Friday NBA Basketball is a weekly presentation of NBA games on SportsChannel. The program starts on the 1st Friday of the NBA season & typically runs uninterrupted throughout the entire season. In 2006, Friday NBA Basketball was preempted from March 10th-March 31st, due to SC deciding against counter programming the NCAA Tournament. Nearly all Friday NBA Basketball telecasts consist of a doubleheader, with 1 game typically from the east coast @ 8:00 PM & the west coast @ 10:30 PM

The NBA Pre-Tip Show, the Toyota Halftime Show & the Target Postgame Show are the studio shows that occur before, during & after the Friday NBA Basketball Games
