The Portland Trail Blazers 2018-19 schedule has been released. The Blazers will open the regular season against LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, October 18th, then close the season on April 9th and 10th against those same Lakers and the Sacramento Kings.

Portland’s first three weeks are tough. After the Lakers they draw the San Antonio Spurs and Washington Wizards. The Indiana Pacers, Houston Rockets, and New Orleans Pelicans also appear in the first eight outings.

Portland will face a four-game road swing in late October, a six-game trip in mid-November, and seven consecutive games on the road straddling February and March. Between February 10th and March 5th, the Blazers will play 9 of 10 games away from home. March concludes with a final four-game swing. Those four stretches mark the only extended road trips of the season.

Neither the Blazers nor any other NBA team will play four games in five nights.’s Ben Golliver highlights other league-wide features of the schedule.
