Per a conversation started in a thread today between erastus25, bustabucket and jstamp26, this thread is dedicated to your first game. Here is my first, my most memorable, and the one I had tickets if I wanted, but regrettably had to work....
My first was nothing like jstamp26, and was recent as I had just moved into the area in late 2008. So in March of '09, after settling in, went to Blazers v Pacers [3-4-09] and watched BRoy, for the first time in person, as he put up 28 and the Blazers won.
For the most memorable games I've been to in person: Blazers v Bulls [11-23-09] watching Oden destroy the Bulls..... sigh. Also Blazers v Lakers in '11 [Ger-ald Wal-lace chants were notable], and also Lillards first ever NBA game in '12.
The game I had to work so turned down the tickets handed to me: Playoffs, game 5, 2011, Blazers v Mavericks when Roy went off in the 4th. I'm still so unbelievably mad about missing it I haven't turned down opportunities to see a game since.
So there you go: What's yours??
