I think the Lakers' plan entering the bubble was to ramp up right away, and go hard. When they lost a couple, and already clinched, they changed their game plan, and have reverted to a protection mode. I don't think they are too worried about their first round opponent, even if it is the Blazers. By the 2nd round, they should be healthy and clicking again. I still think they are team to beat in the West, and only an injury to Lebron or Davis will derail them from making the finals.
