A winter storm will cause the Pistons and Trail Blazers to pass on playing tonight, instead tipping tomorrow evening at 9 p.m. Eastern.
Per Keith Langlois:
#Pistons game at Portland tonight postponed to Sunday, 8 Eastern— Keith Langlois (@Keith_Langlois) January 7, 2017
Keith corrected with his next tweet that it’s actually 9 p.m. Eastern, 6 p.m. Pacific.
The winter storm warning is in effect in Portland until 10 p.m. local time Sunday with snow and freezing rain, so the postponed tip is still right in the middle of that.
The change shouldn’t impact the Pistons much. It’s the start of a five game Western Conference road trip, but the Pistons are off Monday before playing the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday.
