Most of these teams are question marks, so it’s very hard to guess.

The Nuggets just picked up a great defender, so it’s reasonable to expect their defense to improve. We haven’t seen much positive from the Boogie-Brow experiment yet, so it’s reasonable to be cautious about their chances. And the Grizzlies were 7th last season, got (slightly) worse, and have a tougher field to contend with, so it’s reasonable to place them at 9th.

I agree that Portland should be projected higher, and I also think the Pelicans should be above the Clippers.
