ESPN's Chris Forsberg is running his annual Summer Forecast series where he asks bloggers around the web several questions about the Celtics. His most recent topic was about how many wins the team will get this year. Here's our own Bill Sy's answer.
Last season's late charge wasn't a fluke, and the Celtics will near 50 wins in 2016. Defensively, they're better with the additions of Johnson and rookies Terry Rozier and Jordan Mickey. Offensively, they're more versatile with Lee, a presumably healthy Jared Sullinger, and young gun R.J. Hunter. Most importantly, they'll finally have some consistency. Stevens has shown the ability to get his team to play hard and compete despite seismic roster turnover, but season No. 3 of the rebuild is his chance to finally define Celtics basketball for years to come, and that means winning.
