Knicks prospectus: 48.3 wins

The experts over at Basketball Prospectus predicted that the Knicks would finish with an average of 48.3 wins, good for third in the Eastern Conference.

Writes Bradford Doolittle in an Insider piece:

If this seems odd, consider that the Knicks finished five games worse last season than their point differential suggested they should have. While that kind of disparity usually evens itself out, New York's projection for 2012-13 would need to be at least five games better for the roster to register any kind of improvement from the offseason.
