It doesn't matter the time or the season... but when the Lakers come to Portland, they leave with a loss. For the 7th straight time-- dating back to February of 05-- the Blazers beat L.A.
On Monday night, they did it very convincingly. But their 111-94 win was overshadowed by a flagrant foul that by Laker's forward Trevor Ariza.....which landed Blazers guard Rudy Fernandez in a Portland hospital overnight.
Here's the latest from the Trail Blazers P.R. staff:
Portland G Rudy Fernandez sustained a soft tissue injury to his right upper chest and side area in the third quarter of Monday night's game vs. the Los Angeles Lakers. X-Rays and CT scan were both negative. Fernandez will be kept overnight at an area hospital for observation. He is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Dallas Mavericks.
