Beck: "Back-to-Back-to-Back" Is Back

Players will be tired. Howard Beck in a series of tweets has more details on the NBA's condensed schedule.

--Every team will have at least one back-to-back-back (three games in three nights) on their schedule, with some having  three of them. Last time the NBA had back-to-back-to-back was back in 1999.

--Season will be extended to April 26, about 10 days later than normal, with teams averaging 3.9 games a week, instead of 3.5.

--Teams will play 48 games in-conference (down from 52) and 18 games out-of-conference. All teams won't visit all cities.

--Every second-round playoff series will have a back-to-back, to shorten playoffs.
