Jennifer Stewart-US PRESSWIRE

The Portland Trail Blazers host the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday at 7 p.m. PT at the Rose Garden.

Both franchises are at different stages in their progression toward an NBA championship. The Trail Blazers are back to a rebuilding period, while the Lakers have retooled once again for a chance at the title.

The Lakers have struggled in the Rose Garden since drafting Kobe Bryant in 1996, going 6-24 in Portland over the last 16 years (via Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times). They will also be coming off a back-to-back scenario after playing Dallas on Tuesday night at home.

Here is how the Blazers match up with the Lakers at each position.
