The NBA’s Best Turnaround Teams 2014
Posted by Nancy on April 28, 2014
The 2013-2014 NBA season is down to its’ last month with play-offs currently in progress. It has been an interesting season in many respects with some teams stepping up and doing better than expected and others falling short of the mark. Many teams found themselves winning a lot more games this year than they had the year before and will start off next year with increased confidence and improved skills. High on that list are the guys who wear the basketball jerseys with the Suns logo and who play under new coach Jeff Hornacek. They went from winning only 25 games in the 2012-2013 season to finishing this year with a 48 win record. Pretty impressive. The Charlotte Bobcats ended up almost as well with 22 more wins this season than the previous one followed by Trailblazers improved by 21 games, the Wizards by 15 games and the Raptors by 14 games. These teams may all have a long way to go to get to the playoffs but they have seen substantial improvement and that is cause for optimism. Other teams, such as the Utah Jazz are no doubt hoping for such an upward change in their record for next season after finishing with a dismal 25-57 this year.
