I think Indiana has a legit shot at 70 wins. The East is historically bad thus far, with only 4 teams over .500. They're young/hungry enough to do it.
Sucks about D-Rose.
If you look at their schedule...they have had only two tough games (both against Chicago). They won 1 and lost the other. They also played Memphis at home...but Memphis has been wildly inconsistent.
I've only seen them play 5 times...but don't think their offense can consistently score against good defensive teams. They got a road-trip coming up soon where they face the top teams from West. That should give us a good indicator.
...btw, this is great for the Heat. Keeps them motivated during the early part of the season to not fall too far behind the Pacers - since the Pacers are already talking about nabbing the no.1 seed so they can have home court in game 7
