Revisiting Early-Season Narratives, Predictions

Jabari Davis takes a look back at some of the false narratives and predictions discussed entering the season.

Entering the season, most of us tend to make predictions and presumptions (in many cases) about which teams will ultimately battle for the Larry O’Brien trophy, how a particular draft pick might fare at this level and which new additions could potentially flourish in new surroundings among plenty of other topics of deliberation. The 2014-15 NBA season was no exception to such forecasting, as there were plenty of intriguing storylines, newly-formed alliances and several players attempting to defy odds in some form or fashion. Let’s take a quick, fun look back at some of the predictions and common lines of thought shared as we headed into the year:

The Cleveland Cavaliers would run through the competition in the East

While that certainly didn’t appear to be the case in the early going – especially prior to the moves that reshaped the roster – the Cavaliers appear to finally be in the groove many of us figured they would eventually find. Make no mistake, as although a slow start absolutely should have been anticipated given all of the moving parts and circumstances, this is a team that probably wouldn’t be in the position it is currently in without the moves made to not only acquire guys like Timofey Mozgov, J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert but also in jettisoning a former first-rounder (fourth overall) in Dion Waiters to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Waiters remains a talented player with promise, but is was clear there were chemistry issues that required a change of scenery.

They’ve clearly figured things out between finding a way to mesh the styles of LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, but there should still be legitimate concerns over how Kevin Love is being utilized over major stretches of games. Put simply, while Love may not be a guy you’d trust to carry a team on his back to a Finals run, the 26-year-old power forward has much more versatility to his game than is currently being displayed with the Cavs. Love didn’t just forget how to play the game all of a sudden, and absolutely to his credit, he’s played the “good soldier” throughout the year and Euro-stepped his way out of several potential media fires along the way.

The team is currently winning and competing at its highest level so far, and while Love is wise and professional enough not to complain, it is difficult to believe he is satisfied with essentially being used as a glorified spot-up shooter from either corner. Cleveland may be rolling at this stage and appear to headed for a deep playoff run, but you’d imagine they’ll eventually need to find a way to mask or off-set the defensive concerns the coaching staff may have with Love playing in the fourth quarters of tight games as well as maximizing what is actually a well-rounded offensive skill set from the seven-year veteran if they are going to truly compete for a title.

The Bulls, Wizards and Raptors will each compete for the Eastern Conference title

Although the Bulls should absolutely remain a wildcard in the discussion among the Cavs and Atlanta Hawks, it is clear that some of us may have been guilty of a bit of conjecture when it came to Washington and Toronto.

After semi-successful yet promising playoff runs following the 2013-14 season, many of us (hand raised) anticipated each of those teams taking another step in terms of being contenders for the East’s crown. John Wall took that proverbial next step over the past couple seasons and has developed into one of the league’s best young point guards and Bradley Beal was expected to enjoy a similar trajectory coming off of an impressive playoff performance. Unfortunately, that progress simply has yet to come to fruition, as Beal missed the first nine games of the year due to a broken wrist and another nine games here of late with a foot injury.

Wall should absolutely be credited for playing in each of their 65 games, although battling what has been reported as ongoing knee pain. He’s still been special (17 points, 10 assists, 4.5 rebounds, 1.8 steals), but can hardly be expected to offset every deficiency each game.

The combination of an emerging Otto Porter Jr. and the veteran presence of Paul Pierce were also expected to be enough to offset the loss of Trevor Ariza. Outside of a few moments, games and short stretches here and there, that dynamic simply hasn’t materialized and the Wizards end up being overly reliant upon Wall to be special on just about every play.

The Raptors have endured their share of injuries as well, and find themselves in the similar position of relying upon point guard Kyle Lowry to play out of his mind on most nights. DeMar DeRozan finally looks like himself after being slowed by injuries, but it has yet to translate into team success and the Raptors find themselves potentially trapped in middle ground mediocrity. The truth of the matter is, beyond needing another contributing player at the deadline, the Raptors really needed guys like Jonas Valanciunas and Terrence Ross to take larger steps forward in terms of overall progress as players and that simply hasn’t transpired for Dwane Casey and crew this year.

