Default Your expectations for season??

What are your expectations for the upcoming season?

My expectations*:
49-wins in regular season.. Seeds them somewhere in between 3 and 6
2nd round exit in playoffs, depends on whether we play Rockets or GSW. I don't think Lakers can beat the Rockets, but it would be interesting to see regardless.

*barring any major injuries to our main players

It's a struggle for me to separate my expectations for this team and what I hope to see.
49 wins and 2nd round exit seems realistic.
I am hoping they can somewhat simulate how Houston gave GSW some trouble in the playoffs. Great switching, play physical defense, make Curry work on defense etc etc. Harden shot 24% from the 3pt area that series and they were 1 good 2nd half away from almost.....
I expect Hart to thrive next to Lebron but my concern is Ingram's adjustments as he likes to handle the ball too.
I have a bad feeling OKC and Denver will be the toughest competition.
