4-6 is a safe bet. We should get more respect, we are getting more from anylists this year, I think it's our turn to pick up a couple nationally televised games.. Though it's still Indiana with no superstars, so your only gonna have so many in this league.
How many nat'l games did Philly get this season? I think our number next year is going to be similar if we do not clear the first round. If we do go on a nice run and make the 2nd round opponent work... Maybe we get on as many times as Memphis did this year.
At any rate, I just don't see us being on more than a handful of times because we don't have that name on the roster that is "Must see TV"
...Still "flying casual"
And for what I remember the transition defenses were stellar as well.
I am trying to locate a listing of how many times each team was on TNT, ESPN and ABC.
Note this was to have been the schedule if a full season took place. Click on the link to see a complete list of the schedule. Here is the breakdown by team .
Blazers and Warriors were scheduled for too many. The Grizzlies should have been a lot more.
Lakers - 25
Heat - 25
Celtics - 24
Bulls - 24
Mavs - 23
Knicks - 22
Thunder - 19
Magic - 14
Blazers - 14
Spurs - 14
Nuggets - 14
Clippers - 13
Warriors - 10
Suns - 10
Hawks - 8
Grizzlies - 5
Sixers - 5
Jazz - 4
Hornets - 2
Rockets - 2
Raptors - 1
Wizards - 1
Cavs - 1
Bucks - 1
Pistons - 1
Pacers - 1
Kings - 1
T-Wolves - 1
Nets - 0
Bobcats - 0
The Lakers and Heat lead the way in national TV appearances, with 25 each. The Celtics (24), Bulls (23), Mavericks (23), Knicks (22) and Thunder (19) follow.
Twenty-eight of the NBA’s thirty teams are scheduled to make a national TV appearance this season, including the likes of the Kings, Bucks, Timberwolves, Wizards, and even the Pistons.
The only teams left off the national TV slate were the Nets and Bobcats

Another night, another backside-kicking. They just hit you from so many sides, now, in waves. It's like a cavalry, running down hill and trampling you underfoot. You have no tactical advantage, you're just swinging wildly in the mud, and the best strategy might be to play dead.
They are an absolute onslaught right now.

ESPN2 only has had 1 game all season and they were scheduled to have no games if the full season had been played. So why does it matter
In the playoffs ESPN2 will have some games when they already have two on ESPN
But to answer your question ESPN2 is a lot closer to ESPN than NBATV. but is is still not quite ESPN. if ESPN is 100 and NBTV is 10. ESPN2 is about a 90
