Rest Days Analysis According to New Schedule


New schedule brings "back-to-back-to-back" situation that creates new types of rest days. It seems crazy at first, but you'll get it when you go through below examples. More insane events from the condensed season: the new schedule features a 9-IN-12! (nine games in 12 days) stint for the Hawks; Cleveland has a franchise record 9 game home-stand; Toronto will play 19-IN-31 in January, etc. You can extend those by downloading NBA schedule in Excel and build your own analysis.

Take X, as the day with a game played and take O, as the off day.

UPDATE (12/06) | SCHEDULE HAS BEEN RELEASED
The shortened schedule is finally up. You can download the NBA schedule with each of the 30 team schedules in excel or play with the rest days breakdown.

UPDATE (12/01) | SCHEDULE OUT TUESDAY
2011-2012 regular season schedule should finally be available by Tuesday night at 7 p.m. according to Associated Press. NBA will host a schedule release TV program on Dec 6th.
Once it's been out, you can download the NBA 2011-12 schedule in excel format or take a look at team-by-team analysis by the types of rest-days including "back-to-back-to-back" games.

UPDATE (11/29) | 2 MORE CHRISTMAS DAY GAMES
According to New York Times, NBA will open the 2011-12 season on Christmas with a five-game setup with one on TNT, two on ABC and two on ESPN. Earlier, David Stern said that, there will be triple header during the end-of-the-lockout press conference.

UPDATE (11/27) | SCHEDULE DETAILS OF 66 GAME SCHEDULE
*: The last day of 2011-12 NBA regular season will be April 26, 2012.
*: Teams to play "at least one" and "maximum three" "back-to-back-to-back" sets in case games start on Christmas Day.
*: Teams will play 48 conference and 18 nonconference games. This means not every NBA city will be visited.
*: This comes as a surprise for me: Due to the squeezed schedule, back-to-backs games might be played during the second round of the playoffs.

UPDATE (11/25) | TENTATIVE AGREEMENT
*: NBA 2011-2012 regular season is supposed to start with 3 games on Christmas Day, that were already on the schedule.
*: The rest of the 66 game schedule will be rescheduled and released in the coming days. Check back in later to keep updated!

MIL, IND, HOU, NYK, MIN, LAC playing most back-to-backs (22 times). Fewest back-to-backs: SAC, PHO (16)
*: 20 of 22 games are on the road for New York Knicks. Lakers playing all 18 back to backs games on the road. Fewest back to backs on the road: MIL (8), ATL (9), DET (10)
*: Most opponent B2Bs: Atlanta (28), Fewest opponent B2Bs: MIA (9)
*: Most 4 games in 5 days: DEN, LAC, MIN, CHI, IND (4 times). Fewest 4IN5s: DET, NJN, PHO, HOU, BOS, LAL, POR will play only 1 game.
