Why do we always play the last game of the day?

Seriously, 99% of our games are always the latest game of the night. I thought it was because were a west coast team but even the rest of them play before us. Why is that?

Our games are at 7:30pm. There are other west coast teams that start games at that time or different times but that is our typical home game start time. My opinion, with traffic in downtown LA, makes sense to start a bit later so people can actually get to the game.

It is because we are a west coast team. We are on the last time zone of the NBA.

At least we aren't east coast where some games may start at 8-8:30PM PST.

Quick check - Warriors & Clippers also start home games at 7:30pm, Suns & Kings start at 7pm.

Bay Area has horrible traffic as well. Clippers at Staples. I think you hit it, Kasumi.

Here in Europe, i'm getting up at 4:30AM or sometimes @ 3:30AM to watch my Lakers(this is time when we play home @Staples), and i don't give a F about time, i love this team and i absolutely enjoy every minute of Kobe Bryant on floor, so, yeah, you guys now see how fortunate you are to watch Lakers at some "normal time" hehhee :D

When did 10:30 suddenly become late?

If I'm in bed before 1, I consider that a success. 6-7 hrs of sleep, rinse and repeat.

Agreed. I actually prefer games at 10:30...get everything done before, then relax and watch the game.

Completely agree. I hate early games, I feel like I'm always rushed to get things done and then if I don't, after the game it's too late or I don't feel like doing it. 10:30 games are the perfect time.

lakers games always start at 10:30 for me as well

but i love it. like someone said earlier, it means i can get everything done beforehand and then be able to relax and watch the game before going to bed. even if i go out, i can still come back by 12 and catch the 4th

11:30 here since the time change, used to be 12:30.. I don't mind it, used to staying up late.
