Trail Blazers Could Reach Profitability Goal This Year With Long Postseason Run
Published April 28, 2014
PACKING THEM IN: The OREGONIAN's Brettman reports the Trail Blazers for Game 4 of the team's first-round playoff series against the Rockets last night "sold out their supply of 560 standing-room only tickets well before" the 9:30pm ET start. Team officials were "anticipating a sell-out and final attendance approaching or matching" the 20,302 fans that attended Game 3 Friday night (Portland OREGONIAN, 4/28). Meanwhile, the team "typically keeps a handful of tickets set aside for celebrities at all games." Among those scheduled to attend Game 3 were U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Portland native and Lions DT Ndamukong Suh, and NFL prospect and former Oregon State WR Brandin Cooks. It has been "at least two years" since Nike co-Founder & Chair Phil Knight attended a Blazers game (OREGONLIVE.com, 4/25).
