  • Upcoming: at Nets, at Cavaliers, at Pistons, vs. Raptors

Largest concern: Frontcourt depth

The Warriors are buzzing alongside and doing an incredible job of caring for the comfortable schedule in entrance of them, however when Draymond Inexperienced went down on Wednesday with a proper thigh contusion issues may have gotten very actual, actual fast. Whereas the Warriors backcourt depth has been a nice shock thus far this season even with out Klay Thompson, are we actually certain the frontcourt has the horses to resist any adversity?

Yeah, the Warriors gained the sport and Inexperienced prevented lacking critical time, however you’ll be able to’t assist however fear about what would occur if their depth had been to take that type of hit.

2. Brooklyn Nets

  • Earlier rank: 4
  • General W-L: 10-4
  • Final week: 3-1
  • Upcoming: vs. Warriors, vs. Cavaliers, vs. Magic

Largest concern: Which model of James Harden will the Nets get?

It has been an up-and-down begin to the season for Harden, who’s averaging his fewest factors per recreation (19.5) since 2011-12 on the lowest effectivity of his profession (42.6% FG) other than his rookie yr. 

Nonetheless, there have been some brilliant spots like his 39-point, 12-assist double-double in a win over the Pelicans this previous week the place he seemed like his typical, prolific scoring self. He additionally has three triple-doubles on the season, all of which have resulted in wins for the Nets.

With Kyrie Irving’s absence, it is more and more very important for Brooklyn’s championship aspirations that Harden finds a groove and performs to his All-Star capabilities constantly.

3. Phoenix Suns

  • Earlier rank: 8
  • General W-L: 9-3
  • Final week: 4-0
  • Upcoming: at Timberwolves, vs. Mavericks, vs. Mavericks, vs. Nuggets

Largest concern: Preserving momentum rolling at full energy

With constant minutes, it seems as if Frank Kaminsky is usually a big-time contributor to the Suns’ frontline. He is gotten the chance with Deandre Ayton sidelined. Frank the Tank will not have many 31-point nights like he did final week towards the Blazers, however he does give the Suns a stable scoring choice on their second unit. When Ayton comes again to the lineup, how will the Suns proceed to get probably the most out of Frank?

4. Chicago Bulls

  • Earlier rank: 6
  • General W-L: 9-4
  • Final week: 3-1
  • Upcoming: at Lakers, at Path Blazers, at Nuggets, vs. Knicks

Largest concern: The frontcourt dropoff after Nikola Vucevic

Earlier than he entered the league’s well being and security protocols, Vucevic wasn’t enjoying as much as his typical requirements. The 2-time All-Star is averaging simply 13.6 factors per recreation and capturing beneath 40 p.c from the sphere by means of 11 video games. However Vucevic continues to be a man opposing defenses should respect, in contrast to backup large males Tony Bradley and Alize Johnson. His absence will put much more weight on the shoulders of DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine.

5. Denver Nuggets

  • Earlier rank: 10
  • General W-L: 9-4
  • Final week: 4-0
  • Upcoming: at Mavericks, vs. 76ers, vs. Bulls, at Suns

Largest concern: Creating extra offense round Nikola Jokic

The Nuggets are scoring at a charge of 104.1 points per 100 possessions, which ranks them twenty fourth within the league. They’re lacking a giant a part of their offense in Jamal Murray, who continues to be a great distance away from coming back. Denver ranks within the 96th percentile on cuts, in response to NBA Stats. The one drawback with that’s the Nuggets solely common 6.0 possessions of that per recreation. For a staff with the perfect passer within the league to not make the most of that by slicing far more is sort of prison. It feels just like the Nuggets are leaving factors on the desk by not slicing extra, particularly with Murray out.

6. Miami Warmth

  • Earlier rank: 1
  • General W-L: 8-5
  • Final week: 1-3
  • Upcoming: at Thunder, vs. Pelicans, vs. Wizards, at Wizards

Largest concern: 3-point capturing

The Warmth have been a well-oiled machine early on within the season and when you may make the case that lack of depth is their largest concern, I am going with 3-point capturing.

At the present time, it’s important to knock down 3s with a view to sustain with probably the most high-powered offenses within the league. By means of their first 13 video games, the Warmth rank twentieth in 3-pointers made per recreation (11.2) and sixteenth in 3-point share (34.0%). Recognized sharpshooter Duncan Robinson hasn’t been his typical self, capturing 33.3 p.c on 9.2 makes an attempt per recreation. Kyle Lowry is capturing 32.9 p.c from 3, his lowest mark since 2009-10.

