The Miami Heat have the Toughest Schedule Remaining (TSR) for the week of April 3, 2017. The Heat have three games this week – all on the road. The Heat play Wednesday in Charlotte, Toronto on Friday and then head to Washington for a back-to-back on Saturday.
The Philadelphia 76ers 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
