Team Outlook and Scouting Report

PLAYOFF FORECAST

If they had combined Mike Conley and Ja Morant they were projected for nearly 37 wins. Without both before the draft they were projected for 30 wins. Morant delivered a big improvement. Our simulations give them a very slim chance of making the playoffs.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP

The sum of all of their regular season money line implied probabilities (adjusted for the juice) projects to 33.5 wins. Their 33 actual wins was below expectation. They exceeded expectations at home. They went 12-29 on the road and were expected to win 13.6. Their 51.2% home win percentage was better than expected (48.6%).
