    Tough game tonight on the road vs a team that has at least a little bad blood vs Pacers. You know Curry & GS are gonna hit shots, so my guess, game is won/lost on DREB and TOs.

    By the way, that video is a great reminder of how bad Darren Collison was on the defensive end...

    I hate the 10:30 game times. When there is an eastern time zone team playing on the west coast they really need to schedule those games for 6:30 local time so it airs at 9:30 Eastern. I mean seriously, when will the NBA start showing some intelligence when it comes to scheduling? I mean I doubt playing the game 30 minutes earlier than normal locally probably won't have a big affect on attendance and ratings locally, but playing it 3 hours and 30 minutes later than normal Eastern time is bound to have a huge affect on ratings. Especially on a weeknight.

    And how exactly are us west coasters supposed to get to the arena by 6:30 PM?

    If it makes you feel any better, all the pacers games start at 4:30 PM my time when I'm still at work. I either miss the first half or wait and watch the whole thing on delay.

    I'm worried the late start will have an impact on our energy level.

    Heat lost to the the Hawks today. Time to capitalize and grow that lead for HCA! Looking for a tough game down to the wire.

    The same way you get there at 7, just you leave a half hour earlier. It isn't like the league at 6pm would suddenly be saying, "SURPRISE! Instead of the normal 7pm time we are pushing the game up to 6:30, hope you can make it in time!" No instead you will know well ahead of time that the game is at 6:30, and can plan accordingly. If it really takes you 2 hours to get from work to the game just in time for the tip-off normally, and you have an unreasonable boss, well tough luck. Either don't buy the tickets, or arrive late. Overall I doubt they will actually sell less tickets, or have worse attendance, but I bet the Pacers ratings on nights where they play at 10:30 are consistently much lower than normal. Which means the advertisers are probably not willing to pay as much as usual, meaning the Pacers and the NBA might be missing out on what could be a decent chunk of change, that they might not miss out on if the game started just an hour earlier.

    Apparently you've never driven on the 101 in rush hour traffic.

    Butts in the seats trump the TV schedule, sorry.

    Otherwise, you're cool having your games start at 9pm so I can get home from work first to watch it on Tv right?

    I really don't care if it starts at 9. Although there is a flaw to your logic. You are talking about a few fans versus 10's of thousands of fans. While the other way around we are talking about 10's of thousands versus a couple thousand who might have trouble.


    P.S. Either you live too far away from where you work, or you need to find a new route home.
