I hate to be all conspiratorial, but the bottom of the list is a who's who of big market/high TV ratings contenders (NYK, LAC, Chi, Bkn, GSW, Mia, Okc) while the three finals ratings nightmare contenders (Mem, SA, Ind) are all in the top half. The only team missing from the TV favorites is Houston.

Eh, I guess you could look at it as a conspiracy, lol. But at least our back to backs are front loaded (9 in Nov/Dec, 10 the rest of the year) If we can make it to January with a good record then maybe it will be smooth sailing. The heat may have fewer back to backs than the spurs, but if you look at their schedule in march (5 B2B's and a stretch of 4 games in 5 nights), I think I prefer the extra back to backs.

On a side note, the spurs have 19 B2B's, and yet there are 11 times where they have 2 consecutive days off, 2 times with 3 consecutive days off, and 2 times with 4 consecutive days off. I understand the National TV schedule makes it difficult to schedule these games evenly, but I feel like they could cut 3 or 4 preseason games out and eliminate B2B's altogether..

The Rodeo Road Trip may always keeps the Spurs high on the list of B2bs.
