We have a thread like this every year. It's an opportunity for us to see if we're making any significant improvement over the course of the season. Also, it's a place to discuss what other teams are doing without having to go to the NBA Discussion. So, I'll start. We're playing 50% ball right now. That's not good, but it's not horrible either, considering we have 10 new players and some of them were out, including LeBron for two games. Our long-range shooting is better now (we're #4 in the league in 3pt%, and we'd be #1 if it wasn't for Russ taking quite a few), but the defense has looked pretty bad. We can't be #21 defense in the league and expect success. Here are the latest power rankings on nba.com: https://www.nba.com/news/power-rankings-2021-22-week-2 Other than that, who came hot out of the gate? East: Knicks, Bulls, Heat, Wizards: 4-1. West: Jazz 4-0, Warriors 4-1. We are currently #9 in the West (3-3). Next game: Houston Rockets.
