Trying to reach a wider TV audience, the NFL said Tuesday that it was scheduling playoff games in prime time for the first time, pushing back kickoffs for some wild-card and divisional contests. The four Saturday playoff games next season will start at 3:30 or 7 p.m. CST. In past seasons, those games started at either 11:30 or 3 p.m. CST Six of the eight wild-card and divisional playoff games last season drew lower TV ratings than the year before. “This will give our fans two playoff games starting early in prime time and it will mean much larger potential audiences for these games,” NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue said in a statement released Tuesday.

Unicorn Soccer Camp Above: New Braunfels boys soccer coach Todd Behling, right, looks on as his group performs a cheer to the Oompa Loompa song Monday night at Unicom Soccer Camp. Right: Dalton Mcosker, 8, of Memorial Elementary School dribbles a soccer ball during drills at Unicorn Soccer Camp Monday. The camp, which is instructed by Behling and New Braunfels girls soccer coach Al Dressen, is scheduled to run through Friday KYLE BAKER/Herald-Zeitung NBA FINALS/From 7A Jones at small forward and could see time at power forward in place of Tyrone Hill, who has been ineffective in this series. “I’m dressing and hopefully he’ll put me in,” Lynch said. “I’m hoping he won’t have to put me in, that we’re up IO the whole game.” The Lakers are looking to take away any hope the Sixers have left after three, grueling, down-to-the-wire finishes. A victory Wednesday practically clinches a second straight championship for Los Angeles. A loss gives the Sixers all the momentum heading into Friday’s Game 5. “I think it’s very pivotal,” Lakers guard Derek Fisher said. “They can either tie the series or we can go up 3-1. For both teams, it’s a life or death situation.” Philadelphia has been in this position in each of the last two series and responded by winning Game 4 on the road both times. “There’s a lot of pressure on us,” said McKie, who needed intravenous fluids to combat fatigue the last two days. “It’s important we get this win because we know we’re a good road team and we can win in their arena.” The Lakers, however, haven’t lost on the road in the postseason. At 6-0, Los Angeles is one victory shy of the record for consecutive road wins set by the Houston Rockets in 1995. Also, the Lakers are 13-1 in the playoffs, and victories in the next two games would give them the best postsea son winning percentage in NBA history The 1982-83 76ers hold the record of .923 (12-1). “I wouldn’t put too much on that,” forward Horace Grant said. “We just want to win the game. We can’t worry about being undefeated on the road. We just need to stay focused, take care of this game and let history take care of itself.” The Lakers, prohibitive favorites after sweeping through the playoffs, have had a tougher time than most expected against Philadelphia. If the Sixers hadn’t missed IO free throws in the fourth quarter of Game 2 or hadn’t left Robert Horry open to nail a 3-pointer in the closing minute of Game 3, Los Angles could be facing a 2-1 or 3-0 hole. “Whether you win by 20 or you win by one, you win,” Lakers center Shaquille O’Neal said. “If you had a Mercedes-Benz with the rims or without the rims, guess what? You still have a Benz. So it doesn’t matter to me how we win as long as we get the job done.” O’Neal’s mood was much lighter Tuesday. He even joked about his battle with Dikembe Mutombo after accusing the defensive player of the year of flopping in Game 3. “Dikembe is a great player and, of course, I respect his game,” O’Neal said. “You know, it’s nothing but us trying to bring the ratings up higher. It’ll be two warriors going at it.” You can bet the smallest warrior of them all — Iverson — will keep his utility cart parked for this one.
