Saying that it hopes to "transform fans' couches at home into courtside seats," NBA-TV announced plans Monday to air a special "silent game" in high-definition television, with no announcers (except for the arena's public address announcer) using microphones on the court to "provide fans with enhanced sneaker sounds." The game, between the Orlando Magic and the Houston Rockets, will be televised on Feb. 26 as part of the NBA's Hardwood Classic Nights, featuring a 70's theme. "During any breaks in the action, music with a 70's theme will be featured with a pep band and organist," the NBA's statement said.
