    At LA Clippers March 11th, 8:00 PM
    No TV, Radio WDFN 1130 am (Locally)


    The Pistons travel to the "Left Side" to take on the other LA team, the Clippers. After having a surprisingly successful year in `06 the Clips are struggling in `07.

    However, they are the 8th seed in the west in the playoff race. Detroit will try and make it 2-0 on thier five game road trip.

    The Clippers normally play better at home but still have the tendency of jumping off to a nice lead only to run out of gas midway through the 3rd quarter and lose games that should have won. They are 4-3 since Livingston dislocated his career, but are only 1-3 this month with their lone victory being the defensive beatdown of Cola's quitting Pacers a week ago.

    The Clippers other point guard Alien Sam Cassell, has been suffering from a sore groin this month and came back and played sparingly last night. They signed Jason Hart earlier this week to run the point and he is getting a crash course in learning the Clipper offense.

    Everyone else appears healthy, so hopefully the Pistons aren't hanging out at the beach or in Hollywood tonight and can get some rest and be up and ready for the early noon time game. Missing Sheed and Hunter will mean the bench will have to step up.

    Look for me to the left of behind the basket 7 rolls back on the Pistons end. I will be wearing my PF shirt and cheering with the other 3,000 or so displaced Pistons fans expected to be there...:cheerleader:

    Yep, first daylight savings game.

    According to Pistons.com, the game will be on My20 Detroit at 7:00 PM (tape delay). That stinks!!!

    Surprisngly no TV here either. Now I am glad I have tickets. Like I said earlier, the weather is nice out here this weekend> 85 yesterday so hopefully the boys didn't hang out all night at Tay's folks house or the Playboy mansion, as missing that DST hour is a killer this morning.

    No TV anywhere because ABC has exclusive rights to games played on Sunday, in the afternoon time slots. ABC chooses which game/games they will televise, the remainder of afternoon games can`t be televised by any other network.

    that's amazing about the tape delay. at least it WILL be on TV (or so they say)! gotta watch maxiell starting again. i'm not even going to check the score and just pretend it's live.

    The jackasses at ABC and the dullards at NBA should have negotiated that in the event that ABC chooses not to televise the game, it should default to the local affiliate. So much for thinking things through...how do you negotiate a contract that just allows a network to arbitrarily prevent everyone not at the arena from viewing a game they aren't showing?

    Thats what you got to do. I don't mind since 7pm suites me better anyway.

    Hopefully you non-local guys can pick it up on league pass.

    Chat will open at 6:30. If it doesn't open automatically, please PM The Low, or Luke Slippywalker. I will be away with family until 8:00 or so.

    I do agree with you though, in this case it works out better for me.

    They should have informed everyone in time to re-schedule the game.

    It's not being aired on DirecTV either. I'm going to wait and see if I can watch it on broadband here in about 30 min.

    Doesn't look like it will be on broadband either.

    Thanks ABC...two sub .500 teams are MUCH more interesting. What was I thinking?

    I agree as well with you Low, however, that part of the deal was more than likely non-negotiable!

    We all know TV revenues play a huge role in NBA money, therefore ABC can dictate whatever they want and the NBA will do nothing but say, ok.

    Copied the story:

    Pretty sad that an LA team can't get national recognition with that market.:gun1::hoops:
