Sunday’s finale vs. Nuggets at @ModaCenter is scheduled for 6 p.m. By then, you figure both teams will know what they need to do.— Casey Holdahl (@CHold) May 13, 2021
The announcement comes after the league had originally said that all fifteen games played on Sunday would be scheduled between noon and 3:30pm Eastern Time, and that the six games contested on Saturday would be scheduled in the same time frame, but then walked that announcement back after feedback from both teams and player health officials.
The Blazers face the Phoenix Suns on the road this evening before returning home to Portland to play Denver. The Blazers must win at least one of their remaining games in order to cement the sixth seed and avoid the play-in tournament. Though the Blazers have struggled in recent weeks, they have made a solid push towards the playoffs.
The game against the Nuggets will be broadcast on NBC Sports Northwest.
