Team Outlook and Scouting Report

PLAYOFF FORECAST

If they had combined Mike Conley and Ja Morant they were projected for nearly 37 wins. Without both before the draft they were projected for 30 wins. Morant delivered a big improvement. We do not project them to be a playoff team in '19-20.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP

The regular season went as expected. They won 33 games vs an expected win total of 33.5. They exceeded expectations at home. They went 12-29 on the road and were expected to win 13.6. They won 21 at home and were expected to win 19.9.
