2011-12 NBA Schedule Breakdown

The NBA is in the process of ironing out the remaining details of the new agreement. If the new deal is agreed to and ratified, the season would begin on Christmas day with the tentative following breakdown:

Regular Season Start Date: December 25, 2011

Regular Season End Date: April 26, 2012

Playoffs Start Date: April 28, 2012

Last Possible Finals Date: June 26, 2012

Individual Team Schedule Breakdown

Conference Games: 48

• Play 6 teams 4 times (2 home, 2 away)

• Play 4 teams 3 times (2 home, 1 away)

• Play 4 teams 3 times (1 home, 2 away)

Non-Conference Games: 18

• Play 3 teams 2 times (1 home, 1 away)

• Play 6 teams 1 time at home

• Play 6 teams 1 time away

Back to Back to Backs: All teams with at least 1; no more than 3

Playoff Back to Backs: Possible in second round

Celtics notes, the potential of three back-to-back-to-backs could be a huge issue for the aging team. This past season, the Celtics played in 18 back-to-back situations and they struggled posting an 8-10 record in the second game of the swing. 18 non-conference games could be a potential benefit, with only 6 away games, limited travel to the west coast could be seen as a positive. Of course more will be known as soon as the official schedule is released.
