The Portland Trail Blazers will begin their season on October 30th with a game against the Phoenix Suns. It sounds far away, but before Blazers fans know it, the team will be hard at work in its 2013-14 NBA regular season.
The start of the season will be an exciting one for Trail Blazers. They’ve got Damian Lillard returning, and first-round draft pick C.J. McCollum will begin his NBA career. Portland also has Robin Lopez, Earl Watson, Dorell Wright and Thomas Robinson, all of whom will play their first games for Portland come fall.
It’s true that every game—and hence every win and loss—makes a difference, but there are a few games in particular that will be highly anticipated by Portland NBA fans.
