First-round schedule released: Game 1 Saturday Night…

We all know the NBA Playoffs kick off on Saturday. We now already know when the Blazers will be playing. Game 1 of the first round series between the Blazers and Rockets will tip off Saturday night at 7:30 Pacific. The game will be televised on ESPN (please no Jon Barry). It’s the fourth and final game on the first day of the playoffs. You have to like the ‘main event’ status but also I’m groaning  because of having to wait all day. Also, is anyone else kind of bummed that the first day of the playoffs is TNT-free?!?!  I know I am. Even if Chuck hates the Blazers. Anyways, here is the complete schedule for the first round series, courtesy of the NBA:

Portland vs. Houston
Game 1 – Sat April 18 Houston at Portland 10:30PM ESPN
Game 2 – Tue April 21 Houston at Portland 10:00PM NBATV
Game 3 – Fri April 24 Portland at Houston 9:30PM ESPN
Game 4 – Sun April 26 Portland at Houston 9:00PM TNT
Game 5 * Tue April 28 Houston at Portland TBD TBD
Game 6 * Thu April 30 Portland at Houston TBD TBD
Game 7 * Sat May 2 Houston at Portland TBD TNT
