Portland Trail Blazers 2021-22 NBA Schedule: Key Fixtures Against Lakers, Warriors, and More

Published 10/02/2021, 10:34 PM EDT


The Blazers, fortunately, still own the rights to their beloved star Damian Lillard. In fact, there were rumors that they’re willing to push CJ McCollum out and bring in Ben Simmons to help Dame. But that hasn’t materialized,yet.

In the off-season, perhaps the best thing the Blazers organization did was signing former Pistons point guard Chauncey Billups as the coach replacement. Also, they’ll have Ben McLemore, Cody Zeller, and Larry Nance Jr. to improve their rotation.

What are the most important fixtures for the Rip City?

Nov 6 vs Lakers: The Blazers do not have a brutal rivalry with the Lakers, but they do have a recent history that makes the draw interesting. Firstly, the Lakers ripped the Rip City apart in the Orlando Bubble in 2020. Then, the Portland-based side took  revenge by forcing the Lake Show to compete in the play-in tournament after defeating them 106-101 on 7th March, 2021.

Also, the Blazers will face another LA-based franchise, the Clippers, three times in their first 11 games. The Staples Center will get to see tons of Dame Time this year. Then, on November 14th, they’ll face the Nuggets (after losing to them 2-4 in round 1) to take on Nikola Jokic‘s men.

Nov 26 vs Warriors: This will be a great battle after what the world saw in that 62-point performance from Steph Curry. Although chances are slim that Klay Thompson would be back by this time, the game will still be a three-point contest with Logo Lillard around.
