NBA Teams in German

The team name in the hint box will be in German, can you name them in English? Some will be accurate some will not be just due to the fact that there is no literal translation into German so it could be the object in German.

I am from Germany, and some of these are pretty bullshit. What translation programm did you use? Here some proposals:

Celtics - Kelten

Lakers - Seen

Knicks - Knickerbocker

Blazers - Wegbereiter

Timberwolves - Wölfe (Holzwölfe is not a word)

Mavericks - Einzelgänger

Goldklumpen und Schrittmacher; love it.

As it happens, I made an NFL equivalent of this quiz recently:

I thought Raketen would be Rakuten, and by extension the Warriors :\

Agreed with XYU on some of your translations. The translation of Lakers could be improved, though. Seen means lakes. Lakers are the people of the lakes. I would suggest Seemenschen or Leute der Seen. Unfortunately, Seeleute does not work.