With their two finest gamers – Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo – reluctant to shoot the 3-ball, guys like Robinson and Lowry want to begin changing a better clip to create house for the staff’s two go-to scoring choices.

7. Utah Jazz

  • Earlier rank: 2
  • General W-L: 8-5
  • Final week: 1-2
  • Upcoming: vs. 76ers, vs. Raptors, at Kings

Largest concern: Producing offense when Donovan Mitchell’s on the bench

Utah’s offense falls off a cliff when Donovan Mitchell is not within the recreation. Going into final Friday’s motion, the Jazz are scoring at a charge of 117.3 factors per 100 possessions with Mitchell on the ground. When he sits, that quantity drops to 103.2. Utah wants extra offense exterior of Mitchell or it’ll face the identical destiny it has the previous few years within the playoffs.

8. Washington Wizards

  • Earlier rank: 16
  • General W-L: 9-3
  • Final week: 2-0
  • Upcoming: vs. Pelicans, at Hornets, at Warmth, vs. Warmth

Largest concern: Is that this begin sustainable?

Proudly owning the perfect document within the Jap Convention, Washington is prospering with a gaggle of gamers that had been seen as outcasts from their former groups. Montrezl Harrell has been a monster, averaging 18.3 factors and 9.0 rebounds per recreation. Spencer Dinwiddie has been a jolt of offense, posting 16.1 factors and 5.5 assists per recreation. Kyle Kuzma has stepped up massively in a brand new function, posting 15.0 factors and 9.2 rebounds per recreation, just lately pulling down a game-winner over the Cavaliers.

Is that this Wizards staff for actual? Or will they fizzle out because the season goes on?

– Kyle Irving

9. Milwaukee Bucks

  • Earlier rank: 7
  • General W-L: 6-8
  • Final week: 2-2
  • Upcoming: vs. Lakers, vs. Thunder, vs. Magic

Largest concern: Getting Jrue Vacation’s shot again on monitor

In case you take a look at Vacation’s capturing numbers in a couple of November video games, you could begin feeling ache in your eyes: 3 of 8, 6 of 16, 4 of 14, 6 of 25. Yikes. It’s necessary to needless to say the Bucks have struggled with well being points to begin the season, and Milwaukee’s “Huge Three” of Vacation, Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo has solely logged 21 total minutes together. Nonetheless, it will be good to see Vacation transfer nearer towards being the man who shot 50.3 p.c from the sphere and 39.2 p.c from 3-point vary final season.

10. Dallas Mavericks

  • Earlier rank: 11
  • General W-L: 8-4
  • Final week: 2-1

With Porzingis on the ground thus far this season, the Mavs are being outscored by 11.5 points per 100 possessions. When he is off the ground, they have been enjoying groups fairly even with a web ranking of two.7. Porzingis might not ever get again to the All-Star he was early in his profession, however he may be much better than this.

11. Los Angeles Lakers

  • Earlier rank: 12
  • General W-L: 8-6
  • Final week: 3-1
  • Upcoming: vs. Bulls, at Bucks, at Celtics, at Pistons

Largest concern: Does anybody worth the ball?

The Lakers’ turnover issues begin with Russell Westbrook. He leads the league in turnovers per recreation, however he isn’t the one one in Los Angeles who deserves some blame for the early offensive struggles. Different main ball handlers reminiscent of Rajon Rondo, Malik Monk and even LeBron James have been far too careless. These Lakers merely aren’t adequate proper now to throw away so many possessions.

12. New York Knicks

  • Earlier rank: 9
  • General W-L: 7-6
  • Final week: 1-2
  • Upcoming: vs. Pacers, vs. Magic, vs. Rockets, at Bulls

Largest concern: Shedding their id 

Final season, the Knicks had been beneath common offensively and elite defensively. Up to now this season, they’ve been elite offensively and properly beneath common defensively. Their beginning lineup particularly has been a disaster on that finish of the courtroom. The Knicks are unlikely to achieve the defensive heights they did final season — they made the strikes they did within the offseason to handle their offense — however it’s onerous to see them making noise within the Jap Convention once more if the groups are going to proceed scoring on them this simply.

