NWSB Insider and Portland Trail Blazers blogger Jason Hartzog takes a look at the 2013-14 schedule, giving us his pros and cons. On the plus side, the team starts out the season on KGW. Fans in Rip City who don’t have Comcast will have a chance to see LaMarcus Aldridge and crew open the year against the Phoenix Suns. Unfortunately, it’s not all good news, as Hartzog references a Blazersedge article by Ben Goliver that points out long road trips and back-to-backs.
