During Portland’s first week of training camp, the Blazers talked about how important their first 10 games will be in order to get off to a good start in this shortened 72-game season.

But the first 10 games won’t be an easy task for Portland, who will face projected playoff teams in seven of its first 10 games.

 

And now with the NBA adopting more of a regional type road schedule, a lot of teams are going to struggle with having to travel and play the Lakers and Clippers back-to-back.

The Blazers visit the Lakers on Dec. 28 and will face the Clippers on Dec. 30 right out of the gate.
