NBA schedule released

Recommended Posts

Reason nobody has talked about it is because unlike the NFL, the NBA has every team play all the other teams.  The NFL schedule could be any team outside the 6 divisional games.  Only dates are different in the NBA scheduling, but I agree with your post.  They also have 2 fewer back to backs this season, which is always good.

Not necessarily... Every NFL team knows who they are playing next season at the conclusion of the previous season. We rotate playing the AFC divisions every 4 years. We play each team in the NFC South twice. We rotate the other 3 NFC divisions every 3 years. And we play the team from the other 2 NFC divisions that finished in the same position as us in their division respectfully. So technically, we already know 14 of our games for 2018-2019. The only questions with NFL scheduling is whether the games are Home/Away and when the Bye week lands.

That is very true.  Still, whether a game is home or away makes a big difference.  NBA is pretty much already set in stone outside of the date.

Early part of our schedule is pretty brutal. November/December in particular. The remaining months seems to be pretty easy - I'll break it down:

OCT: 4-3 - tough games Vs Bucks, Rockets and Grizz 
NOV: 5-8 - 4 game road trip - also games Vs Bucks, Spurs, Wolves x2, Celtics, Cavs x2, Clips, Spurs and Raptors
DEC: 6-10 - tough games Vs OKC, GS x2, Heat x2, Bucks x2, Rockets, Raptors, Celtics and Clips
JAN: 10-4 - there is a West road trip that crosses Dec-Jan but things clear up.. only tough games Vs OKC, Wiz, Heat
FEB: 9-3 - another West road trip but Vs easier opponents: Pho, Den, Port, Utah.. add in the Allstar break and only real tough games Vs Blazers, Raptors, Wiz and Celtics
MAR: 10-5 - winding down with a lot of scrubs to boost our record.. only tough games Vs Raps, Cavs and Wiz
APR: 4-1 - finish it out vs Philly, Bulls, Magic and Pacers x2

---------------

if my estimations are correct or close - we end up with a 48-34 record.. I'll even grade on a curve and drop 3 games for some 'homer picks' and say we have a 45-37 record.. if we can manage the early half of the schedule and end December with a record somewhere close to .500 - we can make a lot of noise in the 2nd half.. very exciting..
