Please note that Mavs Vs. Heat, Game 6 of the 2011 NBA Finals gets going an hour early tonight, at 8:00 EDT, 7:00 CDT since it’s Sunday night. ABC will have a 30-minute pregame, preceded by Jimmy Kimmel’s half hour Game 6 show starring Shaquille O’Neal and James Caan. Kimmel also has a blackjack bit.
NBA TV will pick up the coverage immediately after the game (unless there’s a ceremony of some kind, which I’m sure ABC would also carry) with their post game and then all of the press conferences. NBA, by the way, is showing the other finals games from now until ABC’s pregame.
After the game, if you’re in DFW, FSN SW has a special episode of Mavericks live from 9:30 to 10:30. Fox 4 has Sports Sunday at 10:00, NBC 5 has Out of Bounds at 10:30, CBS 11 has The Score at 10:35, and all of those will be all over the Finals. News 8 will have another Dale Hansen special at approximately 10:30, depending on when the game ends.
If the Mavericks do win, I’ll spend the late night hours taunting ESPN analysts from my living room, but you can catch more postgame and press conferences on NBA until about 5 p.m. Monday. Also, if you somehow fail to record the game, ESPN will show it again at 2:30 a.m. CDT.
