Below is the Portland Trail Blazers 2018-19 Regular Season Schedule.
The first month-and-a-half of the season is streaky in regards to home and away match ups. The Blazers open with three home games, followed by a four-game eastern/central road swing. After a six-game home stand, they are back on the road for six straight. The schedule becomes less streaky from there.
Portland opens the regular season on October 18 with a home date against the rival Los Angeles Lakers, who will feature newly signed LeBron James. The Blazers and Lakers face off three times in the first three weeks, with the first two of those taking place in the Rose City. After visiting the Lakers on November 14, the teams to not meet again until April 9; the second to last game of the season. The Blazers close out the regular season at home against the Sacramento Kings on April 10.
The Blazers' longest home stand is their first road trip, spanning six games from November 1 to November 11. They are also at home for five straight from January 4 to January 11. Their longest road trip is seven games from February 21 to March 5. That trip immediately follows the All-Star Break, which is scheduled for February 14 to February 20.
The schedule also features two morning games (pacific time), both on the same road trip. Portland Plays the Philadelphia 76ers on February 23 at 10 a.m., and the Charlotte Hornets on March 3 at 10 a.m.
The home/away monthly breakdown is as follows.
October - 3 home, 4 away
November - 9 home, 6 away
December - 9 home, 6 away
January - 9 home, 6 away
February - 3 home, 6 away
March - 6 home, 9 away
April - 3 home, 3 away
Portland faces 13 back-to-backs in 2018-19. Eight of those come on with away-and-away games, four on home-and-home games, and one on a road-and-home situation. The NBA regular season starts about a week-and-a-half earlier than last season and ends roughly a week earlier. This season, the league has eliminated situations where a team plays four games in five nights on a road trip.
Of Blazer players on the 2017-18 roster, now with other teams, return trips to Portland this season are as follows:
Pat Connaughton (G), Milwaukee Bucks - November 6
Noah Vonleh (F), New York Knicks - January 7
Shabazz Napier (G), Brooklyn Nets - March 25
The Blazers' pre-season schedule is five games, down from six last season and seven in several previous seasons. For the first time, the pre-season begins in September, with a trip to Toronto on the 29th to face the Raptors. After a match up against the Suns in Phoenix on October 5, the Blazers' final three games are at home against the Utah Jazz, Suns and Sacramento Kings.
Portland won the Northwest Division title in 2017-18 and entered the playoffs as the number three seed behind the Houston Rockets and eventual champion Golden St. Warriors. They were swept in the first round by the New Orleans Pelicans, whom they face for the first time of the season on November 1 in Portland. In what has become known as the wild west in the NBA, the Blazers will vie for a playoff spot once again; perhaps even home court advantage in the first round of the post season.
The Blazers play their home games at the Moda Center at the Rose Quarter in northeast Portland. For this schedule, all times are pacific time. Nationally broadcast games are noted in parenthesis. All Blazers games in 2018-19 will be broadcast live on NBC Sports Northwest. Home games are listed in bold red. Updated results will appear bold for wins and italics for losses.
Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum are looking for a successful 2018-19 NBA season.
