NBA: Utah Jazz at Portland Trail Blazers Craig Mitchelldyer-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA is set to release their slate of Christmas and MLK Day games, along with the opening week’s national TV schedule on Wednesday afternoon.

Portland hasn’t played a Christmas Day game since 2010, when they lost to the Golden State Warriors 109-102.
