â€¢On the compressed season: It will run Dec. 25-April 26. Teams will average 3.9 games per week, up from usual 3.5 per week. About two extra games per month.
â€¢Teams will play 48 games in-conference (four fewer than usual) and 18 games out-of-conference. Thus, not all teams will visit all cities.
â€¢Every team will play at least one back-to-back-to-back set (i.e. three straight nights), and up to three back-to-back-to-back sets during season.
â€¢Also, every second-round playoff series will have at least one back-to-back set, to shorten the playoff time frame.
