Both of those scenarios seem like they are about 5 wins short. They won 55 games last season, with Hayward missing the whole season, Irving missing 22 games, and a 19 year old rookie in the starting line-up. I can't imagine (nor do I want to) a worst case scenario than what we experienced last season, so 47 wins seems far too low. Their best case scenario is 62 wins, assuming Irving and Hayward are healthy for the entire season? So a healthy Irving and Hayward, along with the second year from one of the most promising young players in the NBA, is only worth 7 wins max?

ESPN tends to go by point differential. The CBS factor is continuously forgotten.

I don't understand writers basing team's performance on Kyrie and Gordon's health. This team went to the ECF without them (1 game short of finals). A team that good should be able to win 60 games.

Best Case: 65-17, Houston's record last season seems like a good benchmark.

Worst Case: 54-28, I can't see how they could be significantly worse than last season. It just wouldn't make sense, even if there were injuries.

My Predication: 62-20

Who would have imagined that ESPN's low projection of 47 might actually be overshooting based on the first 20 games.

Yesterday, I was trying to convince myself that it was still early in the season and the Celtics could still match my prediction, they'd just have to go... *does math in head*... 52-10?! Yikes. That's tough.

They're 11-10 now. To make my worst case (54 wins) they have to go 43-18 which would be a .705 win %, equal to 57-58 wins. I do think this team has lots of talent and if they get their roles figured out, hitting 54-55 wins is totally in play.
