I believe 8 of the first 12 are on the road. Just give me 4 of those 8, a 50/50 road record now and I will be happy.
Every team is going to have a weird schedule this year, but ours is definitely weighted more severely than most.

4 of the first 5 on the road
10 of the first 16 on the road
A stretch of 10 of 12 at home (including a stretch of 8 of 9 where the only road game is on Long Island)
6 of the last 9 on the road

We need to take advantage of late February and March...the schedule is insanely friendly in that stretch, but it's sandwiched between a lot of road games that bookend the season.

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
