Just a Basketball Question

Why does the NBA play only few games during Thursdays? Any history about Thursdays in the US or anything about Thursday sports? I'd like to know and thanks for those who can enlighten me.

This is just my opinion but

This is just my opinion but TNT and Thursday night is what a lot of NBA fans look forward to and with it being just those couple of games on,NBA fans don't have to worry about missing there favorite team play ,and it leaves games open for other nights that local fans can watch there teams play without missing the big games

Kinda works both ways

Wow, never realized that, but

Wow, never realized that, but it makes sense that TNT would want there to be as few games possible on Thursdays, and personally I love it when games are on National Television, especially when there are heavyweights like the Heat, Thunder, Knicks, Celtics, Spurs, and Lakers involved.

probably want to schudual for the weekend games, then go back and try to make Thursday Friday work with the schedule, but I'm just guessing.
