Thanksgiving weekend is the biggest sports weekend of the year. This is just as true for basketball as it is for football – and for Portland Trail Blazers fans, the NBA game is the only game in town. Tickets for the Lakers-Trail Blazers game sold out months ago, so the only sources for the best NBA tickets are third party and reseller sites like The Portland-LA matchup is particularly hot, partly because the two franchises have such a long and storied history. Since 1977, the Trailblazers have faced the Lakers in more than 205 regular season games and more than 45 playoff games. In addition, the two teams have met in the Western Conference Finals three times, sparking an intense on-field rivalry that matches some of the hottest NBA rivalries of all time.

This is a key year for the Portland Trail Blazers. The team rebounded from a mediocre 2012 season to clean up the court during the 2013-2014 season and score their first playoff series victory since 2000. The Trail Blazers held onto that rebound to capture the team’s first Northwest division title, earning them even more love from the team’s already fanatic fans.
