2012-2013 Game-by-Game Predictions

To come up with my predicted records for each team in the NBA I make predictions for all 1,230 games of that NBA season.  Each year my goal is to have my predicted record for each team fall within five games of that team’s end of the season record.  For the 2012-2013 season I met my goal for a total of 20 teams (Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets, Charlotte Bobcats, Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, Milwaukee Bucks, New Orleans Hornets, Oklahoma City Thunder, Orlando Magic, Phoenix Suns, Portland Trail Blazers, Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs, Toronto Raptors, Utah Jazz and Washington Wizards).  I also predicted that the San Antonio Spurs, Utah Jazz, New Orleans Hornets and Phoenix Suns would each finish the regular season at 58-24, 43-39, 27-55 and 25-57 respectively.  The tables below compare my predictions with the actual results.  Teams are in the order that I predicted them to finish the season.
