Chauncey Billups resurgence
The Indiana Pacers playoff bound
I've got the Pistons winning 50-55 and making the Conference Finals.
Kaman will end up with 17 and 11 per or something close to it. Maybe a little more depending of what happens with Brand.
Haywood will end up with 8 and 8.
Celts will top the East. Not sure if they'll top the Spurs or Mavs in terms of wins, though.
Clips wont make the playoffs.
Turkoglu will finish with 16ppg. Not sure if that's a breakout.
Granger will go close to 20per.
New Orleans will make the playoffs, providing they stay healthy.
Orlando will also make the playoffs.
Billups has been one of the better guards in the league for the past few seasons. This will continue.
Indiana will finish with about 38 or 39 wins and sneak in.
