    Scheduling is Funny....NBA and NHL

    The NBA puss balls take a week off in between their games and then when finally back we got the NBA and Hockey overlapping each other.

    It's because The Finals are scheduled (due to making sure they get prime TV spots) to start on May 30th. If the both series go 5 games then they could have almost a week off before it begins. It's all about the TV $$$$$$$$$$$$$.

    Was referring more to the start time. Could have 1 game in the afternoon, and the other in the evening.

    There will always be conflict from conference finals on forward because all games will be at night. Last NBA afternoon game was NBA East Game 1 and last NHL afternoon game was last round.

    Actually no conflict during the finals with games on different days, but these leagues always go head-to-head during conference finals.

    Tomorrow's game should be an afternoon game.

    Last year in the West final game one was an afternoon affair

    Because 3 days rest ? Nobody talks about James harden going 3-15 fg after 1 day rest ? Product is better with more rest -

    Blowouts happens - there is a few reason for spreading out games ? 1.marketing 2. Product - why does the super bowl take 2 weeks off? Nothing adds more viewers then build ups

    Yeah, because less people would watch if teams played every other day, with 2 days off for travel days.
