    If that's the case Jon Barry should NEVER be allowed to do Bulls games ever again.

    Why can Mark Jackson be on the crew for the Knicks game, different network, different policy?

    I keep seeing this stuff about TNT not letting Reggie do our games, is that purely because he played here? Are they afraid he'll be more of a homer than Kerr will be for the bulls? Has anyone seen or heard this as a fact or is it all just rumor?

    I don't think that is the case at all. There have been 4 games played and one was on ESPN and another was on NBATV. So two have been on TNT TNT has 5 sets of announcers, so I think it just hasn't worked out.

    I think TNT would be more than willing to have Reggie do the games.

    I'm glad Boston completed the sweep so we didn't have another 9:30 start.

    TV ratings continue to soar. There is some local tv ratings in this article. Most teams are also broadcasting the games, but the pacers are not, so the TNT rating all that watched the game locally.

    http://www.sportsmediawatch.net/2011...-up-50-on.html

    Overnight ratings increased substantially for the second weekend of the NBA Playoffs on TNT.

    Sunday's NBA Playoff doubleheader on TNT averaged a 3.9 overnight rating, up 50% from last year's comparable coverage (2.6).

    In particular, Lakers/Hornets Game 4 drew a 4.6 overnight, up a whopping 84% from last year (DEN/UTA G4: 2.5), and up 109% from 2009 (POR/HOU G4: 2.2). The TNT broadcast drew a 17.7 rating in New Orleans and a 9.7 in Los Angeles.

    The 4.6 overnight matches Game 1 of the series one week earlier, which aired on broadcast network ABC.

    Earlier in the night, the Hawks' Game 4 win over the Magic earned a 3.3 overnight, up 22% from last year (DAL/SA G4: 2.7), and up 83% from 2009 (ORL/PHI G4: 1.8). The TNT telecast earned a 6.2 in Atlanta and a 5.0 in Orlando.

    On Saturday, TNT averaged a 2.7 overnight for an afternoon doubleheader, also up 50% from last year (1.8).

    First, the Pacers' season-saving win over the Bulls drew a 2.8 overnight, up 87% from last year (ORL/CHA G3: 1.5). TNT's coverage drew a 9.8 in Indianapolis and a 6.3 in Chicago.

    Later in the day, the Trail Blazers' stirring comeback win over the Mavericks earned a 2.7 overnight, up 35% from last year (PHX/POR G4: 2.0), and up 108% from 2009 (SA/DAL G4: 1.3). TNT's coverage earned a 5.3 in Dallas and a 4.9 in Portland.

    Keep in mind when viewing the local numbers that first round NBA Playoff games on TNT and ESPN co-exist with local broadcasts in the home markets.

    (Numbers from Turner Sports)

    Those numbers looked way better than I expected. I'm guessing that could be the reason so many locals weren't at the game - they stayed home and watched. At least they are watching.

    I hope the Pacers can get one more win to push those fans on the fence onto the Pacers bandwagon for game 6 and next season.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Actually, I was really hoping for the late start, as I'm on a plane to Toronto at 8:30 (cue Kirk screaming 'Kaaahhhhnnn!').

    Figure off the plane by 9:30, should be able to catch the fourth near/at the hotel (if I can find a non-hockey tv somewhere unless the room gets TSN 2... equiv of ESPN 2).

    Otherwise, I'll chalk it up to taking one for the team karma-wise.

    Can't tell by the thread, but I take it folks started dogging the guys out due to the Bulls fast start, or complaining about something and it quickly got out of control
