ESPN has added the Portland Trail Blazers vs. Milwaukee Bucks game on January 31st, 2024 to its national broadcast schedule. The game will mark the first return of All-Star guard Damian Lillard to Portland after being traded to the Bucks this off-season. The game replaces the Denver Nuggets versus Oklahoma City Thunder game originally slotted for that evening on the four-letter network.

Sports Media Watch tweeted the news on X:

What’s the best guess as to the reaction in Moda Center when Dame takes the floor? I’m betting heavily on standing ovation with the over/under being two minutes. I’m taking the over too.
