The Utah Jazz have the Toughest Schedule Remaining (TSR) for the month of April. The Jazz play 6 games this month with half at home. They also travel only 3,947 miles to travel (which ranks 6th most over this time period).
The Golden State Warriors on the other hand have the “least tough” (aka easiest) schedule of the month. 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
