The Memphis Grizzlies have the Toughest Schedule Remaining (TSR) for the week of March 20, 2017. The Grizzlies have three games this week – all on the road. The Grizz play Tuesday in New Orleans, Thursday in San Antonio and then head to the Bay Area to face Golden State on Sunday.
The Orlando Magic on the other hand have the “least tough” (aka easiest) schedule of the week. For the complete breakdown for all teams, check out the list below.
And remember, this new metric – known as a team’s “Toughest Schedule Remaining” (TSR) – provides a score between 0 and 1000 based on the difficulty of the upcoming schedule (during the next week or month, for example) assuming that team is of average quality. Let’s repeat that, we’re assuming whatever team we’re evaluating is an average team. This metric does not, then, take into account how good or bad said team is – the score would be exactly the same if a different team had the same schedule (opponent, miles travelled, rest, etc). #NBATSR
