The Portland Trail Blazers are at home in the Moda Center tonight, taking on the Los Angeles Lakers. It’s a big game for a lot of reasons — one being that after over a year, fans are finally back in the building. While it’s at a low capacity, having Rip City back in the arena is sure to add to the Blazers’ energy. Tonight is also a big game as the Lakers and the Trail Blazers are both fighting to avoid the play-in tournament. Tonight’s game will have a big impact on who advances safely to the playoffs and who fights for their spot in the play-in. It’s a big game tonight, and Portland needs the win.

We also want to remind you of our Game Day thread guidelines:
- 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
That’s it! Have fun and Go Blazers!
