LA Times:
Potential scheduling conflict

There is a potential for a scheduling conflict when the Clippers and Los Angeles Kings both play playoff games Sunday at Staples Center.

The Kings are scheduled to play the Phoenix Coyotes at noon in Game 4 of the NHL Western Conference finals with an opportunity to go to the Stanley Cup finals, and the Clippers are scheduled to play the Spurs at 7:30 p.m. in Game 4 of the NBA Western Conference semifinals.

If the Kings go past one overtime period, the start of the Clippers' game could be delayed — possibly to 8 p.m.

Any decision about delaying the game would be made by the NBA and TNT, in conjunction with the Clippers and Spurs.

It takes about 2 hours 15 minutes to convert the ice to a basketball court.

If the Kings go into a second or third overtime, the start of the Clippers-Spurs game could be delayed even further, or even could be pushed to Monday night, an NBA official said Saturday.

It was suggested that fans attending the Clippers-Spurs game listen to the radio to dictate what time the game will begin.
