With the Spurs’ semifinals series set to start on Tuesday, a likely back to back for Game 3 and 4 could be played on May 19-20

Here is what Tony Mejia says about the back to back:

Road back-to-back will only serve to make non-believers continue to doubt SA. No one has played better. They'll get up 3-0 - Pop rests core.

Why are they doing B2B? It's just not necessary.

Oh well... Our Spurs team is deep. They will be just fine on that b2b! Considering how long it took to finish that series one for the Clippers I do think it should be a good thing for the Spurs!!!!

A B2B in the playoffs? Well that's dumb, but at least it means this series will be over even sooner.

To ensure the Finals start on time. That's the big money shot for the NBA.

Since both the Lakers and Clippers had to play 7 to advance, the West semi-finals are slightly/potentially delayed.

Now we understand the threat last December about playoff back to backs.

i personally think it's ridiculous. i know Stern had said the potential for it way before the season started, but I'm assuming the Game 7's had something to do with it.

I thought it was due to conflict of the Kings (hockey), Lakers, and Clippers all being in the playoffs still, but the game against the Clippers is the same day the Lakers play, so I still don't get the need for the back-to-back. Either way, it's ironic that it is a disadvantage to BOTH LA teams, and essentially screws up any "home court" they could've wnated.

Staples employees must be happy with having the Clippers and Lakers both playing the same day having to change everything in a few hours
