Trail Blazers 2012-13 schedule is set
The Blazersí season will open October 31 with a home game against the Lakers. Those will be a revamped Lakers who have added Steve Nash and rekindled their NBA title hopes.
For Blazers fans, however, what is perhaps the most intriguing matchup comes about three weeks later, when Brandon Roy returns to the Rose Garden on Nov. 23 as a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Roy, one of the best and most beloved players in franchise history, missed last season after retiring because of chronic knee injuries. He is attempting a comeback with Minnesota.
The world champion Miami Heat come to Portland on Jan. 10; the Western Conference champion Oklahoma City Thunder visit Jan. 13 and April 12; and the Lakers return April 10.
