NBA scheduling will always make sure that teams know their divisional and other conference opponents very well.

Conference members stand to face each other at least twice a year with divisional opponents usually scheduled to face each other four times in a season.

Every so often, a team from one coast will test their mettle against adversaries on the other side of the Mississippi, but those expeditions are usually one-and-done deals that are hardly repeated.

With the second half of this NBA season set to kick off, there are going to be dozens of games that will be said to have “playoff implications.”

As fun as that phrase is to toss around, it pales in comparison to the other kitschy locution of “potential NBA Finals matchup.”

The Chicago Bulls started off their schedule in California running the state’s entire team gauntlet of the Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, Sacramento Kings and the Los Angeles Clippers.
