NBA Season 2010: Denver Stiffs Predictions

The NBA season kicked off tonight with the Miami Heat taking on the Boston Celtics in the opening night marquee game. For Denver fans, there's still one more day to go until the Nuggets open their season at home against the Utah Jazz.

The team over at SB Nation Nuggets site Denver Stiffs put together their staff predictions for the 2010-11 season and they contain a few surprises, as prognostications usually do.

- The guys guessed that the Nuggets would finish fifth (this one is only with Carmelo), third and second in the conference between them, with Jeffrey Morton taking Denver to the Western Conference Finals.

- Nate Timmons thinks no member of the Miami Heat will finish with more than 25 points per game:

Not a single Miami Heat player will average more than 25 points per game this season. LeBron James averaged just over 29 points per game with Cleveland, Dwayne Wade just over 26 ppg for Miami last year, and Chris Bosh averaged 24 ppg with Toronto.

- Most surprising is the respect of the Dallas Mavericks. A team many sports writers predict will finish between the four and six spots in the Western conference, was predicted to finish first, second and third by the three writers.

Lots of great stuff to hold you over until the Nuggets step on the court tomorrow night, head on over and check it out.
