PostPosted: 06/12/10 10:25 pm    ::: Dates for 2010 playoffs? Reply Reply with quote

I'm trying to figure out the exact dates for the playoffs. I know that teams and times cannot be predicted yet. I found a link in Wikipedia that sounds pretty accurate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010_WNBA_Playoffs) but ESPN2 has a playoff game scheduled for Aug 25th at 10 PM which contradicts that link. Anyone have any information?

I'm basing this on the wiki plus last year's schedule, but unless the WNBA has come right out and said it, I'm going with:

(Last day of season: Sun. Aug 22)
Conf semis: (Wed.) Aug 25/27/29 or (Thur.) 26/28/30

Conf finals: (Thur.) Sep 2/4/5 for both

Finals: (Fri) Sep 10/12/14/17/20

Note, these are my guesses. I do not know why the WNBA can't yet state at least the dates of the finals. I assume that it is so that they can have some leeway with site scheduling. I wanted to go to a football game or two so the dates are rather important to me.

I thought the league had stated at the beginning of the season that the last day of the finals would be Sept.20 Wink

I'll never doubt you again. I just saw the ESPN programming for September and here's what they have:

(Wed 8/25) 10:00 PM Conference Semifinal, Game 1 (Probably West)
(Thu 8/26) 9:00 PM Conference Semifinal, Game 1
(Sat 8/28 ) 1:00 PM Conference Semifinal, Game 2 (Probably East)
(Sat 8/28 ) 3:00 PM Conference Semifinal, Game 2 (Probably West)
(Sun 8/29) 8:00 PM Conference Semifinal, Game 3 (if necessary)
(Sun 9/5) 1:00 PM - Conference Finals Game 1 (ABC, probably East)

(Sun 9/12) 3:00 PM - Finals, Game #1 (ABC)
(Tue 9/14) 8:00 PM - Finals, Game #2
(Thu 9/16) 8:00 PM - Finals, Game #3
(Sun 9/19) 3:00 PM - Finals, Game #4 (if necessary)
(Tue 9/21) 8:00 PM - Finals, Game #5 (if necessary)

ESPN2 has US Open tennis, football, or racing scheduled at all other times (Sep 2-8 ) so I assume other games will get televised on NBA-TV. the only thing I don't understand is why the 5th is listed as "game 1." I'd assume it was game 2 if the series went from the 2nd - 8th.

Bumping this up now that it's been pretty much announced: http://www.wnba.com/news/postseason_dates_100729.html

Based on the TV schedule, this is what I expect. The only thing in question to me (besides exact matchups) is whether the 2-3 games in the first round would be before the 1-4 games.

(All times EDT)

(Could also be 1-4) (2) vs. (3) Wed/Fri/Sun
August 25 Game 1 (high) TV: 10PM (West)
August 27 Game 2 (low)
August 29 Game 3 (high) TV: 8PM
(Could also be 2-3) (1) vs. (4) Thu/Sat/Mon
August 26 Game 1 (high) TV: 9PM (West?)
August 28 Game 2 (low) TV: 1PM and 3PM (East, then West?)
August 30 Game 3 (high)
Conference Finals Thu/Sun/Wed
September 2 Game 1 (high)
September 5 Game 2 (low) 1:00pm ABC (East)
September 8 Game 3 (high)
WNBA Finals: West Champion vs. East Champion Sun/Tue/Thu/Sun/Tue
September 12 Game 1 (high) 3PM ABC (HD)
September 14 Game 2 (high) 8PM ESPN2 (HD)
September 16 Game 3 (low) 8PM ESPN2 (HD)
September 19 Game 4 (low) 3PM ESPN2 (HD)
September 21 Game 5 (high) 8PM ESPN2 (HD)

Is there any reason for your assumption that the games will take place in pairs, both in the first round and the Conference Finals? For example, just because the Conference Finals are taking place between the 2nd and 8th (inclusive), East and West don't both have to be 2/5/8. Could be 2/4/7 and 3/5/8 or something.

Very true. In this case I am basing it on last year's format which had them on the same day. But I think you may be correct.

I worked this out on wikipedia earlier today...it's mostly just guess work obviously, but it lays it out cleanly.

I doubt it. He's assuming someone will televise them at all. ESPN2 is busy with US Open tennis coverage.

bumping up since it's getting closer. By the way, someone posted info on where to stay in NYC and how to get to the Garden. Would you mind reposting that? I'm starting to think about whether I can afford to follow the Storm if they make the Finals.

