Why are the Lakers and Suns not playing until Monday while Boston and Orlando play on Sunday? The Suns and Lakers have been ready to play for the better part of the week, and the Celtics just got finished their series. What is up with this? Does anybody know the reason for the timing of this? It just seems weird, I mean, I know that the NBA doesnt want to have playoff games when the WNBA starts it season, and that is Saturday, but the Suns and Lakers could have played tonight, or at least started Sunday and let Boston/Orlando start on Monday since Boston just finished their series....

It just doesn't seem to make any sense to me.

ABC will have the ECF, so they want to make sure they can get in their series on the weekend so they get as many viewers as possible while for TNT it doesn't matter that much since its on cable anyway.

It sucks the Celtics have to play such a tough turn-around, but thats just the business.

Agreed. And no disrespect to the Magic or Celtics, but I'd think the NBA would want the more exciting matchup with Phoenix and LA, on Sunday
Then again, Game 3 of the Suns/Lakers goes up against the LOST series finale. Who's the idiot who decided that one. :pity:

How is LA vs Phoenix more exciting?

Besides Lakers are on ABC all the time. Orlando has yet to even play on ABC this postseason.

Somebody help me out on this. Was it always going to take place on Sunday? Meaning, if Cavs extended the series, game 7 would of been Saturday, meaning the winner of game 7 wouldn't have 24 hours before playing a new series?

The fact that both teams have 3 days off between games 2 and 3 is even stupider.

No, it was Game 7 of Cavs-Celtics on Sunday OR Game 1 of the ECF.
Had it gone to Game 7, then Game 1 would have been on Tuesday.

No. It was either Game 7 Sunday at 3:30 EST or Game 1 Sunday at 3:30 EST.

Boston and Orlando is no doubt going to be the more exciting series. I'm telling you guys now, the Suns-Lakers series is not going to be as exciting as some think. The Lakers will be looking for the sweep.

I though the suns and lakers would play first. It makes sense, since they both finished early but ye, it's weird.

Down here in LA we got some KISS FM thing going on at staples my girl is working for them. They needed time to clean up and restore
