The only way this team wins 60+ games is if their top 10 rotational guys have excellent health all year. If Horford goes down for 10-12 games, IT misses a bunch because of his hip or any other important player goes down for a considerable amount of time, this team will have to turn to inexperienced NBA players. That means losses and no 60 win season.

Wouldn't be at all surprised if we started a bit slow like last year.

I expect us to play the games 30-80 at a 60 win pace.

On paper, yes. I think we win 60 :) I think we secure number 1 seed and this team, beat Cleveland in 7 games. Long live the king!

With a stronger West, can we get the best record in the NBA?

My prediction is that we play games 30-80 at a 67 win pace or so.

I reckon we should be expecting to win between 57-64, considering how good this team is and how weak the East is.

Good logic.
Still, it is hard for me to imagine the Warriors winning less than 65 games.
Can we get to 65? I doubt.

I think this is too much (hopefully not), and I'm going to explain why and what the goals for the season should be.

We have to remember that we are a bit thin of experience if we have a couple of injuries in our ten-man rotation, we have many new players to adjust and we can't still know if/when Isaiah will be playing.

I think 60 games is a bit too much for these factors. Anything beyond the 53 wins we've had this season would be very successful if we develop our young players in the process. What we must focus on is playoffs, we should at least take the Cavaliers into 6 games in the ECF.

This, along with at least a high draft pick in 2018, is what would bring ringchasers and players taking less money to play with us in the next and final step of reconstruction-development.
