The 1993–94 season was the 24th season of the Portland Trail Blazers in the National Basketball Association (NBA).[1] The Blazers went 47–35, fourth in the Pacific Division and seventh in the Western Conference. It was their 12th straight trip to the postseason.

The Blazers were knocked out of the playoffs in the first round by a 3–1 margin against the Houston Rockets, who went on to win their first of two straight NBA championships.

Game 4 of that series would be the last playoff game Clyde Drexler would play as a member of the Blazers, the team that drafted him; he would be traded to the Rockets on February 14, 1995 (right before the next season's trade deadline), honoring his wish to be traded to a contender.