The Bulls, on the other hand, should still be considered a wildcard team, as they’ve managed to remain in the hunt even though enduring a ridiculous amount of injuries of their own. Although they aren’t what they once were defensively, this is still a team hovering around the top-10 (11th) in terms of points allowed and with the addition of Pau Gasol, the progression of Jimmy Butler and the play of Nikola Mirotic, they are far more dangerous on the offensive end than in previous seasons. If Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose are available for the postseason, we still have every reason to consider the Bulls as legitimate contenders to make a run.

It’s time to finally write the San Antonio Spurs off

Haven’t we all learned our lessons when it comes to San Antonio? If we’re being honest, they remain competitive even in what would be considered “down years,” but there really was no need to preemptively kick dirt over their proverbial graves given how Gregg Popovich continues to manipulate and get the absolute most out of his entire roster.

Now, admittedly, things did look a bit more bleak than usual while they struggled through their annual rodeo trip (4-5), but that was clearly more about the preservation of the team’s overall health (Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard in particular) than any true indication of things to come. Time will tell whether they have another Finals run in the tank, but with only four games separating them from the second seed in what remains a tough conference, would any of us be all that shocked to see these very Spurs that so many attempted to write off eventually find a way to leapfrog some of their competitors out West?

While you contemplate an answer that should be clear, keep in mind the fact that said Spurs also have eight games remaining against teams currently in playoff positions. By the way, it took a career-high (57 points) and absolutely phenomenal overtime performance by Kyrie Irving and the Cavs in order to stop the six-game roll the Spurs were on.

The James Harden and Dwight Howard experiment in Houston would fail

In fairness to those of us that questioned their leadership and ability to galvanize this group, there were legitimate concerns heading into the year with which direction the team might be headed. The loss of guys like Chandler Parsons, Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik required definite adjustments for the team (even though Harden and Howard didn’t want to publicly acknowledge this). The ongoing health concerns of Howard were also concerning.

But Harden has, without equivocation, been absolutely fantastic for Houston this season and deserves all of the MVP talk and consideration he’s received given the circumstances the Rockets have overcome. Howard has actually missed over half of the team’s games mainly due to ongoing knee issues, but you certainly wouldn’t know it as Houston (21-12 sans Howard) has hardly skipped a beat in his absence.

GM Daryl Morey should be credited for going out and acquiring Corey Brewer and Josh Smith in order to solidify the rotation and the progress and steady play of guys like Donatas Motiejunas, Patrick Beverley and Terrence Jones must be acknowledged. But if we’re doling out rewards for services rendered, Harden clearly takes the crown for these 2014-15 Rockets.

A specific return date for Howard (one-to-three weeks away, reportedly) hasn’t been designated, but it will be interesting to see how the team adjusts to his presence and altered roles once the eight-time All-Star returns to the lineup. One thing that has been made abundantly clear is that regardless of his eventual return, Harden has established himself as the unquestioned on-court leader of the Rockets moving forward.

Teams like Memphis may have difficulty keeping pace in today’s NBA

Wrong! It may sound completely foolish at this point, but there were plenty of people (again, hand raised) that wondered whether the Grizzlies might have to adjust their approach given the current trend of more and more NBA teams resorting to perimeter-oriented play with such a focus on three-point shooting.

In a league where an unprecedented amount of threes are taken and much of the league is attempting to run with smaller lineups in order to increase the tempo and create or exploit mismatches, the Grizzlies still prefer to apply maximum defensive pressure and grind it out with you for a full 48 minutes (barring overtime). They’ve actually managed to put together a roster so diverse they are actually able to force teams to pick their poison on most nights.

Mike Conley is quite possibly the most underrated star player around and their tandem of Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol is still arguably the best frontcourt in the league. General manager Chris Wallace and that front office have done a phenomenal job of shaping this roster, as guys like Courtney Lee, Jeff Green and even a vet like Vince Carter (when healthy) have played very well within the roles carved out for them.

Teams like the Warriors, Blazers and Clippers may get a majority of the headlines, but the reality is the Grizzlies may just be the toughest team to matchup with when you start looking at facing them for a seven-game series.

