In case you were wondering how the Portland Trail Blazers were celebrating Thanksgiving right in the middle of a grueling road trip, Peter Socotch and Jamie Hudson from NBCSports Northwest have you covered. In a holiday slideshow, they chronicle the team festivities, including a generous invitation from Oakland native Damian Lillard.

“I invited everybody because we going to be in my hometown and my family do like a big Thanksgiving thing every year whether I’m there or not. I invited everybody to come to the neighborhood if they want,” Lillard told reporters.

The Blazers are in town to face the Golden State Warriors, which makes the event a natural. The snippets also highlight newly-engaged CJ McCollum’s holiday plans, Evan Turner’s charity work, and the odd tastes of Portland’s young players.
