    Brett Pollakoff of NBA Fan House informed us of this:

    “Not concrete, might (and probably will) move up to begin on Sunday May 16.”

    Make sense.

    • bostonSUCKS88

      good, that would make alot more sense

      • Sasha4Lvp

        yea May 16 makes more sense. may 19 is way too much time off. both series will be over by the the 13th, the latest.

  • lordnykn

    Noooooooooo. I was hoping no Lakers Basketball on Sunday mar 23. Lost Finale that same night. Gonna be torn on what to watch for sure.

    • bostonSUCKS88

      it might start sunday may 16, not the 23rd. im really looking forward to that lost finale too

  • http://lakersnation.com KOBE THA MVP 10′

    hOW DO WE KNOW IF THE LAKERS WON YET, NEVER KNOW

  • Trem

    Still gotta win one more and finish off the Jazz, go Lakeshow!!

  • Marwan Marzina

    The Suns couldnt lose today, Game 4 is now a BIG game because the earlier we finish the series, the more rest the Lakers have till Wednesday’s Game 1.

  • Laker Faithful

    I live in the Phoenix, AZ metro area and thought I would pass this along since our future Western Conference Finals opponents are not too far away to make the trip (drive or fly). During the regular season it is not too uncommon to see at least 1/3 of the arena full of Laker fans! I would love to see the Suns arena turn into a Laker house! I will be there to represent the purple and gold army!

    If you anyone is interested go to Ticketmaster and search Phoenix Suns at 2pm (AZ is the same time as Pacific time zone states thus 2pm in L.A.).

    Here is a quote from a comment on that azcentral.com link “Buy em up Suns fans….Keep the fakers fans out of our building!”

    BEST OF SEVEN (2-2-1-1-1) POSSIBLE MOVE UP TO MAY 16 OR 17

    Date Matchup TV Network Time
    Wednesday, May 19 Western Conference Finals Game 1 TNT 9 ET
    Friday, May 21 Western Conference Finals Game 2 TNT 9 ET
    Sunday, May 23 Western Conference Finals Game 3 TNT 8:30 ET
    Tuesday, May 25 Western Conference Finals Game 4 TNT 9 ET
    Thursday, May 27 Western Conference Finals Game 5* TNT 9 ET
    Saturday, May 29 Western Conference Finals Game 6* TNT 8:30 ET
    Monday, May 31 Western Conference Finals Game 7* TNT 9 ET

    +++My best guess is that if they “MOVE UP TO MAY 16 or 17″ then Game 3 would be moved up to a Friday and Game 4 moved up to a Sunday.

    as I had said that lakers might lose tonight on a purpose( the buss situation). but since phoenix finished the spurs already, they might close the jazz too, and I wanted that to happen. Imagine suns, spurs, and lakers swept opponent while the no 1 seed team in the NBA that has an MVP on them still fighting for their life! I am sad for lebron….I still want kobe vs. lebron in the finals but lakers beating boston is more sweeter, but I doubt it wont happen co’z orlando will represent the east to set a rematch!

    On the attached link:

    several Suns fans are anticipating that their team will win in 6 games.

    A little presumptious wouldn’t you all say?
