The Portland Trail Blazers and Houston Rockets will match up in their final game of NBA Summer League 2021 on Tuesday, August 17th at 2:00 PM, Pacific. The game will be played at Thomas & Mack Center on the UNLV campus and televised on ESPNews.

The contest will come as part of a seven-game schedule on the 17th, culminating in the Summer League Championship game between the Sacramento Kings and Boston Celtics at 6:00 PM, Pacific.

Other games include the Mavericks versus Heat, Jazz versus 76ers, Nets versus Raptors, Lakers versus Warriors, and Pelicans versus Timberwolves. The remaining teams will all play on August 16th.

The NBA changed the format of Summer League this season, eschewing the final tournament rounds they had employed in recent years in favor of giving all teams one more shot, with the two leaders playing last for the tournament crown.

The Trail Blazers finished their preliminary games with a 2-2 record, tied with ten other teams.
