After splitting their first two games of the season, both at home, the Portland Trail Blazers visit the Denver Nuggets at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Saturday night. Looking for a live stream of tonight’s Blazers-Nuggets game? There are a handful of options, depending on where you live and whether you have cable.
The best option for fans in most areas is NBA League Pass, which is offering a free trial through November 1. League Pass games are subjected to blackout restrictions in areas where a team’s local broadcast is available through a cable provider, so it’s not an option for people in the Portland or Denver markets.
