Does anyone know how they formulate the NBA schedules for each season? How do they figure out who will play who when? I know a lot of it must pertain to arena scheduling conflicts, but is there any sort of ryhme or reason to it besides that?

From doing a search online, I see that the NBA schedule is created by Bortz Media and Sports Group.
Here is some information about that from their website:

Not much help really.

Well, I can tell you that there's something of a rhyme and reason to it.

Everyone will play everyone else at least twice. Non-conference opponents meet twice, once on each team's home court. (For example, the Lakers and Pistons, guaranteed, will play one game at Staples Center and one game at the Palace every year).

Conference opponents, I believe, meet three or four times a year, with as close to an even split of home court as possible. (If the Heat and Pacers play four games in a year, they'll usually have two at Conseco Fieldhouse and two at AmericanAirlines Center. But if the Grizzlies and Sonics only meet three times, one team will get two home games and the other will get only one.)

Division opponents meet the most times-- I believe it's five or six times a year. Again, with as close to an even home-court split as possible.

In the end, every team plays 82 games-- 41 at home and 41 on the road. Usually the most consecutive road games a team will have at any point in the season is around six, but for some teams it could be longer than that. (The Chicago Bulls, for example, have an early-season road trip every year because of the circus, and I think this year it stretched as long as nine games).

No question it had the build-up befitting a Heavyweight Title fight (back when that meant something), but the game was a bit of an anti-climax. I'll still take UCLA-Houston in the Astrodome.
