The Lakers are up 3-1 on the Blazers. LeBron James and Co. need to win one more game to advance to the second round of the playoffs.
Jacob Blake was shot in Wisconsin by the police despite being unarmed. The Milwaukee Bucks were the first team to postpone their game, and then the Houston Rockets, Oklahoma City Thunder, Lakers and Blazers followed suit.
It will be interesting to see when the games will resume. The NBA announced that these games will be rescheduled. Players are stuck at the Walt Disney bubble until their respective team is eliminated from the playoffs.
