Win-Loss Projections for Every NBA Team Heading into 2013-14 Opening Week

The weekend before the 2012-13 NBA season kicked off, James Harden was shockingly traded to the Houston Rockets in a move that shook up the Western Conference. 

This year, it's the Eastern Conference that could undergo a significant shift after Marcin Gortat was traded from the Phoenix Suns to the Washington Wizards. ESPN's Marc Stein first reported the news, and it's a doozy, as the Wiz Kids replace an injured big man with a quality 5 who could push them firmly into playoff contention. 

But how high can they rise? Will they make the playoffs now? Are they postseason locks?

Have they—GASP—cracked the top five teams in the East, a group that previously seemed set in stone? 

That's certainly a compelling storyline, but it's by no means the only one addressed here as we run through record projections for all 30 teams in the NBA. 

I'll be starting with the Eastern Conference, going over each team from No. 15 through No. 1, then proceeding in similar fashion with the Western Conference.

So, you can see who I'm predicting to make the playoffs. Who do you have?
