During the NBA playoffs, ESPN and TNT split coverage on weekday nights. When one network has coverage, the other does not. There were instances of both having weekend coverage but scheduling is such that the timeslots never conflict with one in the afternoon and the other at night. It is theoretically possible for TNT to not have playoff games on Wednesdays. The other possibility is that if TNT has Wednesday playoff games, then AEW can air on a one off occasion on a night when ESPN has the NBA playoffs. TNT's main NBA regular season night is Thursday, but it has some odd Monday and Tuesday games either due to NCAA Basketball Tournament preemptions or to fulfill its minimum number of games since it isn't possible to air all on Thursdays. Wednesday and Friday are ESPN's NBA nights with the odd other night occasionally.
