to guard these guys like Dame, Harden, and maybe CP3.” (Full Segment Above)
