The Clippers played 72 games last season and won 49 [.681]--the equivalent of 56 wins in a normal 82-game season. The club record is 57 [.695], set in 2013-14.

51 wins [.708] would break the club record.

I don’t think we will play the “full season”. Will be a lot of cancellations or postponements. Make the playoffs for sure though.

I only care about 4 wins. Whatever it takes to lead us to those 4 wins is fine with me.

One thing I would like to see this team be able to accomplish this season is becoming a little more like those Cavs teams from the late 80s and early 90s. The 91-92 squad that lost to Jordan in the EC Finals had 6-7 players in double figures regularly. In fact, their top 7 only had one player average under double figures (9.2). Spread the scoring load across the team.

When Morris comes back, we could potentially get 8-9 guys in double figures nightly. We don't want Kawhi and PG accounting for 47% of our shots each night. There are times and places for them to take over scoring, but this team should be able to spread the scoring load across the roster. The best load management is sitting on the bench resting in the 4th each night knowing your teammates have it handled.

If they can spread that scoring load, then they should be able to have the best regular season winning % in franchise history.

Yah, that's why I wrote that the NBA "plans a 72-game season" and also referenced the winning percentages in case they don't. Probably should have written

▢ Over .680

▢ .600-.679

▢ .500-.600

▢ Under .500

I am guessing right around 50 (poll ended before I could vote.)

Return to Los Angeles Clippers
