Kerry Eggers

Interesting #blazers schedule for '14-15. 16 nationally televised games are a lot. Plus 9 of first 12 games are at home. Open 10-29 at OKC

Jim Taylor

Rockets' get one fewer game against past 2 playoff opponents. Their 3-game Western Conference opponents: Lakers, Blazers, Kings, Thunder.

Mike Tokito

#Blazers' longest road trip is five games, and they have two of those. March looks brutal, with 10 of 16 games on road.

John Denton

#Magic have a 5-game, 13-day stretch at home from March 20--April 1. Home games are against: #Blazers, #Nuggets, #Hawks, #Pistons & #Spurs

Mike Tokito

And: Dallas' 5th game of season is at #Blazers. New Mav Raymond Felton is suspended for first 4 games, so his season debut is at Moda Center

Mike Tokito

Also notable is the longer All-Star break. AS Game is Feb. 15, #Blazers return to action Feb. 20 at Utah.

Mike Tokito

#Blazers close season at G.S., home vs. Utah, then at OKC and at Dallas. Tough finish.

Sean Highkin

Blazers had crazy luck with injuries but they also don't have any obvious red flags there. I'm not super-optimistic Bogut plays 67 again.

Blazers at 4th in #ESPNForecast is shocking. Think healthy Warriors and Grizzlies teams are clearly better.
