Will Carmelo Anthony stay a Knick? Will Derrick Rose be back before the playoffs? Read on to find out.

Halfway through the 2013-14 NBA season, a number of outcomes appear all but preordained.

Barring injury, the Indiana Pacers will run away with the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Barring an eruption from Mount LeBron, Kevin Durant will earn his first-ever regular-season Most Valuable Player award.

Other contests—the No. 3 seed in the East, the Rookie of the Year race, the final playoff spot in the West—remain far more up in the air. We're also bound to see at least one league-shaking surprise between now and the Feb. 20 trade deadline.

With that in mind, enjoy these eight bold predictions for the second half of the 2013-14 NBA season.

 

Notes: Remember, these are bold predictions. They're not the most likely outcome to occur (see: KD as MVP), but they're within the realm of possibility. All statistics and records are current through Jan. 28.