— Scott Rafferty

13. Philadelphia 76ers

  • Earlier rank: 5
  • General W-L: 8-6
  • Final week: 0-4
  • Upcoming: at Jazz, at Nuggets, at Path Blazers

Largest concern: What if the offense isn’t for actual?

One of many largest surprises this season has been Philadelphia’s success regardless of Ben Simmons not enjoying and having to cope with prolonged absences from Tobias Harris and Joel Embiid. The most important shock? The 76ers entered the weekend with the most efficient offense within the league after ranking 13th in offensive efficiency final season. Perhaps this staff will likely be dynamite offensively all season lengthy, however what in the event that they’re not? Are we nonetheless a top-five staff within the Jap Convention?

— Scott Rafferty

14. LA Clippers

  • Earlier rank: 19
  • General W-L: 8-5
  • Final week: 3-1
  • Upcoming: vs. Spurs, at Grizzlies, at Pelicans, vs. Mavericks

Largest concern: Determining how Serge Ibaka matches into the equation

It’s simple to neglect how large of a deal it was when the Clippers landed Ibaka in free company in 2020. He joined LA following a season that noticed him common a career-best 15.4 factors per recreation on .512/.385/.718. Final season, he was restricted to 41 video games attributable to a again damage that required surgery. This season, he’s solely appeared in two video games. It’s going to take Ibaka time to search out his groove once more, however each Ivica Zubac and Isaiah Hartenstein have been an necessary a part of the staff’s early success. It’s going to be attention-grabbing to see how they work him again into the rotation.

15. Boston Celtics

  • Earlier rank: 18
  • General W-L: 6-7
  • Final week: 2-1
  • Upcoming: at Cavaliers, at Hawks, vs. Lakers, vs. Thunder

Largest concern: Ending video games

Of the Celtics’ seven losses, two have are available in extra time, two have been blown double-digit leads and one ended on the destiny of a Luka Doncic game-winning buzzer-beater.

Boston let a 19-point lead slip away towards the Bulls a couple of weeks again and clearly did not study its lesson. This previous weekend, they blew one other 19-point lead, this time to the Cavaliers, falling in Cleveland by two factors.

There aren’t many groups which can be extra unpredictable on a night-to-night foundation than the Celtics they usually’ll have to begin closing video games in the event that they need to attain their potential as one of many prime groups within the East.

– Kyle Irving

16. Cleveland Cavaliers

  • Earlier rank: 20
  • General W-L: 9-5
  • Final week: 2-1
  • Upcoming: vs. Celtics, at Nets, vs. Warriors

Largest concern: Changing Collin Sexton’s offensive manufacturing

The Cavaliers are rolling early on within the season, however they did obtain some devastating information this previous week.

Former No. 8 general choose Collin Sexton was recognized with a torn meniscus, sidelining the guard indefinitely. The 22-year-old’s scoring common was all the way down to 16.0 factors per recreation attributable to Cleveland merely having extra mouths to feed, however that was nonetheless good for second-most on the staff.

Sexton is a vital a part of Cleveland’s offensive gameplan and it’ll want gamers like Evan Mobley, Ricky Rubio and even Cedi Osman to step up and exchange that scoring output whereas Kevin Love and Lauri Markkanen stay sidelined as a result of league’s well being and security protocols.

– Kyle Irving

17. Toronto Raptors

  • Earlier rank: 13
  • General W-L: 7-7
  • Final week: 1-2
  • Upcoming: at Path Blazers, at Jazz, at Kings, at Warriors

Largest concern: Re-incorporating Pascal Siakam

Once you go six months with out enjoying aggressive basketball it’s onerous to get again into rhythm. Now, add being a staff’s finest participant on the highest stage of basketball and also you’ll see why it’s going to take time for Siakam to get again to his outdated methods.

For the Raptors, it’s a matter of when and never if Siakam will get again to kind, however what is going to that in-between interval carry? After a tricky outing for Siakam in Boston, Fred VanVleet said, “He is discovering himself, discovering his legs… He’ll be OK. It is gonna take a while, clearly. We’d all prefer it to be tonight or yesterday, however that is not how these items work.”

The Raptors can’t attain their ceiling with out Siakam, however the lows that the method may be irritating at occasions. The faster they’ll get by means of the method, the higher.