Again, there’s no such thing as an exact science when it comes to preseason prognostication, especially since one of the greatest things about each NBA season is the unpredictable nature from year to year. Team chemistry and a player’s comfort within new surroundings and systems run hand-in-hand with overall success. Just ask those of us that expected Lance Stephenson to flourish under Steve Clifford and the Charlotte Hornets to propel themselves into (at least) the middle of the pack in the Eastern Conference.

NBA Daily: The Lakers’ Path Back to the NBA Finals

In the wake of Jamal Murray’s season-ending knee injury, Bobby Krivitsky examines the Los Angeles Lakers’ path back to the NBA Finals.

Bobby Krivitsky

on

It’s been 15 games since a high ankle sprain sidelined LeBron James. 

With the Western Conference standings congested as ever and Anthony Davis already out due to a right calf strain and a re-aggravation of his right Achilles tendinosis, the Los Angeles Lakers faced the threat of a fall that might have led to their participation in the NBA’s new play-in tournament.

Though they’ve gone just 7-8, the Lakers have fought admirably in the absence of their two stars and, as a result, their drop in the standings has been rather painless, falling from third at the time of James’ injury to now fifth in the West.

The primary reason the Lakers have been able to tread water without their two stars is they’ve remained stingy on defense. Since James’ injury, they have the fourth-best defensive rating in the league. That’s despite facing four teams who rank in the top five in offensive rating and six of the categories’ top-10 members.

Right now, the Lakers are 2.5 games ahead of the sixth-seeded Portland Trail Blazers, with a 4.5-game cushion between them and the Dallas Mavericks, who are seventh in the conference. That should be a large enough gap to keep Los Angeles out of the play-in tournament, but the two teams are going to converge for a two-game series starting Thursday. For the Lakers, getting swept would re-open the possibility of having to compete in the play-in tournament.

Fortunately for them, even splitting that series would make it unlikely the Mavericks finish ahead of the Lakers in the standings. And help might be on the way for the Lakers: Davis may soon rejoin the lineup, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, meaning there’s a distinct possibility he’s active for at least one of those two matchups. As for James, he’s on track to return in three weeks.

While Los Angeles’ stars are getting closer to making their returns, the Denver Nuggets got dealt a more severe blow when Jamal Murray tore his ACL in a recent game against the Golden State Warriors. Denver is 10-2 since acquiring Aaron Gordon at the trade deadline and looked the part of a legitimate title contender prior to Murray’s injury. 

Denver is fourth in the West, 1.5 games ahead of Los Angeles. But even if the Nuggets have home-court advantage, they’re the preferable opening-round opponent, not just for Los Angeles, but any team with a legitimate chance at the fourth or fifth seed.

Fortunately for the Lakers, that’s the place in the Western Conference pecking order where they’re most likely to finish this season. So long as the Nuggets don’t freefall in Murray’s absence, Los Angeles will likely start the playoffs against an opponent that’s gone from having the potential to present the greatest challenge to the defending champions’ quest to get back to the Finals to becoming a desirable first-round matchup.

After that, the Lakers may have to get past the Utah Jazz and or the Los Angeles Clippers to make a return trip to the NBA Finals. The former has the best record in the league this season, but locking horns with the defending champions in a best of seven series is a far more challenging and potentially rewarding proving ground.

The Jazz have a deep, reliable rotation, they have the best net rating in the NBA, they’re in the top five in points for and against per 100 possessions, and they’re attempting the most threes per game, but also rank in the top five in three-point shooting percentage. However, the Lakers would have the two best players in a series against Utah. Usually, an opponent doesn’t overcome that disadvantage.  

As for the Clippers, Rajon Rondo has quickly proven to be an impactful acquisition. Los Angeles is seven and one with him in the lineup, generating the highest net rating in the league during that span. Last season, the Lakers saw first-hand how impactful playoff Rondo can be. Now, the Clippers are hoping he can bring structure to their offense, something they sorely lacked last postseason and was at the forefront of them blowing a 3-1 series lead over the Nuggets. Doing so would go a long way towards maximizing the production of a team that has the talent to hoist the Larry O’Brien Trophy for the first time in franchise history.

