72 game season. Betting odds have us winning 34. Take the over but still 8th now.

 

Eastern Conference over/under win totals - PointsBet Futures

1. Milwaukee Bucks: 49.0

2. Boston Celtics: 49.0

3. Brooklyn Nets: 49.0

4. Miami Heat: 43.0

5. Philadelphia 76ers: 43.0

6. Toronto Raptors: 41.0

7. Indiana Pacers: 39.5

8. Atlanta Hawks: 34

9. Orlando Magic: 31.5

10. Chicago Bulls: 30

11. Washington Wizards: 28.5

12. Charlotte Hornets: 26.5 

13. Detroit Pistons: 24

14. New York Knicks: 22.5

15. Cleveland Cavaliers: 22.0

I'd take under on the top 3 and hope to win 2 of those bets.  Winning 68% of your games is no joke.  Historically, there are usually 2 teams that do win at that rate, but there's no guarantee it will be the Bucks/Celtics/Nets.  I could see the 76ers or Heat making a big regular season leap

Being realistic, I see us wining 40 +/- 3 games. You still have to learn to win.

That 37 to 43 win range would all be winning records (>50%).  We definitely aren't elite but a winning record is very much in play.

We have talent and depth that now needs to gel and be coached for us to win.

Along with the FAs, we expect growth from our young wings, a healthy Capela and continued improvement from Trae and Collins.

LP was getting a lot of coach of the year nods going into year 2. Now he is the most question piece. Why is it so hard to see that Travis tanked last year's squad to lose more games and this year, he suped it up to be a winner.

If this Hawk team is 8th in the east, someone had better get their stuff together and be ready to fight this 8th place team.  You say, Hawks will not win 1/2 their games?  Prove it!

I like LP but there ain’t no reason to give him coach of the year nods right now . But now that he has a team we are really going to see what he’s made of!

im actually slightly nervous about it for him .
