    Default Game 1 at Chicago is Saturday at 1 p.m.

    ESPN.com

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=6345347

    The NBA playoffs begin on Saturday with four games on the ESPN/ABC family of networks.

    The Chicago Bulls, the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, will host the eighth-seeded Indiana Pacers at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN.

    ABC, the home of the NBA Finals, will pick up the action at 3:30 p.m. ET with the Miami Heat, the No. 2 seed in the East, hosting the No. 7 Philadelphia 76ers. That game also will air on ESPN Radio.

    ESPN will broadcast two more games on Saturday, with the fifth-seeded Atlanta Hawks visiting the No. 4 Orlando Magic at 7 p.m. ET and a Western Conference playoff game to be determined at 9:30 p.m.

    On Sunday, the New York Knicks will travel to Boston to face the third-seeded Celtics at 7 p.m. That game will air on TNT, which is also broadcasting NBA playoff games.

    Awesome. I always hated having to wait until the 7th or 8th game.

    I figured we'd get the earliest game although in Chicago it would be Noon.

    I prefer daytime games you still get the rest of the day after its over.

    Hasn't been announced but given the usual one day between games in the same city and two days between games where the city moves, that would be the schedule.

    Dear basketball gods,

    Please don't let the first home playoff game in years fall on Thursday.

    Amen

    It will most likely be Thursday night.

    I'm not a big fan of a Saturday 1:00 tip. Just hope next weeks isn't a 1:00 tip - you lose a lot of the playoff atmosphere for an early start time - unless it is a huge playoff game

    In this case, beng just down the road from Chicago, I'd rather have it be a weeknight.

    If Game 4 is Saturday the 23rd the ONLY way I can make it is a 1:00 tip. So, I think you're safe and it will be the night game. Grr grr grr grr.

    Great for people from the Old Continent.
    ESPN - does that have influence on the availability via League Pass?

    I knew all along they would schedule us for the earliest game because noone is interested...10 AM on the west coast. Hopefully game 4 is a evening game so I can pregame

    I just have a slight feeling we are taking game 1.
    Here we come lottery?

    Well, I have to leave for work no later than about 15-10 til 400, so that should work.

    Also, if game 2 is Momday, I'll be free that night.

    However.....

    If game 3 and game 4 are Thursday and Saturday, I can't make either game, or even watch it live.
