New NBA Schedule Features Fewest Ever Back-To-Backs

The schedule for the 2018/19 NBA regular season, officially unveiled by the league on Friday, will feature the fewest back-to-backs in league history. On average, teams will play on consecutive nights 13.3 times in ’18/19, with no club playing more than 15 back-to-backs.

Under the newest Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NBA and players’ union, the league has been scheduling an earlier opening night, extending the regular season in order to allow players more rest in between games. This season’s schedule, which begins on October 16, will feature no instances of a team playing four games in five nights or eight games in 12 nights.

Some of the notable games include LeBron James‘ return to Cleveland on November 21, Kawhi Leonard‘s first game in San Antonio with the Raptors on January 3  and Gordon Hayward‘s first game in Utah as a member of the Celtics on November 9,
