I think the Bucks have a really hard schedule. 6 Hard Games and only the Finsl 2 Games should be easy

good, better to be faced with a challenge. no pain no gain

not like home court means anything anymore and the Raptors are at best a 1 in 50 of jumping the Bucks

Doesn't look too bad when you consider that the 8 **** teams aren't involved.

Are they just tacking 8 games on to the existing records regardless of games played and going by win/loss, winning % or some other thing? Seems insane to have the last few teams out there if they need to win 7 or 8 games and all of their opponents need to lose nearly every game.

Celtics with a decent chance of taking #2 from the flappy heads.

I have no idea what to expect from this but appreciate the NBA trying. I suspect some teams will be a shell of what they were and others will be normal/even better.

Kind of difficult to determine how hard the schedule is without knowing how serious each team will be. Teams could limit minutes played by starters. Teams could sit stars to avoid injury. Teams could run vanilla offensive and defensive schemes against likely playoff opponents. Teams could play 12 man rotations to get everyone in shape.

This could end up like a glorified preseason schedule .

There's no reason for the Bucks to care about winning any of these games. Their sole focus should be on getting ready for the playoffs.

Love that the Bucks can make this schedule as difficult as they need it to be. 6.5 up, they can secure the #1 seed and treat the rest of the games as their warmup.

Pacers sixers games are more important but I'm watching every single game as if it's a playoff game

More important for what? Matchups? There’s no actual home court so I wonder if teams will treat the games like preseason.

I can see it now. I’ll open up the browser to my league pass account the first weekend and will get a blue screen with the message:

I'll be shocked if the Pelicans don't make the play in tournament over the Blazers

The pelicans have 6 of their 8 games against current 8th seeds or worse, and one of their two games against more elite teams is against Utah. Utah iirc won’t have bogdanovic. I know the pels had one of the easiest remaining schedules, and I’m looking to complain here, but I can’t help but roll my eyes a bit at that one. The average win percentage of the teams there is about 57%, and the average win percentage of the pels opponents there will be under 50%.

Am I making this a bigger deal than it really is?

I’m glad we’re playing Miami. They’ll be one of our toughest possible opponents, and we have yet to beat them this year.

Seeding still matters. Rather play pacers than sixers in round two

(I was talking about their schedules, not us playing them)
