Chicago 50-16 (1st Central Division, 1st Seed Eastern Conference)
For all the success the Bulls had during the regular season, you’d have to call their season a disappointment after their first round exit. Now losing Derrick Rose for part of next season won’t help matters as well. Should be an interesting up coming season for them.
Indiana 42-24 (2nd Central Division, 3rd Seed Eastern Conference)
For a season with some uncertainty, the Pacers went as far as I thought they could have. Sure beating the Miami Heat would have been awesome, and there’s reason to believe they could have beat that team. But getting out of the first round in years and having high expectations for next season bodes well for this team.
Milwaukee 31-35 (3rd Central Division, 9th Eastern Conference)
The Bucks had a shot at the eighth seed towards the end of the season, but couldn’t get the job done. They did pick up a couple of good wins along the way though beating Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers in a span of three games. Even had a season high six game winning streak going. But they seemed to come on too late and missed the playoffs.
Detroit 25-41 (4th Central Division, 10th Eastern Conference)
Not quite the season from the year past, but still not a good season for the Pistons this year. They’re still a few years away from getting back into playoff contention as they do have some hefty contracts sitting around. This year they did have a few winning streaks, but there were way too many losses on their record. Ben Gordon might be the biggest free agent bust they’ve picked up as it seems he hasn’t done anything since going there.
Cleveland 21-45 (5th Central Division, 13th Eastern Conference)
Well the Cavs did have the rookie of the year on their team in Kyrie
