    I guess the league decided the oldmen on the Spurs needed more time to recover.

    Wait, maybe it has to do with Detroit ending their series earlier?

    I guess they'll get better ratings on Monday night than they would on a Saturday or Sunday. Seems stupid to me and I only get to watch 1 game this weekend.

    Glad the game isn't on Saturday night. I'll be in College Station for the baseball game there.

    I'm trying to follow the money here. Could it be that TNT has to have a certain number of games?

    They obviously don't want to compete with the WNBA opening day. [​IMG]

    TNT has the WCF. I'm sure they had some sway with the schedule. So, to meet it, both the Lakers-Jazz winner and the NO-SA winner have (had) to be available to play Monday, if their series were over.

    TV schedule. TNT wanted the WC game. Det-Orl would have been tomorrow had it gone 7 and LA-Utah would have been on Monday had it gone 7.

    NBA didn't want any competition on Saturday with the opening day of the WNBA season.

    The real TV reason is that if the Hornets and Lakers had both won game 6, NO-LAL game 1 would have been in the exact same Monday time slot that is currently taken by SA-NO game 7.
