Vegas Over/Under: 56.5

Fromal’s Record Projection: 52-30 The Bet: Beneath with confidence
We are operating under the same premise that led Vegas to set the over/under at 56.5 wins: Kyrie Irving is now a member of the Boston Celtics, since the onus is on the Cleveland Cavaliers to veto a transaction that’s near processing.
Until this situation is solved, we’ll be factoring in a changing of the guard from Isaiah Thomas into Irving, in addition to the departures of both Jae Crowder and Ante Zizic.
Boston went through tumult that was a lot of this offseason. Few members of the last year’s team stay, which is always problematic in a a league that has numerous benefits gleaned from preexisting chemistry.
Talented as Gordon Hayward, Irving, Jayson Tatum and the other newcomers may be, they will undergo an inevitable adjustment period that prevents them from running away with the Eastern Conference’s No. 1 seed.
Plus, we can’t overlook what they lost.
Avery Bradley was a crucial piece on both ends of the floor. The best-case situation for Boston is that replacing him Marcus Morris is a wash. But there’s no way to replicate what Crowder brought to the proverbial tablethe C’s were 11.5 points per 100 possessions better with him on the ground.
This group will still be one of the very best in the East, competing throughout the year for billing. From the time the playoffs roll around, the Celtics could be the favorites to advance to the NBA Finals and finish LeBron James’ reign of terror.
Just do not be surprised when they go through some hard times .
