    Default When do the playoffs start?

    Hey guys, I'm leaving town to go to a conference in Montreal all of next week (good timing, huh)? While I'm sure I'll be able to catch a game or two up there, it's doubtful that I'll see all of the Pacer games.

    So, I have a couple of questions. Does anybody know when the first playoff games start, and when will we find out the schedule? I'm hoping to know by Friday so that I can set up my TiVo to catch all the games.

    Also, is there any chance that Game 4 will be AFTER April 29 (Saturday)? For the past few years I've been to at least one Pacers game in every playoff round they've gotten to, and I don't want to take the chance of missing out this year if possible.

    Where are you staying in Montreal? Have fun, it's a great place if you've never been there before.

    In fact, you should be there right around the time my buddy is getting there for basic training. Actually he's beyond basic training by now...but yeah. There will be lots of them there now that school will be done.

    A good bet is if we play Jersey it will be Saturday night - Miami would be a Sunday game.

    No they can't play on Saturday. The New Jersey Devils have a hockey game scheduled for 3:00 Saturday 4/22. So the Nets will have to play Sunday. Devils and Nets play in the same arena.

    ABC certainly won't pick the Nets vs Pacers for their 3:00 Sunday game. But I think ESPN has a game early Sunday like at 12:30, or TNT has an 8:00 PM game. So look for it at either of those two times.

    See all it takes is a little research

    Im guessing sunday at 12:30, since they wont play a western conference game that early, and its too early for a big-ticket game.

    Do you mean the Nets vs Pacers is not a big-ticket game. That is hard to believe. Actually it has to be the least wanted series, I expect at least two NBATV games.

    When do the Pistons play their first game. Any word out of Detroit. Are there any concerts or other events scheduled this weekend.

    For those in Indy......last season during the Playoffs....were you guys able to catch all the Playoff games on your local Fox Sports MidWest channel?

    If so...I was thinking of ordering the Sports Channel Package for DirectTV for a month so that I can get that channel.

    Fall out Boy plays the Palace tomorrow, and after that the schedule is left open until 5/5.

    However, the Wings will play game 2 of their series vs Edmonton in detroit sunday, and the NBA will definately schedule around them.

    I'm reasonably sure the Pistons will play at 3PM saturday 5:30 PM is the only other realistic option.

    Playoff games are not on FSN. The games are either on national TV: ABC ESPN and TNT or locally WB4. A few years ago in a playoff series agianst Boston we didnt sell out any of our home playoff games and one of them got blacked out and was only shown on NBA TV.

    Stupid NBA.....you would figure that they would figure out a way to show ALL the NBA playoffs. Geez....its not like they don't have a fanbase that would pay for it.

    I'm actually a Red Wings fan. The reason for that is because I have family in Deeeetrrroiit are are huge wings fans and I have been to some games over the past few years. It would be cool for the city of Deeeetrrroiit if they reached the Stanley Cup Finals and the Pistons reached the NBA finals because that would mean they would have hostes the Super Bowl and NBA and NHL finals.
