Former NBA player and current analyst Jalen Rose shared his thoughts on who will win the Lakers versus Blazers playoff series.

Portland was the last team in the Western Conference to jump on the playoff ship and some analysts considered them a real threat to the Lakers.

According to Rose, it will take five games to determine the winner of this series and it will be LeBron James and co. who will proceed to the second round.

“As much as I love the Portland Trail Blazers and it’s a feel-good story that they’re in the playoffs. I have news for Stephen A. Smith and everybody else. Lakers in five,” Rose said on ESPN’s Get Up.
