Trail Blazers visit Lakers, both looking to shake slump

The Los Angeles Lakers are buried in their worst slump of the season as they enter Friday's matchup against the visiting Portland Trail Blazers.

The Lakers have dropped four straight games and five of six since Anthony Davis was lost to an Achilles injury. Los Angeles also has slipped to third in the Western Conference behind the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers.

In fact, the Lakers were no competition for the conference-leading Jazz on Wednesday as they trailed by as many as 29 points while being steamrolled 114-89 in Salt Lake City.
