I'm going to go with 47-53

East is still incredibly weak, and Morris should help.

45 games, fifth seed.

Brown/Tatum step up in Haywards absence.

Take whatever your projection was pre-Hayward-injury and subtract, oh, 10.

Yeah, I think around 10 wins sounds about right. I went for 61 so about 51 now. That might still be enough to win top seed in the East. No powerhouses in the East.

55-60 wins still.

The East is terrible. The Celtics still have about the same talent as they did last year.

5th or 6th seed, 43-46 wins.
Cavs, Wizards, Bucks and Toronto are all better now. Going to take the C's some time to adjust without Hayward, they already had to adjust with him considering this was essentially a new team.
Those other four are coming back with similar rosters, there is no doubt in my mind they'll finish better then the C's.
I think we'll be battling Charlotte for the 5th or 6th seed.. maybe Philly surprises also?

I had projected 55 wins so I'll drop to 45 wins but I think that may be on the high side.  Our depth just isn't that good.  We're dependent on several young players who are going to make youthful mistakes and not perform consistently.  We can't afford any other significant injuries.  Smart may put up bigger number in more minutes but I don't expect significant improvement.  Kyrie may press to carry the team to show he's a #1 guy.

Yeah, I think we could still win 50 games if we stay reasonably healthy the rest of the way and our young guys progress like they should. We're still capable of being a 2-4 seed.

I'm feeling less optimistic.   

Without Gordon, we just don't have enough shooting. 

Defenses will swarm Kyrie's p&r's because neither Smart nor Brown is good enough 3pt threat to keep their opponents honest.   

Hate to say, but I think this is now a 40 win team.

You can't seriously think we're on the same level as Miami, Chicago, Denver and Portland's teams of last season, can you?

I get that losing Hayward is a pretty catastrophic event, but Brad had a team last year with similar, if not lesser talent levels than this one, win 53 games.

I have us down to 44 wins this year. Don't know where that places us in the playoff seedings but I think people will need to get used to the idea that we are probably a 1st round exit this year.

We just lost our best player. Not sure how anyone is still in the 50's.

I think Hayward subtracts around 5-10 wins depending on how you value him. Perhaps most importantly our margin for error for a slump year or another injury from being .500 team is now small.
