  1. 1. How Many Games Will The Grizz Win in 2018-19?



Recommended Posts

I think I unintentionally hijacked another thread so i'll just start a new one.

How many games do you guys expect the Grizz to win this season? I'm sticking to what I've been saying all along and say about 35 wins with 40 on the high side if we're really really lucky. Yes, we added some pieces but i'm just failing to see how those pieces will make us that much of a better team. A better team? sure, but I don't think it will make us 25 wins better. Conley coming back from injury is great (if he's ready by the start of the season) but we're pinning our hopes on an over 30 smallish PG who has been battling injuries the past few seasons. Whatever Parsons gives us is gravy.  We'll be very lucky to hit 40 wins imo. i hope that I am wrong and I would be pleasantly surprised if we go over but I'm saying 35-37 wins. 

Vegas has our over/under at 34.5 which is about where i have been saying all along, about 35 wins and ESPN Insider has us at 33.1 wins. My expectation is around 35 wins and we may hit 40 if we are lucky and everything falls in place. 

What's your take? Vote and explain.

I say 40-45 range if Mike and Marc are healthy.     I think this team will be similar to old overachieving GNG teams when it comes to their record.    We will be competitive based on defense and solid team play offensively.     We have enough solid legit  actual NBA players (Kyle, Temple, JaM, Shelvin, Marshon) to be able to play with most teams in the West.   As long as we are dedicated to be a defense-first team - i think we will be able to scrape out a decent record.

The West is insane. Even at the most optimistic, we'd be lucky to sneak into the playoffs.

My guess is it will take over 45 wins to get into the playoffs and Grizz will fall just short.

When with all of the players healthy and perfoing optimally, you still have the X Factor of J.B.'s coaching ability. I'm not sure anyone can say for sure if he is even a horrible coach, a decent coach or a future HOFer.

Im in the same range as you ODK  Although Tyreke isnt really a winning type player, he is very good on teams that have nothing. Conley has to not only stay healthy but exceed his production from last year. Cause this team was literally AWFUL last year when Tyreke didnt play. So bad that they couldnt win a game for a month.

A solid defense is nice, but what can you do if almost any decent team can put your offense on ice when they need to?

The Brooks would have to develop into some serious playmakers/scorers to be plus .500. Im doubting that will happen but anything is possible.

It all hinges on MC.  If he is healthy and plays well the team can make the playoffs at that 45 win range.  If he gets hurt or is ineffective we should be better than last year but not significantly so.

After re-thinking a little on this and in terms of pure wins vs losses we should be better overall....I am just concerned we might have more competitive games that have the same result. This team will have to come together and learn how to grind out wins.

44.

that o/u for us is a joke, as it always is..

conley going down would be the only thing to throw this prediction off. I say 44 or above.

the regular season (again, based on decent health) will bless us with wins. teams don't play like us very often.

they don't like bumping and grinding all that much. that's our regular season niche. 44 or above.

 

slim.

Relying on Conley to score 25 a nite is a non-starter. If that is the game plan going forward, this team will be lucky to win 25 games. But, With Marshon Brooks on board, and if Seldon, Dillon Brooks, Jared Jackson, and J. Carter can all bring some serious D, this team can win between 35-40 games.

Based on this I would take the over!

With Tunica now allowing sports betting I am just trying to let everyone earn a little bank this year.

I'll defer until the scedule is released. Any predictions without that data is throwing darts blindfolded at numbers on a wall.

I need a few more data points before I could properly guesstimate.  Number one being the condition of Mike and Marc.

There are a lot of known unknowns here...

40-45 if everybody is healthy, that includes Parsons, Gasol and Conley all the way. I still want a 4th bigman to make things easier and I would move Marshon over Harrison. Trading for Bobby Portis would be ideal, but I think we are done.

Now that Mississippi has a sportsbook I'm heading to the GoldStrike and getting $100 down on the OVER that was set at 34.

I’m thinking 40-42 assuming relatively healthy squad that doesn’t rely on one person, but a collective unit. I think we’ll hover around .500 ball
