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