Wow, you aren't kidding. Sesame Street Live in Atlanta with a bunch of shows. What other place would there be to play? Because if it ends up being a Storm/Atlanta final they'll have to play elsewhere. I nominate Key Arena Smile Actually, I'm assuming they'd have to play at Georgia Tech's arena which I think is the Alexander Memorial Coliseum. Man, if I was a STH I'd be pissed!

LA wouldn't have a better record than the East so that date would not conflict. But, yeah, depending on the matchups some of those dates would be bad.

The Storm narrowly missed having to play a playoff game at Hec Ed a year or two ago when the Key Arena wasn't available.

Surely some date adjustment can be made if necessary, right? Right?? Confused How freaking sad would it be to make the Finals and then not be able to play any of the games on your home court? Sigh.

Well the Detroit Shock had to win a championship in Ypsilanti (Eastern Michigan University) one year. That was my college and it's not exactly large. Playing at a different location is disconcerting and really detracts from the home field advantage in my opinion.

If my Storm get to the Finals I want to follow them but some of these places are going to nearly break my bank. Washington DC and New York are wicked expensive. Indianapolis would be ok - been there before and liked it. Atlanta would be ok assuming I knew where they'd play. I didn't really want to go to Mohegan or Chicago anyway. Plus fully-refundable plane tickets are spendy too. I guess that's why they call us fanatics.

Of course, the Storm need to do their part.

I don't think adjustments can be made because the TV schedule is set. They probably have contingency plans in place but that's why they don't announce things until the last minute.

So wouldn't you think there would be information front and center on the W site as to when the playoffs will be, even if they can't give exact locations until the teams are announced? I couldn't find anything on the W site, even under their playoff tab, so went to the Storm site and under ticket info you can find out that the first game will be 25th or 26th.

It's like it's being kept secret until the last minute...then they will wonder why the stands are not full.

You would think if nothing else they could give the basic dates (25-30, 2-8, 12-21). But, yeah, even after clicking around I can't find the info anywhere.

Right, but the point is that fans going to the front page can't find the info easily. It should be an entry under "Schedule."

Also, that page is a bit out of date. It still claims that the Chicago Sky are in the playoff hunt Laughing

Just received a tweet that the Storm's first game will be 11PM Eastern (8 PM PDT) on Wednesday the 25th. Checking the updated ESPN2 schedule, this will be the ESPN2 game for Wednesday assuming the baseball game before it ends on time. The other ESPN2 game is Thursday @ 9PM EDT so it's either a late starting East game or a 6PM Phoenix game start.

So, this makes the West:
SEA-tbd 25/27/29
PHX-tbd 26/28/30

And, just a bit of Seattle bragging: I've included the ticket link which includes a seat-by-seat choice method. You can see how much of the lower bowl is already sold out. Our T-shirts say "I AM home-court advantage!"

I'll be doing my clinicals til 8 pm on Thursday and should just make it to the arena for the last 5 minutes of the game...but I will make it for the last 5 minutes come hell or high water!

This really messes my schedule up too. I was so certain that we'd play Thur/Sat/Mon that I didn't ask for Sun off from work. I'm scheduled 2pm to 9pm... I need to get it covered, obviously, but I also really need to know if it'll be an afternoon game or a regular night game.

Anyone know anything about the schedule for Sunday the 29th???

Sunday would only be if necessary. There's an ESPN2 window for 8PM Eastern on the 29th. They are probably playing the percentages for both coasts.

And, yeah, messes me up too. I was assuming a Saturday away game so I don't think I can make a Friday one Sad

Just received a tweet that the Storm's first game will be 11PM Eastern (8 PM PDT) on Wednesday the 25th. Checking the updated ESPN2 schedule, this will be the ESPN2 game for Wednesday assuming the baseball game before it ends on time. The other ESPN2 game is Thursday @ 9PM EDT so it's either a late starting East game or a 6PM Phoenix game start.

So, this makes the West:
SEA-tbd 25/27/29
PHX-tbd 26/28/30

And, just a bit of Seattle bragging: I've included the ticket link which includes a seat-by-seat choice method. You can see how much of the lower bowl is already sold out. Our T-shirts say "I AM home-court advantage!"

Well, this is just great! I just KNEW our game would be Thursday. My in-laws are arriving at SeaTAC at 8:15 on Wednesday! I spoke to my mother-in-law and she doesn't want us to miss the game. She said they would just find a place to eat at the airport and wait on us. I did volunteer to pay for a cab or limo ride to the house but she refused...ugh!
