Once the NBA knew the results of the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics First Round series with the Nets taking the series, 4-1, the league announced the Blazers-Nuggets tip-off time for Game 6.
With no Eastern Conference First Round game to worry about on Thursday, the Blazers will have an earlier start time at Moda Center.
Portland and Denver will tip-off Thursday at 5:00p.m. PT on NBC Sports Northwest, the official network of the Portland Trail Blazers.
Thursday could be a deciding game with the series currently tied at 2-2.
With the Blazers storming back from a 22-point first half deficient Tuesday night in Game 5, Denver and Portland are tied at 65 just two minutes into the third quarter.
You can catch the rest of Game 5 now on NBCSNW.
