The Portland Thorns will host Seattle Reign FC at 4:00pm PDT, rather than the originally scheduled start time of 7:00pm, the Thorns announced today.


With the Portland Trail Blazers hosting the San Antonio Spurs in Game 3 of the NBA's Western Conference Semifinals at 7:30pm across the river at the Rose Quarter, the Thorns decided to move the game up to avoid a scheduling conflict.
