NBA: Preseason-Portland Trail Blazers at Utah Jazz Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s kick off the 2016-17 NBA season! The Portland Trail Blazers open up at home, hosting the pesky Utah Jazz tonight. The Blazers are expected to use their preseason starting lineup, with Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum, Moe Harkless, Al-Farouq Aminu and Mason Plumlee. Utah is already fighting the injury bug; Gordon Hayward (broken finger), Derrick Favors (IT Band Syndrome), and sixth man Alec Burks (knee rehabilitation) are still recovering according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Need a little something extra to get you in the mood for basketball? Let’s kick off opening night with a little Roundball Rock courtesy of a live performance from composer John Tesh.
