    It is happening to everyone with NBALP. There are only 9 LP channels. And since ESPN is taking a late game (9:30 EST Bulls/Nuggets) that means there are too many "early" games and thus LP can't carry all the games. Sucks that the Rockets game gets the short end of the stick! So basically we are left with only watching the 2nd half of the game. NBALP used to be 11 channels and this problem wasnt an issue, but moving it down to 9 really creates problems on nights in which there is a huge slate of games and NBATV or ESPN aren't picking up any of the early matchups.

    Thanks for answering my question.

    Can't tell you how irritated I am about this. I mean it's freaking pay per view, you'd think they figure out a way actually give the customer the option to watch everything they paid for.

    I guess I just better hope the first game is a quick one

    Lakers is good team with KOBE and ODOM.

    KOBE is such great player that he can take over the game and totally unstoppable

    It's a high for this putrid year, but it doesn't even scratch the kinds of threads we had last year.

    Ever since Shaq left, Yao has straight up owned every Laker big man they've thrown at him (seriously, Yao's had some of the best games of his career against the lakers the past couple of years), expect Bynum to continue that proud tradition.

    Lakers is not a good team any more with KOBE and any other star-level player playing together becuase he would make other players look so stupid and useless compared with him.
    And sure KOBE can take over the game and totally unstoppable going down!

    What's all this talk about DA coming back tonight? Did I miss something, or is that just based on the Keith Jones timetable and the Rockets' being at home?

    why is this??? I am pass holder and it is terrible if it is true. Don't understand it though, they never show 2 games on one channel. It only happens on TNT. Please enlighten me.

    Tonights game is on tv 51 tonight in the Houston area. Also with Tmac and Yao both playing we should get this victory and go to 20-29 on the season. Only 4 games back of the 8th seed if we win. Go Rockets!!!

    I've caught a game on one of these, but that was because someone posted the link on the BBS. Without a link, how do I get to these stations? And are you talking about watching it streaming through a website, or streaming throught the actual PPLive app that you download? One link I tried just took me to a chinese site that I couldn't read, and I couldn't figure out how to watch the game. It looked like streaming through the website.

    Is there a way I can find the channel without reading chinese? If not, could you post a link when the game comes on?

    Thanks for the info and help!

    Can some one give us the 411 on that, esp. since I'll have to miss the first half due to Comcast
