NBA Pre-season win predictions: Western Conference, Pacific Division

1 of 6

NBA Western Conference – Pacific Division

Real basketball starts very soon, and it’s time for Yours Truly to take his stand. I’m going to offer slideshows of all six NBA Divisions, starting in the West and ending in the East with a look at the Atlantic Division, where our Toronto Raptors hang out.

Let’s begin with the glamour Division, the Pacific. As always, I’ll list the teams from worst to best, and synopsize why I’ve come to my conclusions. I’ve used my handy spreadsheet tool to ensure there are 1, 230 winners and the same number of losers. I’ve been witness to other sites where the wins and losses don’t balance, and neither adds up to 1, 230 (82 games times 30 teams, divided by 2). That won’t happen here.