If this is the year the battle of LA takes place in the postseason, it figures to be a slugfest. Still, the Clippers have their doubters after last year’s meltdown in the playoffs. There’s also a large contingency who are skeptical about how far the Jazz can go in the postseason, given their lack of a top-tier superstar. Despite the validity of those concerns, both teams can beat the Lakers in a best of seven series. That no longer appears to be the case for the Nuggets, which is a shame for them and people who want to see the best possible matchups in the playoffs. But Murray’s injury, as unfortunate an occurrence as it is, makes it easier for the Lakers to get through the gauntlet that is the Western Conference and have a chance to claim an 18th championship, which would break their tie with the Boston Celtics for the most titles in NBA history.

NBA AM: The Play-In Game – West

With the season winding down, Ariel Pacheco takes a look at how the play-in tournament is shaping up in the Western Conference.

With the regular season’s end in sight, teams are making their last push to make the playoffs in what has been a condensed season. But the new play-in tournament is providing more teams than ever a chance at a coveted playoff spot.

Here is what the new play-in tournament will look like: Teams that finish with the Nos 7 and 8 seeds will face off against each other. The winner of this game will be No. 7. The Nos. 9 and 10 seeds will also play and the winner will play the loser of the first game. The winner of this game will be the No. 8 seed. 

The play-in tournament provides intrigue and adds pressure on teams in both conferences to finish in the top six and avoid the play-in altogether. The Western Conference, in particular, is shaping up to have a rather exciting finish. There are a number of teams who could find themselves fighting for their playoff lives in this year’s tournament – all below in tiers.

Teams Likely To Avoid Play-In

Portland Trail Blazers (32-24)
Games Left: 16
Home Games Left: 8
Games Against Teams Over .500: 12
Games Against West: 11

The Trail Blazers are currently the sixth seed in the West meaning, for now, they are safe from the play-in tournament. However, they are just two games above the Mavericks from possibly dropping down a place. They’re the team most likely to secure that sixth seed because they have more talent than the teams below them – hello, Dame – and they also have an elite offense. However, the defensive concerns are very real and if they were to slip, it would likely be because of their struggles on that side of the ball.

Likely Play-In Teams

Dallas Mavericks

Games Left: 16
Home Games Left: 9
Games Against Teams Over .500: 5
Games Against West: 8

On paper, the Mavs have a really easy schedule as the season winds down. They have just five games against teams over .500 and two against the Los Angeles Lakers, who may be without their two stars for those games. However, they are just 10-12 this season against sub .500 teams and are coming off a disappointing loss to the Sacramento Kings. There’s still a pretty good chance they get the sixth seed and avoid the play-in, but it also wouldn’t be surprising to see them in it as well.

Memphis Grizzlies
Games Left: 17
Home Games Left: 7
Games Against Teams Over .500: 8
Games Against West: 12

The Grizzlies are often overlooked, but they are about as well-coached as any other team in the NBA. It is likely they will be in the play-in game, but don’t be surprised if they are able to sneak into the sixth seed. They lost last year’s play-in game in the Bubble to the Blazers, so they do have experience in this type of setting. They may be getting Jaren Jackson Jr. back soon which should help. 

Golden State Warriors
Games Left: 15
Home Games Left: 9
Games Against Teams Over .500: 6
Games Against West: 13

The Warriors are getting just other-worldly performances from Stephen Curry on an almost nightly basis at this point. However, they continue to struggle to win games, in large part due to the struggles when he sits on the bench. Their schedule is pretty light to close the season, which bolsters their chances. The talent on this team isn’t great, but Curry’s play should be enough to get them in the play-in tournament. 

San Antonio Spurs
Games Left: 17
Home Games Left: 6
Games Against Teams Over .500: 12
Games Against West: 7

The Spurs have struggled of late, especially after the All-Star break. Their defense has dropped off badly, but if there’s any reason to be positive, it’s that they are still coached by Gregg Popovich and their young guys continue to show improvement. They have been really good on the road this season and a majority of their games are on the road. It won’t be easy, but the Spurs should find themselves in the play-in tournament.

Outside Looking In

New Orleans Pelicans
Games Left: 15
Home Games Left: 6
Games Against Teams Over .500: 9
Games Against West: 11

The Pelicans have been hit with the injury bug of late, but their inconsistent play this season continues to be a huge problem. Their defense continues to bleed three-pointers and while point Zion Williamson has worked, there just isn’t enough shooting to maximize him just yet. It seems unlikely the Pelicans make a late-season run to the play-in game.

