I took the 1st 15 games from each team as an opening period and projected the game results. Don't put your money on this. :)

I think Brooklyn will start quickly and catch a few teams (like Orlando) off guard. They play a very up tempo style and should gel as a team quite quickly as they've got a lot of the same pieces as last year. I can certainly see them beating LAL as well, I can see Russell quite motivated for that game.

Not sure I see LAL beating LAC or Detroit but I'd expect them to pick up a surprise win somewhere. LAC should destroy them though.

Yes, I predicted that Blake wouldn't be ready/100% and as you said, an early surprise win here or there.

Ah, didn't realise Blake was potentially out, that makes it much more interesting
