NBA Predictions-Playoff Edition- Awards

Well first of all How did we do using dingdoNg fro regular season projection?

Not as good as we hoped. Our predictions were off by 6.94 games per team whereas the Vegas bookies were 6.8. I already changed certain parts of the model,giving more weight to defense and overall team factors while predicting wins.  C-.

 

Playoff Predictions(1st Round)

Ind-Atl 4-2

Chi-Was 2-4

Mia-Cha 4-0

Tor-Bkn 4-3

SAS-Dal 4-0

Hou-Por 4-2

OKC-Mem 4-1

LAC-GSW 4-1

 

Of these only Chi/Was game is extremely out of consensus while Toronto going through is would also be a surprise.

Looking ahead East should be easily won by Heat while in West San Antonio and Clippers should battle it out. But we’ll predict as we go.
