Playoff games should only be played in primetime. I realize the networks and league probably don’t want all games happening at once for more exposure but when a playoff basketball game ends before 5 p.m. did it even happen? Theres no hype theres no build up, there’s no looking forward to the game all day. Its just getting a notification on your phone and saying “oh look a hockey/ basketball game happened today”. If the Masters didnt tee off early who is tuning into a 1 p.m. Pacers-Celtics game? Not a single soul that’s who. Mid day playoff games feel like regular season baseball games, if I’m sitting on the couch I’ll tune in but it isnt appointment television which all playoffs games should be.
