The five most improved NBA teams for the 2013-14 season are all expected to win at least 10 more games than they did last season.
This list includes two teams who are now capable of winning at least half of their games after finishing among the five worst records in the league a year ago. It also includes a No. 8 seed who will now have an opportunity to compete for a conference championship after adding a second All-Star to its exciting young core.
This list does not include teams like the Chicago Bulls because, while they will be better with the return of Derrick Rose, they already finished fifth in the Eastern Conference without him.
It also doesn't include the Washington Wizards based on their improvements being directly related to the return of a healthy John Wall and Bradley Beal. Each team is listed in order of how many games it is projected to win next season.
