The final BoxScoreGeeks ranking is out. We're ranked #2 in the East ... which makes us #7 in the NBA. Only us and the Cavs rank in the top 8 teams in the NBA.
If we can perform to expectations, that means we make it to the Eastern finals this year ... and it's not unthinkable to end up playing for the championship (you heard it here first ).
Their odds for who finishes first in the East are:
50% - the Cavs
30% - the Raps
10% - the Bulls
10% - the field (Atlanta 3% and on down from there)
We're also the team most likely to win its division, with an 81% chance, higher even than the chances that Cleveland or San Antonio win their respective divisions.
Anyway, lots of interesting forecast details in here. Here's the link:
