The Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Lakers will resume their first round series of the NBA Playoffs on Thursday, August 29th, 2020 at 6pm, PT. The game will be broadcast on NBC Sports Northwest and TNT.
Originally scheduled for Wednesday, August 26th; Game 5 between the Blazers and Lakers was postponed in protest of the shooting of Jacob Blake. After the Milwaukee Bucks and Orlando Magic refused to play in their first round matchup during the day, every other NBA game was also put on hiatus.
No games have been played on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday.
The NBA, as well as numerous NBA fans and teams, have put out support for the players in their protests.
