Report: Danny Ainge believes Clippers will win 65 games this season

During an interview with Sports Illustrated (SI), Celtics' President of Basketball Operations, Danny Ainge, said that he believes the Clippers will win 65 games this season.


Per Sports Illustrated:

"Listen, Doc did a great job for us and I'll always be grateful for what he's done," said Ainge. "But because we struggled in the first few years of Doc's tenure -- struggled mightily -- I think people sort of get it, and understand that it's not always the coach. Now Doc's going to a team that's going to win 65 games. They won [56] games last year with injuries; Chris Paul missed [12] games. They won 17 in a row, and [now] their team is better. It's upgraded significantly, in my opinion.
