Random NBA Fan’s Week 25 Prediction Results

Before the start of the season, I made predictions for all 1,230 games.  For Week 25 (Monday, April 13 through Wednesday, April 15 – the final week of the regular season), I correctly predicted 15 of the 29 games that were played.  Every team, except for the Phoenix Suns (whose one game I failed to predict correctly), played two games this week and I correctly predicted the results of those games for 10 teams: the Atlanta Hawks, Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks, Denver Nuggets, Golden State Warriors, Indiana Pacers, Memphis Grizzlies, Miami Heat and Washington Wizards.  And in addition to the Phoenix Suns, I also incorrectly predicted the games played by nine other teams: the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks, Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Pelicans, Oklahoma City Thunder, Sacramento Kings and Toronto Raptors.

Random NBA Fan’s Week 3 Prediction Results

Before the start of the season, I made predictions for all 1,230 games.  Through three weeks, I have correctly predicted the results of 95 of the 145 games that have been played.  For the third consecutive week I correctly predicted the result of each game played by the Minnesota Timberwolves.

In addition to correctly predicting all three games that the Timberwolves played during Week 3 (Monday, November 10 through Sunday, November 16), I also correctly predicted each game for the Boston Celtics (2), Cleveland Cavaliers (3), Dallas Mavericks (3), Memphis Grizzlies (3), New Orleans Pelicans (3), Philadelphia 76ers (2) and Washington Wizards (2), which led to me correctly picking 31 of the 48 games played for the week.

2014-2015 NBA Eastern Conference Preview

Based on my predictions for all 1,230 regular-season games for the 2014-2015 NBA season, here is my predicted order of finish for the Eastern Conference:

1. Chicago Bulls (60-22)

The return of Derrick Rose and the addition of Pau Gasol should help the Bulls address their shortcomings on the offensive side of the ball.

2. Cleveland Cavaliers (58-24)

LeBron James’ return will make Cleveland relevant in the Eastern Conference for the first time since James’ infamous departure back in 2010.

3. Brooklyn Nets (48-34)

Lionel Hollins, task master that he is, will get the most out of the Nets no matter how many games Brook Lopez misses or plays this season.

4. Miami Heat (46-36)

Despite the departure of LeBron James, Erik Spoelstra should be able to lead an experienced Heat squad with the likes of Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade supported by Luol Deng and Danny Granger to a spot in the top four of the weak East.

5. Toronto Raptors (41-41)

After a surprising Atlantic Division title last season, opponents will pay a little bit more attention to the Raptors this season.

6. New York Knicks (40-42) 4th tiebreaker, predicted to go 29-23 in Conference

Although they will likely struggle early on and will probably have their ups and downs as they adjust to the triangle offense, the Knicks will probably get enough out of the Carmelo Anthony and company to squeak into the postseason.

7. Washington Wizards (40-42) 4th tiebreaker, predicted to go 28-24 in Conference

Can the Wizards, who remained relatively healthy—for them—last season, get another 155 games out of Bradley Beal and John Wall this season?  With Beal likely to miss the first few weeks of the season with a wrist injury, it seems unlikely.

8. Atlanta Hawks (39-43)

Atlanta has made the playoffs an Eastern Conference high seven straight times and despite a tumultuous offseason, the return of Al Horford should help the Hawks push that streak to eight.

9. Charlotte Hornets (37-45)

10. Detroit Pistons (30-52)

11. Indiana Pacers (26-56) 5th tiebreaker, predicted to go 10-19 against predicted playoff teams in East

12. Boston Celtics (26-56) 5th tiebreaker, predicted to go 10-20 against predicted playoff teams in East

13. Milwaukee Bucks (23-59)

14. Orlando Magic (20-62)

15. Philadelphia 76ers (18-64)
