    Did anyone catch this:

    As we told you about previously, the NBA debuted a whole new way of broadcasting their game last night for HDTV owners. I caught it and came away pretty impressed. The angle provided by the two SkyCams was far superior to the usual camera angles used. It brought you in a lot closer to the floor and made it feel like sitting close to courtside instead of simply being in the arena way up in the upper deck.

    [plus very little commentary]

    I thought the whole game being broadcast by those two cameras (minus the closeups during free throws) was annoying. The lack of commentary was a huge plus, but overall I can't see it catching on.

    One camera was out of action for a good portion of the first half, so action down on the Spurs end was from very far away and a bad angle.
