i count 19 back to backs, but i could be wrong.
we open the season on October 27 at home vs. Utah. then we have 2 away games B2B @ NOH on 10/29 and @ Houston on 10/30.
we have a very key east coast road trip at the end of january. all games are very winnable, IMO. we should go 5-0 on this road trip, but realisitically i can see us ending up at 3-2. i just hope we can shake our lackluster performances against sub-.500 teams this season.
1/25 @ Washington
1/26 @ Detroit
1/28 @ Cleveland
1/30 @ Philadelphia
1/31 @ NJ
pretty tough road trip in march. a split would be nice here. winning that initial game against NOH could set the tone for the road trip.
3/14 @ NOH
3/16 @ Atlanta
3/18 @ Orlando
3/19 @ Miami
also weird that we play Sacramento back to back games, on March 30 and @ on Apr 1.
after that, the beginning of April looks tough. we'll most likely be fighting for seedings this late in the season, so again, this will be a key 4-game stretch. winning the Dallas and at least 1 of the OKC games should keep us in a good position.
4/3 @ Lakers
4/5 vs. OKC
4/6 @ Dallas
4/8 @ OKC
we end the season @ Utah on 4/13.
