NBA: Preseason-Portland Trail Blazers at Utah Jazz Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

It’s opening night of the 2020-21 NBA Season for the Portland Trail Blazers!!! The Blazers will take on the Utah Jazz tonight, which brings on our very first Gameday Thread of the year! These threads have a rich history. They’re where you connect, discuss the game, and find friends you never knew you had! We publish one for every game, so join us throughout the season!

Here’s the basic info on the game, courtesy of our Game Preview staff:

How to watch on TV: NBCSNW, or see games all season on fuboTV, follow on ESPN+, or the ESPN/Disney Bundle*

Anfernee Simons has been ruled out of tonight’s game.

We also want to remind you of our Gameday Thread guidelines:

And the guidelines for Game Day Threads all season long...

  • Don’t use gifs or videos in Game Day Threads because it slows down the comment section
  • Don’t troll in your comments; create conversation rather than destroying it
  • Remember Blazer’s Edge is basically a non-profanity site
  • Out of respect to broadcast partners who have paid to carry the game, no mentions of “alternative” (read: illegal) viewing methods are allowed in our threads
  • Put your mask on, Coach.

That’s it! Have fun tonight, and Go Blazers!
