    Nobody knew Portland was going to be this good. That was just unfortunate.

    I don't know if that is true. If your west coast trip is Portland, Dallas, San Antonio, OKC, and Houston. That is a lot tougher than having a west coast trip of Phoenix, Utah, San Antonio, Clippers, Sacramento. Back to backs, and the sequences of which you play teams also plays a factor in sos.
    ...because everyone knew that Portland and Dallas were really good back in July when the schedule was written up...what with their lottery appearances last season and all...

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    They play the kings the game before the blazers. And phoenix and GSW arent exactly looking fantastic this year either. Not all back to backs are equal.

    Hence the part where they got lucky with the schedule.

    Because the schedule maker also knew back in July that the warriors would regress this season after nearly knocking the spurs out a month before..

    Not only are the schedule makers biased, they're apparently claivoyant...

    (Edit) Only one person in this thread has actually suggested the schedule is biased. I don't think most of us actually believe that. Just saying Miami got lucky (so far) and Indiana somewhat unlucky.

    No conspiracy theory here at all, but these things can indeed have an impact on your record...

    We play the Heat 4 times during the season, right? If we split with them, as we have so far, we need a better record than them against the EC, right? Problem solved.

    You really need to read what people actually post.

    The Suns are off the charts compared to the expectations. They're actually (rumored) looking to trade a 1st round pick or something for veteran help. They were supposed to be in the Wiggins sweepstakes.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    The Pacers's schedule is pretty light for the next month. The only game that might give us trouble is at Atlanta on January 8th. After that the next hard game will be at home against the Clippers on January 18th.

    The point is that the schedule always evens out for teams that play in the same conference. It's not like the NFL were teams can have vastly different schedules.

    Right, that wasn't my point. The point is that one schedule can be more difficult than another.


    Edit: My original post wasn't intended to be taken so literally. Sorry.
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.

    Not exactly. Everyone in each conference plays basically the same teams the same number of times, but that's not the only factor in strength-of-schedule. There is the length of road trips, the quality of teams you pay on back-to-backs, how close together your games are (4 games in 5 nights, that kind of thing).

    Also I think this thread is mainly about who Miami has played SO FAR, and making an implication about what that says about their current record. I think it's totally fair to have a conversation about the strength-of-schedule about Indy and Miami so far, and strength-of-schedule going forward, and asking how that might impact the overall records from here on out.
