Halftime: Blazers 61, Lakers 38

PORTLAND, Ore. — Let’s, see, the Lakers return to the Rose Garden on April 10. Maybe they can break their four-year losing streak then. Because they sure aren’t breaking much of anything tonight against the Portland Trail Blazers. The Lakers can’t shoot, can’t defend and can’t rebound. Otherwise, they look great. The Lakers set a season low with 38 points in the first half, breaking the 40 they scored in a loss to the Denver Nuggets on Feb. 27. They shot 38.5 percent compared to 58.5 percent for the Trail Blazers. Travis Outlaw scored 17 points in a reserve role, outscoring the Lakers’ bench by 10 points.
