According to USATODAY/Jeff Sagarin the Blazers have played the second toughest schedule in the NBA thus far. It doesn’t factor in back-to-backs just who they played and where they played the game.
The schedule really starts to balance out Jan. 15th with this sweet stretch: NJ, MIN, @SAC, LAC, IND, SAC, then as Jan. winds down and Feb. begins they have three tougher games with BOS, SAS, @DEN, but then they get @ IND, @CLE, CHI, @TOR, @ DET, @MIN, then they finish with a struggling N.O. team at home before the break.
Jan 15th-Feb 16th is the stretch to watch out for, we could go into the ASB with a hot streak…I think they go 11-5 or 12-4 for that month.
