    NBA Playoff Schedule

    I realize that the NBA is pretty much a joke, but they don't help themselves with their playoff schedule. I realize they might be trying to work towards better ratings, but this is ridiculous.

    They're actually still trying to finish the first round with game 7 of Hawks-Bucks tonight while the Jazz-Lakers plays game 1 tonight as well. And the Celtics and Cavs just tipped off game 1 last night already.

    The Jazz and Lakers play again on Tuesday night for Game 2, and then don't play game 3 until Saturday night. Meanwhile, the Spurs-Suns series starts tomorrow night and gets game 3 played by Friday night, which means one off day in between both games.

    Meanwhile, the NHL, which started round 2 yesterday, will have all Game 4's played by Friday night.

    I'm not the biggest NBA fan, but this just makes me hate it even more.

    I love that every playoff game is on, but it is a little ridiculous

    Re: NBA Playoff Schedule

    Id rather have them start as soon as the match up is set with a day or 2 to get ready than wait for all the series to finish before starting the next round

    Re: NBA Playoff Schedule

    The NHL is on an every-other-day schedule for all of their series. It's awesome. Two games every night, and the entire conference semifinal round (even if all the series go 7 games) is done in 2 weeks. None of this 3 or 4 days between games crap.

    Game 1. Off-day. Game 2. Travel day. Game 3.....

    Re: NBA Playoff Schedule

    Question about NHL. If a series wraps up earlier than another, don't they have to wait until all series finish to begin the next round? Example, if one series finishes in 4, and another in the same round finishes in 7, does the first series winner have to wait like a week to begin playing again?

    Yes, they have to wait because they re-seed after each round (which really only matters after the first round).

    They don't actually 're-seed', they just wait to set the match-ups based off the remaining seeds so the high seed gets the advantage all the way through. I wish the NBA did it this way too.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Yeah, you are right, I just meant that the matchups are re-set based on seed, and brackets do not hold.

    It could happen...maybe. Didn't the NHL just start this in the last 10 years or so? Or maybe when they moved from 4 divisions to 6.

    Reseeding the final four would make Bracket Pools a mess. . .
