Tom Kinslow@@TomKinslowChief Writer IVApril 5, 2017

Despite a shaky second half of the season, the Portland Trail Blazers have started to rebound.

Portland has won its last five games and reestablished itself as a contender in the Western Conference, chasing the Oklahoma City Thunder for the top spot and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.

The Los Angeles Lakers, however, have not recovered from an injury-ravaged season and sit well outside the postseason picture.

To catch the Thunder and maintain consistency in a competitive playoff picture, the Blazers needed to win Monday's game.

Watch the video for full highlights.
