The NBA will have a shorten schedule for the 2011-12 season as the teams will only play 66 games instead of 82. With that, squads will have to play more back-to-backs and in some cases they will have to hit the hardwood in three consecutive nights.
Most of the games lost will be inter-conference match-ups so fans who have favorite teams across the country may miss out in seeing games.
The 66-game schedule will be announced Tuesday, Dec. 6 on NBA TV at 7:00 P.M. EST. The Christmas day lineup is already determined but tune into NBA TV to see who else the Lakers play in this upcoming season.
