    PORTLAND, Ore. – The Portland Trail Blazers will tip-off their 42nd NBA season by hosting the Philadelphia 76ers as part of a three-game home stand, marking the third straight year the team has opened at the Rose Garden.

    All 66 Trail Blazers games (33 home, 33 away) will be aired on the Trail Blazers Broadcast Television Network or national carriers. Portland’s complete broadcast schedule will be available in the coming days.

    Portland plays seven of its first 10 games at home and closes the season by playing five of its last six on the road. The schedule includes a six-game road trip (Jan. 13-21) and a season-high, seven-game trip (March 7-18).

    The Trail Blazers will face each Western Conference opponent at least three times, including four contests with Golden State, the L.A. Clippers, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, Sacramento and Utah.

    Each of Portland’s four Northwest Division opponents will visit the Rose Garden twice. The Trail Blazers will make two trips to both Oklahoma City and Utah, while visiting Minnesota and Denver just once.

    Portland will play 18 games against Eastern Conference opponents (nine home, nine away). The Trail Blazers will face each Eastern Conference opponent at least once, including two games against Atlanta, Milwaukee and Washington.

    The 66-game schedule features two back-to-back-to-back scenarios (Jan. 23-25, Feb. 14-16) and 16 back-to-back games.

    Among the top teams making the trip to the Rose City in 2011-12: the defending NBA champion Dallas Mavericks on April 13; the defending Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat on March 1 and the Western Conference rival L.A. Lakers on Jan. 5.

    The Trail Blazers close out the 2011-12 NBA regular season at Utah on Thursday, April 26.
