Already sick of hearing about the Heat vs. the Knicks? Tired of Kobe Bryant talk? Do we have the series for you! The Indiana Pacers will meet the Orlando Magic in the first round of the 2012 NBA Playoffs. It's a shame that there isn't more systemic love for the Pacers, who are a really strong team. Understandably, the Magic lost their postseason luster when Dwight Howard went under the knife. It's no surprise that this is the only first-round series with two games scheduled for NBA TV.
Here's the series schedule as released by the NBA. All times are Eastern.
Game 1 - Sat., April 28 at Indiana, 7 p.m., ESPN
Game 2 - Mon., April 30 at Indiana, 7:30 p.m., NBA TV
Game 3 - Wed., May 2 at Orlando, 7:30 p.m., NBA TV
Game 4 - Sat., May 5 at Orlando, 2 p.m., ESPN
Game 5 - Tue., May 8 at Indiana
Game 6 - Fri., May 11 at Orlando
Game 7 - Sun., May 13 at Indiana
