It’s unclear at this point if this will be played in Portland or Sacramento, but the opposition looks solid. Based on the tweet, the game appears to be in Sacramento, but this is unconfirmed at the time of publication.
The opening night game is a rematch of last season where the Kings beat the Blazers 124-121. Harrison Barnes scored a career-high 36 points, while C.J. McCollum had 34 of his own, but it wasn’t enough for the Blues to pull one out to start the season.
Hopefully for the Blazers, this upcoming season will bring a different result.
