The NBA preseason comes to an end Friday night with seven games on the schedule, including the Warriors hosting the Blazers in a playoff rematch. Golden State won that series in five games, as their offensive firepower proved to be too much for Portland even with Stephen Curry playing at less than full strength. Both teams have made important changes to their rotations, with Golden State adding Kevin Durant and Zaza Pachulia and Portland signing Evan Turner while also re-signing key members of their rotation (Maurice Harkless and Allen Crabbe).

This game, and the six others on Friday’s schedule, will be of greater importance to those still looking to sew up a spot on the 15-man roster, with the deadline for teams to set their rosters for the regular season being October 24.

Below are the tip-off times and television listings for Friday’s games. All times are Eastern.
