Trail Blazers-Pistons postponed because of winter storm

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) The Portland Trail Blazers’ scheduled game Saturday night against the Detroit Pistons has been postponed until Sunday because of potential severe weather conditions.

The game Sunday at Moda Center is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. PST.

”The safety of our fans and players is always the highest priority, and this decision to delay our home game until Sunday was made with that in mind,” said Chris McGowan, the president and CEO of the Trail Blazers and Rose Quarter. ”Input from the NBA, local government and public safety officials also played a role in our decision to postpone until Sunday.”

No. 5 Gonzaga’s men’s basketball game at Portland, and the Portland Winterhawks’ Western Hockey League game against the Everett Silvertips at Veterans Memorial Coliseum also were postponed. Those makeup dates have not been determined.
