Are You Ready, Rip City?

With training camp just around the corner, now is the time to secure your tickets to the most highly-anticipated Trail Blazers games this season at the Moda Center. And outside of being a season ticket holder, there's no better way to make sure you're in the building for all the important games this season than purchasing a partial season ticket pack.

There are three options -- the Big Game pack, the Weekend pack and the Rivals pack -- that allow you affordable monthly payment plan options, the same seat locations for all the games and access to purchase playoff tickets before the general public. Here are some of the most intriguing games from each of the three packs.

BIG GAME PACK (12 games)

Tuesday, November 5 vs Houston Rockets
Don't miss your chance to see one of the first games featuring all-star center Dwight Howard as a member of the Rockets. After losing in the first round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs, the Rockets are considered by many to be a contender for the Western Conference title after adding Howard to a team already featuring James Harden, Jeremy Lin and Portland's own Terrance Jones.

Saturday, December 28 vs Miami Heat
Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the rest of the two-time defending champion Miami Heat will make their first and only regular-season appearance at the Rose Garden just a few days after Christmas. The perfect holiday gift for the NBA fan in your life.

Monday, March 3 vs Los Angeles Lakers
Anyone who has ever been to a Lakers vs Trail Blazers game at the Moda Center knows they're some of the wildest, most intense regular season contests in the NBA. And you can expect that intensity to double this season as the Lakers will make their only visit to Portland in this game, which will surely sellout within minutes when single-game tickets go on sale.

WEEKEND PACK (12 games)

Saturday, November 2 vs San Antonio Spurs
Opening night on a Saturday? What could be better! Don't miss your first chance to see Robin Lopez, Thomas Robinson, Mo Williams, CJ McCollum, Dorrel Wright and the rest of the new Trail Blazers playing their first game in front of their new hometown crowd against the defending Western Conference champs.

Friday, November 22 vs Chicago Bulls
See former NBA MVP Derrick Rose, who missed all of the 2012-13 season due to injury, play live at the Moda Center with the rest of the Chicago Bulls. This will be the first head-to-head matchup between point guards Rose and 2013 NBA Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard, who some have compared to Rose.

Sunday, April 13 vs Golden State Warriors
It has become somewhat of a tradition for the Trail Blazers to hose the Warriors late in the season, and that tradition continues with this, Portland's penultimate game of the season. This game could have huge playoff implications for both teams, so don't miss your chance to help cheer the Trail Blazers to victory.

RIVALS PACK (8 games)

Thursday, December 26 vs Los Angeles Clippers
While the Lakers might be more hated by Trail Blazers fans, the 2013-14 Clippers will undoubtably be the better team from Los Angeles this season. Even though it's the day after Christmas, don't expect "Lob City" to be warmly welcomed in "Rip City."

Tuesday, February 11 vs Oklahoma City Thunder
While the "I-5 Rivalry" might be dead, but the residual animosity from when the Thunder were known as the SuperSonics is still alive and well. Between regret about missing out on drafting Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook's willingness to play the role of the villain, this game has all the makings of a rowdy Moda Center affair.

Sunday, March 30 vs Memphis Grizzlies
A fellow small-market team, the Grizzlies made it to the Western Conference Finals in 2013, a goal that probably didn't seem attainable just a few seasons ago. Long story short: the Grizzlies are where the Trail Blazers want to be, and one way to get there is to prove your better on the court.
