NBA Playoff Schedule 2011: Two Possible Start Times For Western Conference Final Game 1

The NBA has announced two possible start times for Game 1 of the 2011 Western Conference Finals. With the Dallas Mavericks already qualified for the conference finals, the remaining variable is their opponent. With the Oklahoma City Thunder’s comeback 3OT win in Game 4 last night, their series with the Memphis Grizzlies is now tied at two, meaning that it will last at least six games.

The remaining games in that series are scheduled for Wednesday, Friday and, if necessary, Sunday. In either case, Dallas will have home court in the series and the winner of the remaining semifinal will have just one day to recover before the conference final begins. If the series ends in six (Friday), the finals will start on Sunday. If it lasts seven (Sunday), the finals will commence Tuesday.

Possible start times
If Memphis/OKC goes 6: Sunday, May 15 at 2:30 CDT, American Airlines Center, Dallas
If Memphis/OKC goes 7: Tuesday, May 17 at 8:00 CDT, American Airlines Center, Dallas
