Predicted wins thru 10 games

Here's a quick snapshot of the league thru Jan 16 (i.e. Clippers first 10 games).

Using the pythagorean wins method (which, if you don't what that is, check out this link W Pyth), you'll notice that using this method, the Clippers were predicted to win 6 games, but actually won 7. The prediction formula seems to "work" when comparing the other NBA teams versus their actual wins to date.

Based off these early results, the Clippers should expect to win 41 games this shortened season which translates to 51 wins in a regular season, not too shabby. However, they would only be a 6th seed behind the Lakers. I'm pleased to say that the Clippers are now the 27th best rebounding team in the NBA, yes!

Interestingly, the TWolves would sneak into the 8th spot - wow, aren't we glad we traded that pick! Ricky Rubio is ballin.

Feel free to add any of your own observations/conclusions - I'll try to update this periodically as we go thru the season.