Sacramento Kings

Games Left: 15
Home Games Left: 8
Games Against Teams Over .500: 8
Games Against West: 14

The Kings are the least likely team to make the play-in tournament. Their defense is still problematic and they just recently ended their 9-game losing streak. It’ll take a huge late-season push and the Kings just haven’t shown that they are capable of putting it all together for a long enough stretch. 

The play-in tournament adds a new layer of competition that will bring excitement at the end of the season. Be sure to check out how the play-in tournament is shaping up in the Eastern Conference.

NBA Daily: The Play-In Game — East

With the play-in tournament just around the corner, Matt John previews who in the Eastern Conference might qualify for it.

Matt John

Published

on

It’s official: we’re entering the regular season’s endgame. Every game from here on out will have much bigger consequences, a statement even truer in 2021 than perhaps any other season thanks to the NBA’s new play-in tournament.

If you’re not familiar, the play-in tournament will consist of two matchups within each conference. The seventh and eighth seeds of both conferences will face off against one another, while the ninth and 10th seeds shall do the same. The winner of the seven-eight matchup will take their conference’s seventh seed, while the winner of the nine-10 game will face the aforementioned match’s loser for the eighth and final spot in the postseason. It’ll serve as a nice appetizer before the playoffs get underway.

So, now that we have 15 games left give or take, it’s time to get a full scope of who we’re most likely to see in this year’s play-in, starting with the Eastern Conference. There’s really no need to go over teams that have all but clinched their playoff spots like Philadelphia, Brooklyn, or Milwaukee. Just like there’s no need to mention teams that are way too out of a reach for a playoff spot like Detroit and Orlando.

But that does leave ten teams in the Eastern Conference that we could potentially see in the play-in. At first glance, it would sound ridiculous to say that Boston and Cleveland could be in the play-in seeing how they are separated by ten and a half games, but Boston is only two and a half games ahead of Miami for that seventh seed while Cleveland is only three games behind Chicago for the tenth seed.

The best way to evaluate is to divide these into tiers. One for playoff teams who are likely to avoid the play-in, one for teams that are most likely to be in the play-in, and those that are likely to miss out on the play-in.

Likely to Avoid

Atlanta Hawks (30-26)
Games Left: 16
Home Games Left: 11
Games Against Teams Over .500: Six
Games Against East: 13

Replacing Lloyd Pierce with Nate McMillan proved to be a genius move by Atlanta’s front office, as the Hawks have won 16 of their last 23 games. They may have had that stretch where they lost four of five, but that was on a West Coast Trip. Seeing how almost 75 percent of their remaining games will be at home, it’s hard to see Atlanta collapsing. They may be decimated by injuries right now, but the schedule seems a little too easy for them to blow this.

Boston Celtics (31-26)
Games Left: 15
Home Games Left: Eight
Games Against Teams Over .500: Four
Games Against East: 10

Much like Atlanta, Boston’s really hit their stride over the past few weeks. Getting healthy and making a few roster changes have helped them rediscover the team that started out so well at the beginning of the season. It’s hard seeing Boston folding down the stretch primarily because they won’t be facing too many strong opponents from here until the regular season’s end. Given their recent strong play, don’t expect an appearance at the play-in tournament.

Likely Play-In Teams

New York Knicks (30-27)
Games Left: 15
Home Games Left: Nine
Games Against Teams Over .500: Eight
Games Against East: Six

Give credit where credit is due. The Knickerbockers are not going away. They’ve stayed the course when many thought this was going to be another wasted year for them. They’ve given no reason to indicate that they’re stopping now. The reason they’re not as sure of a thing as Atlanta or Boston is because, over this last stretch, they’re going to face off against several Western Conference contenders looking for the highest seeding possible. As tough as that’s going to be, the Knicks are going to make each one of them earn those wins, guaranteed.

Miami HEAT (28-28)
Games Left: 16
Home Games Left: Eight
Games Against Teams Over .500: Seven
Games Against East: 11

It’s been difficult to get a read on the reigning Eastern Conference champions. They go on stretches that basically even out each other. After starting out 11-17, they win 12 of their next 13, then follow that up by losing their next six games, then win six of their next seven, then finally and most recently, they lose their next three games. No one really knows what Miami’s ceiling is right now. Odds are, the HEAT will probably be in the play-in. It’s just a matter of where. Also, why have we still not gotten any updates on Victor Oladipo?

