Its pretty much the definition of why people think the Avs are going to decline. Their GF% was extremely high due to high shooting percentages and high save percentages. Neither of which are likely repeatable, and if they don't start shooting more relative to their opposition they are going to have a worse GF% and worse record.

It's 82 games, and exactly the same sample size as all of the other stat sample sizes.
