I'm not familiar with BPI either. Checked out ESPN and here is their summary of how its calculated:

"BPI accounts for game-by-game efficiency, strength of schedule, pace, days of rest, game location and preseason expectations."

You could be onto something with our preseason expectations.

I think it's a mix of that and your net rating is still a negative, which would project some clutch luck/variance. BPI and 538 give lesser playoff chances and both use preseason as a factor. Teamrankings is a little better. BBR a little better than that.

So Paul George is the reason Carmelo Anthony struggled on defense all these years...

I guess the problem is that the Clippers schedule looks pretty weak. But I could see them playing poorly and the Kings stepping up more than expected. The Team Rankings has us 9th to the Clippers.
