With the injury to Porzingis this team is not going to have tremendous success next year. However it will allow much of the young talent to improve, and provide a good pick in next years draft. It also provides increased cap flexibility for next year.
Vegas has the Cavaliers at -700, which again is a 87.50% favorite. The Pacers are at +500 which equates to a 16.67% underdog. This is really hard to get behind.
Whichever team claims the three seed, they would be a sizable favorite in a round two match up with Boston. Cleveland would be a 74% favorite to take the Celtics out in a seven game series. Philadelphia would be a 69% favorite to take the Celtics out in the seven game series.
