Lakers playing game 3 and 4 at Staples on Friday and Saturday? Really @NBA? REALLY?!?!
It seems as if the teams that went to 7 will have back-to-backs in the 2nd round.
Neither the BOS vs PHI series or the MIA vs IND series will have back-to-backs.
I am fearful that it will negatively impact us. We get two games at home, where we have an advantage. But if you make them back-to-back games, considering that OKC is by far the younger and more athletic team, and a back-to-back would impact them less, you are sort of taking that advantage away from us in the second game.
Hopefully that isn't how it turns out.
