The Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Lakers will resume their 2020 NBA Playoffs series with Game 5, now rescheduled to Saturday, August 29th at 9:00 PM Eastern, 6:00 PM, Pacific. The game will be televised on TNT.

The game was postponed from Wednesday because of protests by NBA playoff participants, advocating for justice, against systemic racism and violence.

The Blazers enter the game down 1-3, needing a win to prolong the series. They’ll play without All-Star point guard Damian Lillard, who exited the playoffs bubble, returning to Portland this week for further examination of an injured right knee.

Shams Charania of The Athletic has the full slate of games for the weekend.
