Congratulations to everyone reading this article. Whether youíre fighting for your championship or just trying to win the NIT (the consolation bracket; also, I stole this joke), I applaud your success and commitment.

The Clippers are the only team with just two games this week. They are joined by the Suns as the only teams with four games through the end of the season. The Spurs, Cavaliers, Nuggets, Thunder, Mavericks, and Timberwolves play four games this week and two more next week, while the Grizzlies, Raptors, and Knicks play four this week but only one after that. Everyone else plays three games three games this week, and two next week. A final scheduling note: the Suns and Hornets are the only teams that do not play on the final day of the season, which is next Wednesday, April 14. Though those teams donít play the most games, fringe players have extra value since they wonít be stuck on fantasy benches on that final night.
