Portland's 82-game schedule slated to begin November 3

PORTLAND, Ore. - The Portland Trail Blazers tip-off their 42nd NBA season by hosting the Northwest Division rival Denver Nuggets on Thursday, Nov. 3, marking the third straight year the team has opened the season at the Rose Garden.

All 82 Trail Blazers games will be aired by national carriers or the Trail Blazers Broadcast Television Network. Portland's complete broadcast schedule and preseason schedule will be available in the coming weeks.

Portland plays nine of its first 15 games on the road and closes the season by playing 11 of its last 16 at the Rose Garden. The schedule includes a six-game road trip (Jan. 13-21) and a season-high, seven-game trip (March 7-18).

Among the top teams making the trip to the Rose City in 2011-12: the defending NBA champion Dallas Mavericks on April 13; the Miami Heat on March 1; the rival Los Angeles Lakers on Jan. 24; the Chicago Bulls on Nov. 16 and the Boston Celtics on Dec. 8.

Portland will take on 10 of 14 Western Conference opponents twice at home and twice on the road, while playing Dallas, Golden State, the L.A. Lakers and New Orleans only three times apiece. Of those matchups, the Trail Blazers host Golden State and New Orleans twice, and Dallas and the L.A. Lakers once. The club will face each Eastern Conference team twice.

The Trail Blazers close out the 2011-12 NBA regular season at home on Wednesday, April 18, vs. Utah.