Charlotte Hornets (27-28)
Games Left: 17
Home Games Left: 11
Games Against Teams Over .500: Eight
Games Against East: 13

What’s happened to the Hornets over the past few weeks is just straight up not fair. If LaMelo Ball and Gordon Hayward were playing, they’d solidly be in the same tier as Boston and Atlanta. With their squad fully healthy, Charlotte’s a playoff team, but being down their two best players definitely takes them down a peg. They deserve props that they haven’t rolled over since losing those two, but sadly they’re nowhere near as good as they were with their whole squad. Their schedule is easy enough that it shouldn’t knock them out of the play-in. If LaMelo and Hayward are back by then, then it’s hard not seeing the Hornets get into the postseason.

Indiana Pacers (26-29)
Games Left: 17
Home Games Left: 11
Games Against Teams Over .500: Seven
Games Against East Teams: 11

It hasn’t been talked about enough how injuries have really shaken up Indiana’s season. TJ Warren’s foot injury was a substantial season-long setback and Caris Levert’s cancer, as miraculous of a story as that was, was another prolonged absence. Overall, Indiana’s injuries have led to a rather underachieving season compared to past results. Luckily their schedule for the rest of the season shouldn’t be too tough, so making the play-in seems realistic.

Outside Looking In

*One of these teams will get the play-in as the 10th seed.

Toronto Raptors (23-34)
Games Left: 15
Home Games Left: Eight
Games Against Teams Over .500: Nine
Games Against East Teams: Seven

That’s right, the same Raptors, who only weeks ago were in serious talks to trade Kyle Lowry to the highest bidder, have suddenly found themselves in the fight for the final spot for the play-in. It’s not that they’ve suddenly turned it all around. It’s that the competition is too weak for them to bow out completely. Their schedule may allow them to go all-in on the tank, but maybe one last hurrah with the franchise’s greatest player isn’t the worst way to go.

Chicago Bulls (23-33)
Games Left: 16
Home Games Left: Seven
Games Against Teams Over .500: Nine
Games Against East Teams: 16

Good news: Nikola Vucevic looks like he’s fitting in splendidly. Bad news: The team has been on a downward spiral since his (and others) acquisition. Chicago has only won four of their last 13 games since the trade deadline and their remaining schedule is not going to be a breeze. On paper, they should be a shoo-in for the 10th seed, but the roster holes right now appear to be too glaring for Chicago to take the next step. If they don’t at the very least make the play-in, that’s not going to be a good look after all the moves they made.

Washington Wizards (23-33)
Games Left: 16
Home Games Left: Eight
Games Against Teams Over .500: Five
Games Against East Teams: 10

Remember when Washington was one of the worst teams in the league record-wise? And how they managed to only slightly improve themselves over the course of the season? Well, apparently that was enough to get them into the conversation for the play-in because, lo and behold, they’re now tied with Chicago for that 10th seed. It gets better too. They only face two tough challenges from here on out – Lakers and Bucks – but after that, it’s honestly easy enough that they might be the favorite to get that last play-in spot.

Cleveland Cavaliers (20-36)
Games Left: 16
Home Games Left: Nine
Games Against Teams over .500: Six
Games Against East Teams: 12

This sounds the most ludicrous seeing how the Cavs are currently the East’s 13th seed, but being three games behind Chicago while facing only six teams over .500 gives them a fighting chance. If the Cavaliers are actually able to get the play-in, that’s a big stepping stone for their future. It’s an accomplishment to build off of in an era with no LeBron James to speak of, which they haven’t been able to do since Friends was on the air.

As you can see, the play-in has, in a way, brought a new dimension to the NBA season. In any previous season (excluding the last one) no one would bat an eye at the 10 through 13 seeds. Their season at this point would be all but done and no one would care, but because of the possibility of going to a play-in tournament, teams suddenly have the chance to make something of what usually would have been a lost season.

Some teams may get annoyed by it because their time is coming to a close and there’s no need to delay the inevitable. For others, the play-in signifies that it could just be the beginning.
