Rockets coach Blasts 'Ridiculous' Scheduling By NBA

After a loss to the Raps! lol (not that it has anything to do with it)

Rick Adelman was critical of the NBA for setting up an "utterly ridiculous" schedule for his team that includes four back-to-back games over the next two weeks.

The Rockets face Detroit at home on Tuesday, then must fly to Denver to play the first-place Nuggets on Wednesday. They visit Dallas on Friday and return home to face Oklahoma City on Saturday; then have to play two games on consecutive nights twice more during Christmas week.

"We have a horrendous stretch here," Adelman said. "I don't know if the league really understands that they gave us four straight back-to-backs. It's awful.

"It's utterly ridiculous," Adelman said. "But that's the schedule we have, it's just the way it is and we're just going to have to respond to it."

Stern still despises Adelman for almost ruining the Lakers dynasty..

back to backs get really hard in the winter because of flight delays
you can end up arriving to a city at 3 in the morning then you have to play a game the same day
