Horrible effort from the Lakers for both WB and Rondo couldn't hit the broad side of a barn but there
was some ugly BB from both teams in the second quarter. Portland looked like the team playing their
fifth game in seven nights.
Interesting to view these games with Covid still a factor. Still lots of Laker fans in the crowd but even
with the Lakers in town, still plenty of empty seats. I sit in section 319 (half season tickets) any my
entire section was closed off due to a sprinkler problem before the game on open night. Team had
no problem relocating everyone in 319 in mostly better seats on the 200 level which suggests actual
attendance, even for the Lakers is well down. Odd experience watching a game in a mask with even
the rally girls wearing masks None of the usual stuff like giving out T-shirts on opening night is
happening (so far) in the 2021-2 season. It just seems like everything is off for the players have been
griping about the change in basketballs since the start of the season and guys like Dame are not getting
to the line anywhere near as much as they did last season.
