Vegas came out with their new rankings of how teams will finish this season. How many wins they think each team is going to get this season, mainly.
Not a surprise to anyone, Vegas has the Miami Heat getting the most wins this season. Behind the Heat, however, with the next best win total is the L.A. Clippers with 57. I tend to agree with the top 2. I really like what the Clippers have done this off season and they could be very good.
Vegas was not, however, very good to the Utah Jazz. They have the Jazz ranked to finish as the 4th worst team in the NBA this season. Finishing the season ranked above the Philadelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns, and the Orlando Magic and winning 27.5 games.
Personally, I think that the Jazz can finish higher than what Vegas has projected. Although, this season is very unpredictable. The main one that I disagree with on this list, is that they think the Jazz will finish the season worse than the Boston Celtics. I don’t see that happening. Boston should be terrible this season.
Training camp has started. The open free scrimmage is this Saturday at 4. The first preseason game is on Tuesday at Energy Solutions Arena against the Golden State Warriors. It’s time to get this season started and to show what we can do.
