Some Interesting NBA data

An emailer asked about scheduling in the NBA. Another suggested that in any given year there are are teams that benefit greatly and others that are negatively impacted by the number of back to backs and 4 games in 5 nights that they play, and possibly more importantly, how many of their opponent’s games are on the 2nd game of a back to back or 5th day of a 4 games in 5 night stretch.

So for those of us that were curious, here is the data for this year through last friday
