Cleveland Cavaliers Game Live

With the Cleveland Cavaliers losing badly against the Golden State Warriors in last season’s NBA finals, Cavs fans want the team to bounce back and win once more. However, the real question is whether they stand a chance in the Eastern Conference to go head to head with the Warriors again.

Unfortunately, the predictions don’t seem to be in favor of the Cavs this upcoming season. Despite the Cavs acquiring former league MVP Derrick Rose, the Boston Celtics are expected to dominate the Eastern Conference with another 50-win season. This number is based on the Celtics acquiring former Utah Jazz forward Gordon Hayward. Likewise, a recent trade between the Cavs and the Celtics sent All-Star guard Kyrie Irving in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder and Ante Zizic. This trade is a definite game-changer for both teams.

Nonetheless, the Cleveland Cavaliers are still given a fighting chance against the Celtics, with 49.2 projected wins. The decline from last season’s 51 wins is attributed to the aging of team veterans. The good news is All-Star Kevin Love is still young, and King LeBron James, at 32, is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon. The Cavs also have to look out for the Washington Wizards, with 47.5 projected wins. Sports enthusiasts are also expecting a lot from the Milwaukee Bucks with 46.9 projected wins, a leap from last season’s 42 wins.

With that said, it seems that the Celtics will be the biggest challenge for the Cavaliers in this season’s Eastern Conference. The numbers reveal that both teams will again be neck and neck with each other. However, although the projected wins for the Golden State Warriors seem to have declined to 62.1, it is still a far cry from Boston’s and Cleveland’s.

It must be noted that these numbers are based on each team’s Real Plus Minus or adjusted box score metric. Although it helps with predictions, it is not always accurate.
