The Los Angeles Lakers scored 80 points in the first half of Game 4 against the Portland Trail Blazers.

It is the most points they’ve scored in a playoff half since the 82 they had against Denver in 1987.

LeBron James led the way with 22 points and the Lakers hold a commanding 80-51 lead at the half. The Blazers have plenty of fire power with Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum but it would take a miraculous comeback for Portland to win this one. If they can’t comeback, the Lakers will take a 3-1 lead in the series.

Game 5 will be Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. (Eastern Time).
