Lakers first meetings with Spurs, Celtics, Blazers all on the road?
Thought L.A may start at home to be honest...will be a good early test to win on the road in places all very tough to win.
Guess the difference from last year is that playing in San Antonio and Boston are not on back to backs. That should give them a better chance at winning both on the road there. Although Lakers won in Boston on a back to back after playing Toronto the night before.
Be interesting if adding Artest can be the good luck charm in L.A finally winning in Portland at the first time at asking.
