Shortly after the final games of the NBA season went final tonight, the NBA released the schedules for the first round of the NBA playoffs.  The Clippers vs Blazers series will play out as follows:

Game 1 - Sunday April 17, 7:30 PM PST, TNT/Prime Ticket, Los Angeles, STAPLES Center

Game 2 - Wednesday April 20, 7:30 PM PST, TNT/Prime Ticket, Los Angeles, STAPLES Center

Game 3 - Saturday, April 23, 7:30 PM PST, ESPN/Prime Ticket, Portland, Moda Center

Game 4 - Monday, April 25, 7:30 PM PST, TNT/Prime Ticket, Portland, Moda Center

Game 5* - Wednesday, April 27, Time TBA, TV TBA, Los Angeles, STAPLES Center

Game 6* - Friday, April 29, Time TBA, TV TBA, Portland, Moda Center

Game 7* - Sunday, May 1, Time TBA, TV TBA, Los Angeles, STAPLES Center

*If necessary

This is an interesting schedule, as it gives these teams a lot of rest early in the series.  Both teams will of course have three days off, having played Wednesday night in their regular season closers and starting the post-season Sunday.  After that, there are two days off before game 2, and two more before game 3.  If the Clippers can close this series out early, it would be possible to head into the second round VERY well-rested.
