Lakers Roundtable: The Times' Mark Medina and The Columbian's Matt Calkins preview Lakers-Blazers game

February 23, 2011 |  1:44 pm

Among the highlights of my conversation with The Columbian's Matt Calkins about the Lakers-Blazers game:

--Why Portland (32-24) has won six consecutive games and why Calkins has given the Blazers an A on his recent report card.

--Whether LaMarcus Aldridge was snubbed from the NBA All-Star game.

--Medical updates on Brandon Roy and Marcus Camby.

--Whether Portland plans to make any trades before Thursday's deadline.

--Why Calkins believes Portland will lose to the Lakers at the Rose Garden.

--How Portland will finish in the Western Conference standings.

--You can follow Calkins work at The Columbian's website and on Twitter.

-- Mark Medina
