Playoff Back to Backs: Possible in second round

There are some important things to note here, specifically the last two pieces of information. We all knew it was going to be tough to fit 66 games into such a short period of time, but playing back-to-back-to-backs 3 times in a season? i feel bad for the fans who pay full price for their seats when their team in on the third night of one of those.

Although it says that Playoff back-to-backs are possible, but what that really means is they are all but definite. Get ready for some really sloppy playoff basketball!
