As confident as I am in the Lakers, I can't get away from the fact that both these teams will be very tough to beat.

Blazers more so than Dallas. Dallas really doesn't seem like a problem to me. They shoot way too many jumpers and have no inside presence.

Man, Dallas seems to always get the luckiest bounces on their three's.

They are very deep...and anytime you go against Dirk, it could be a problem.

Not much in the NBA sadder than watching Brandon Roy.

Put 2007 or 2008 Brandon roy on this team and your talking about no team scarier to the lakers than Portland.

Brandon was an elite SG and it's sad to see this happen to a pretty good guy

Nope, Dallas just isn't as good or deep as Portland. Also these teams are identical position for position but portland just has more talent

Batum would make us unstoppable

What a low scoring affair, Blazers scappiness and hustle is paying off though. Portland defense has made it hell for Dirk today.

Hell yeah. Take Artest out and insert Batum, that has been my dream all season long.

Batum may be the best role player in the NBA or close to it.

Can post, shoot, defend, rebound, and dunk over people

He's basically Rudy gay with a unselfish mentality
