The NBA has officially released the Christmas Day and tip-off schedules for the 2017-18 season, and the Trail Blazers have once again missed the cut for the holiday showcase.

The 2017-18 schedule will open with eight games, and will be featured on both TNT and ESPN.

The Christmas Day schedule will include two Northwest Division teams in the Thunder and Timberwolves.

The last time the Blazers played on Christmas day was back in 2010, when a Monta Ellis-led Warriors team completed a heroic fourth-quarter comeback. The last Portland holiday victory came in the year prior, over the Nuggets—a contest that featured an impressive 41-point outburst from Brandon Roy.

The entire NBA schedule is set to be released next week, according to Sekou Smith of NBA.com. Until then, you can check out Portland's preseason schedule, which was unveiled earlier this month.
