REGULAR SEASON RECAP
The regular season went much worse than expected. They won 22 games vs an expected win total of 25. Home court was not an advantage, at least not in terms of meeting expectations. They were OK on the road. They won 31.7% on the road which was much better than expected (24.7%). They won 9 at home and were expected to win 14.8. Expect a similar record next season. In our latest simulations they are averaging 22 wins and are projected to finish third to last in the East. There is a sizable gap between them and the #12 ranked Hawks who are projected for 29 wins.
