Since my only source for Pacers basketball is a fuzzy reception from WB4, I'm hoping they'll broadcast the next round. Does anyone know if they are going to carry the games?

Very Doubtful you'll see any more games on Channel 4 this year

Yes, they'll cover the next round, and any ECF games carried by ESPN and not ABC.

Strange, why is it only listed with the ESPN games?

"Is channel 4 covering the TNT games?"

I don't know, I do know during the regular season TNT has exclusive rights, no local team can broadcast a TNT game. Not sure if that carries over to the playoffs.

From what I have seen so far from looking at schedules , Channel 4 is not covering any TNT games as for the reason you mention TNT has exclusive rights.

I'm not sure since that's related to TNT's "exclusive" Thursday coverage. I'd think the NBA would want those games on local TV but blacked out on cable/ satellite dish (forcing viewers to watch TNT's broadcast if possible.)
