The Portland Trail Blazers game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday, 4/19/2018, will be broadcast in some areas of the Pacific Northwhest on NBC Sports Northwest only. For the rest of the country, the game will be broadcast on NBA TV as advertised. Please see the relevant section on post-season games from our article on sports blackouts below:
The NBA Playoffs consists of four rounds of games. Games during the first two rounds may be televised locally, regionally or nationally. During these first two rounds, games televised nationally may be blacked out on the national network and shown on a local station or regional network. Games during the third round are shown exclusively on ESPN or TNT, and the NBA Finals are shown exclusively on ABC. Games in the final two rounds are not subject to any blackouts. The schedule is sometimes not determined until the last minute, as one day's schedule sometimes depends on the outcome of the previous day's game(s).
