‘Murica, meet the Toronto Raptors

Hey look! The Raptors will be on prime-time in the States! Here’s the full broadcast schedule, courtesy of Newsday:

Game 1: Saturday, April 19 12:30 p.m. at Toronto, ESPN

Game 2: Tuesday, April 22, 8 p.m at Toronto, NBA TV

Game 3: Friday, April 5, 7 p.m. at Nets, ESPN2

Game 4: Sunday, April 27, 7 p.m. at Nets, TNT

Game 5 (if necessary): Wednesday, April 30, TBD at Toronto, TBD

Game 6 (if necessary): Friday, May 2, TBD at Nets

Game 7 (if necessary): Sunday, May 4 at Toronto, TBD at Toronto, TBD

According to the lovely and talented Eric “Buzzkill” Koreen (h/t: Seth Partnow on the nickname), the corps of Raptors beat-writers have yet to be informed of the Canadian broadcast schedule. One presumes that they’ll be shoved to Sportsnet One, or whatever they’re calling The Score nowadays, in lieu of some super-important NHL playoff games. Given that this is Canada, and it’s Rogers/Bell in charge, Ducks-Stars will probably take precedence over any sport played between tall men without knives strapped to their feet.


Buzzkill Koreen reports that the start of game two will be pushed back to 7:30, rather than 8:00

    Is there any way for us Canadians to watch the raps games with the ESPN/TNT feeds rather than Matt & Jack on TSN? Don’t get me wrong, I like our broadcast crew but I would love to watch the raps on ESPN or TNT and see what those commentators have to say. I’m sure there could be some other Canadian channel that could run the American broadcast feed. We complain were never on TNT/ESPN but when we are, can we actually watch it?

      nope. only channel we can watch is abc but raptors dont have any games on that channel.

    Heads up, Devlin just tweeted that the game would be on TSN. I suppose a positive to the very early start time is that there are no NHL games scheduled to kill the mood. That and the fact that our game opens up the entire playoffs, so all eyes will be on us.
