More 2010-11 Schedule Analysis

Josh Robbins of the Magic Basketblog on The Orlando Sentinel website has a comparison of the back-to-back games on the respective 2010-11 schedules of the Atlanta Hawks, Orlando Magic, Miami Heat, Boston Celtics, and Chicago Bulls.

There's a handy chart there delineating all of this but the main points of interest are as follows:
  • The Hawks and Bulls play the maximum allowed number of back-to-backs: 23.
  • In 16 of the Hawks 23 back-to-backs, the second game is on the road.
  • The Bulls play on the road in just 11 of the 23 second games of their back-to-backs.
  • The Bulls also get 4 home-home back-to-back games.
  • Orlando plays three fewer back-to-backs than the Hawks will but the Magic play 17 of the 20 second games on the road.

I wonder how much of that is due to the fact Atlanta and Chicago are two primary hubs for U.S. air travel.
