About the NBA Rest Days and Adjusted Efficiency Differential (AED)

Rest Days Types

For each team, we take team schedules and tag the “game-day”s and “off-day”s. This way, we can analyze the rest days patterns. Let’s code: X as the game-day, and O, as the off-day.
GAME DAYS WITH NO REST:
4IN5-B2B: 4th game in 5 days w/ playing on last 2 consecutive nights. Pattern=…X+X+O+[X+X]
Side note: The NBA avoided scheduling “4IN5-B2B” games starting from 2017-18 season!
3IN4-B2B*: 3rd game in 4 days w/ playing on last 2 consecutive nights. Pattern=…X+O+[X+X]
B2B: 2nd game in 2 days w/ playing on the last 2 consecutive nights. Pattern=…[X+X]
AT LEAST 1 DAY REST:
3IN4: 3rd game in 4 days and had 1 day rest yesterday. Pattern=…X+X+O+X
1:Had 1 day rest (yesterday) and a playing a game today. Pattern=…O+X
2 :Had 2 days rest and a playing a game a game today. Pattern=…O+O+X
3+: 3 or more days rest and playing a game today. Pattern=…O+O+O+X

*Some of the 3IN4-B2B games might also be “fifth game in 7 days”. But all “fifth game in 7 days” are always a 3IN4-B2B.

Adjusted Efficiency Differential (AED)

Raw efficiencies (offensive efficiency minus defensive efficiency) are adjusted to account for opponent strength and game location (road/home) Learn more about AED.
