The Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers series have shifted heavily in favor of the team in purple in gold.
The Lakers took down the Blazers in Game 4 with a 135-115 victory with the series now 3-1 with the Blazers trying to figure out how to stay alive with the deficit being the way it is.
With the tough loss last night, what would our day look like if we did not hear from our good friend and host of Undisputed, Skip Bayless?
Bayless, from the start, has had no faith in the Blazers since the beginning of this playoff series. Obviously, the Damian Lillard encounter on twitter probably added to it before this series started, but Bayless is coming at the Blazers in a disrespectful way.
On Tuesday, Bayless let the Blazers have and did not hold back one bit.
I have no respect for the Portland Trail Blazers — Skip Bayless
Bayless has continually shown no love for the Blazers, or Lillard, since the NBA restart.
What the Blazers did to get into the eighth seed was a special feat to watch, and Lillard winning the bubble MVP should have gained some recognition from the instigative media member like Bayless.
It did not.
It seems Bayless has been stuck on the personal vendetta with Lillard since their twitter showdown and has not slowed down since.
The Blazers Game 1 victory was stunning, and Bayless did not give the Blazers credit when credit was due, and now we are here where the Blazers have one more game to try and fight their way back to try and make this a series.
Will this be the last time we here from the Bayless disrespecting the Blazers? Probably not, but with Zach Collins out for the series with a stress fracture, C.J. McCollum is dealing with a fracture in his lower back, and Damian Lillard added a knee injury to his dislocated finger in Game 4, the Blazers have done everything they could and more to stop the championship favorite from taking this series where it is now.
Bayless will have his fun, but the Blazers proved a lot more to NBA experts then what they had first predicted when the NBA restart started.
