Sixers vs. Trail Blazers game preview: Lineups, how to watch, broadcast info

The Philadelphia 76ers return home on Friday to play host to the Portland Trail Blazers, and if you’re wondering how you can watch all the action live, you’ve come to the right place. The matchup marks the return of Matisse Thybulle after Philadelphia sent him to Portland at the deadline.

The Blazers have not had the greatest season as they are hovering around the edge of the play-in tournament entering this contest, but they do offer up a big challenge in the form of Damian Lillard. The dynamic guard is so tough to stop when he gets on a roll and the Sixers will have to be ready for him. They also will have to rely on Joel Embiid to once again lead the way in this one as he did in the matchup in Portland back in January.

Here’s when and where you should tune in to see the matchup:
