You probably have roasted them by now, but it has something to do with ABC. I forgot what, but it's ABC has the rights to it.

ABC owns the rights to certain NBA games. That one is theirs. They may switch over to it if the other games at the same time is a blow out or something. But I doubt it.

When ABC is broadcasting an NBA game ABC and the NBA require you to watch that game or watch no NBA basketball at all on TV because all other games are blacked out on every other TV channel. Here are more details about ABC/NBA's dictatorial blackouts and what you can do to change their fan abuse:

What games will be on during the two televised games?? Other than the Knicks-Bucks and both are not winning right now, none. i get your point but it doesn't hold merit today. Knicks-Bucks is regional coverage at best.

Do you pay for MSG, NBALP, Sportsnet, etc to see ONLY the ABC games?

If ABC was showing a movie -- even a good one -- would it be fair if you were not allowed to see any other one on any other station -- because no station (Broadcast, PPV, Cable and Satellite) was allowed to compete with ABC?

Here you cannot watch any NBA game live that is being played at the same time as the ABC game. And its not just because there are two bad teams. Even good teams in smaller markets are often blacked out. That is tyrannical censorship and commercial exploitation by the NBA and ABC.
