Thankfully, the Los Angeles Lakers made the playoffs, so now, it is time to get the details on how to get tickets and where to watch the games.
Game One of the series against the San Antonio Spurs is scheduled for Sunday at 12:30 pm PT on ABC. That game will be played at the AT&T Center in San Antonio. The Spurs were 35-6 at home this season, so the Lakers have their work cut out for them.
Game Two of the series, also in San Antonio, will be played on Wednesday at 6:30 pm PT on TNT.
Game Three and Game Four move the series back to Los Angeles on Friday, Apr. 26, and Sunday, Apr. 28, respectively. Game three will be on ESPN, and Game Four will be on TNT.
Tickets for games three and four will not be available for sale at the STAPLES Center box office. The only way to get tickets for the Lakers first round home playoff games is online or on the phone. Tickets will go on sale on Saturday, Apr. 20 at 10:00 am.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.ticketmaster.com and all ticketmaster outlets. Also, tickets can be purchased by calling 1-800-4-NBA-Tix or 1-800-745-3000. There is a limit of four tickets per person.
If the Lakers need more than four games to put the Spurs away, Game Five of the series will be back in San Antonio on Apr. 30. Game Six will be back in Los Angeles on May 2. If by some miracle, the Spurs survive to seven games, the Lakers will travel to San Antonio for Game Seven on May 4.
Tip-off times and TV schedules have not yet been determined for games five, six, and seven.
