We’re going to see today just what happens when you let computers and voters decide who plays in the BCS championship game. I thought I’d pass along a link to Jeff Sagarin’s computer ratings for the NBA. Sagarin’s ratings for college football are included in the BCS.
It’s interesting to note that the Lakers’ strength of schedule, which takes into account the number of home games a team plays, is ranked 23rd right now. Chicago is No. 1 and Memphis is No. 2. The Celtics have had the easiest schedule, which doesn’t say much when you consider that they could be the NBA’s worst team right now.
The Lakers took Sunday off, which means they will have a long shoot-around Monday to get ready for Indiana.
