NBA record projections for the 2017-18 season

After the most hectic summer the NBA has ever seen, the 2017-18 season is finally here.

And with that, the NBA staff at USA TODAY Sports takes a look ahead to the newest campaign with our annual semi-scientific record projections.

We have the Golden State Warriors leading the league in wins, again, after another stellar offseason. If they hit the 65-win plateau this year, that would be four consecutive seasons doing so (they became the first team in NBA history to do so three years in a row in 2016-17).
