Portland Trail Blazers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder: Time, TV, Discussion!

Can the Blazers handle a young, but super-talented team?

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Miami Heat Jim Rassol-USA TODAY Sports

The Portland Trail Blazers have a difficult task this evening, taking on an Oklahoma City Thunder lineup featuring Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Chet Holmgren, neither of which Portland is prepared to deal with. But the Blazers have a little bit of defense, a lot of hope, and at least one Shaedon Sharpe. How will it turn out? We’ll have to see together.