18. Charlotte Hornets

  • Earlier rank: 22
  • General W-L: 8-7
  • Final week: 3-1
  • Upcoming: vs. Wizards, vs. Pacers, at Hawks

Largest concern: The protection

After a well-documented sizzling begin to the season, Charlotte got here again all the way down to earth fairly shortly. Throughout a five-game dropping streak, the Hornets allowed 116.4 factors per 100 possessions, a charge that will rank lifeless final amongst all 30 NBA groups.

Making issues worse is that while you look by means of a wider lens, Charlotte’s defensive ranking of 110.6 nonetheless ranks twenty seventh within the league forward of solely the Hawks (111.4), Pelicans (113.0) and, virtually surprisingly, the Grizzlies (113.4).

19. Portland Path Blazers

  • Earlier rank: 17
  • General W-L: 6-8
  • Final week: 1-3
  • Upcoming: vs. Raptors, vs. Bulls, vs. 76ers

Largest concern:  A franchise in disarray

The Path Blazers’ points prolong past the courtroom. Portland opened an investigation into president of basketball operations and normal supervisor Neil Olshey earlier this month following allegations of office misconduct. However the entrance workplace turmoil didn’t cease there. CEO and president of enterprise operations Chris McGowan just lately determined to step down, and although he mentioned the timing of his resolution had nothing to do with the investigation, it’s one other worrying signal for a franchise that desperately wants stability.

20. Memphis Grizzlies

  • Earlier rank: 15
  • General W-L: 6-7
  • Final week: 1-3
  • Upcoming: vs. Rockets, vs. Clippers, at Timberwolves

Largest concern: Jaren Jackson Jr.’s effectivity

Jackson has shot properly from 3-point vary to begin the season. It’s contained in the arc the place he’s struggled, having transformed a career-low 41.3 percent of his 2-point makes an attempt so far. That’s not an incredible quantity for a 6-foot-11 large man who sports activities a 7-foot-4 wingspan. Vital as his 3-point capturing is, the Grizzlies would profit from Jackson being a extra environment friendly scorer across the basket and floater vary.

— Scott Rafferty

21. Atlanta Hawks

  • Earlier rank: 14
  • General W-L: 5-9
  • Final week: 1-3
  • Upcoming: vs. Magic, vs. Celtics, vs. Hornets

Largest concern: Falling in too deep of a gap

Certain, gradual begins aren’t out of the atypical, however large-scale success continues to be comparatively new to this Hawks staff. SN’s Scott Rafferty gave the Hawks a 4 on our “panic meter,” citing their turnaround final season, however I’m afraid they gained’t be capable of get again on monitor.

There are a selection of contenders within the East which can be separating themselves and the Hawks need to be greater than a Play-In staff. In the event that they fall additional beneath .500, that may be the one approach they see the postseason.

– Gilbert McGregor

22. Indiana Pacers

  • Earlier rank: 24
  • General W-L: 6-8
  • Final week: 2-1
  • Upcoming: at Knicks, at Pistons, at Hornets, vs. Pelicans

Largest concern: Is that this core adequate?

The Pacers are off to an underwhelming begin to the season and it may be time to look within the mirror.

Whereas Indiana has loads of gifted gamers like All-Star ahead Domantas Sabonis, Myles Turner, Malcolm Brogdon and Caris LeVert, is that foursome sufficient to compete with the perfect groups within the league?

Accidents have performed a job within the Pacers struggles, particularly when you think about that arguably their finest scorer, TJ Warren, nonetheless hasn’t returned to the courtroom with a foot damage that induced him to overlook virtually all of final season.

However even when he’s added to that core, will that be sufficient to raise the Pacers to the highest tier within the East? Judging by the primary couple weeks of the season, it does not appear so.

  • Earlier rank: 21
  • General W-L: 5-8
  • Final week: 0-3
  • Upcoming: at Pistons, at Timberwolves, vs. Raptors, vs. Jazz

Largest concern: Closing video games

Of the 13 video games the Kings have performed this season, 10 have been determined within the clutch — the final 5 minutes of a five-point recreation. Their document in these video games? 3-7. Solely the Pelicans have misplaced as many video games which have gone all the way down to the wire because the Kings. The numbers level to their protection being OK within the clutch. It’s their offense that has fallen off a cliff, as they’re capturing solely 31.4 p.c from the sphere and turning the ball over at a sky-high charge. The way in which they misplaced to the Thunder on Friday was significantly tough.

— Scott Rafferty

24. San Antonio Spurs

  • Earlier rank: 25
  • General W-L: 4-9
  • Final week: 1-2
  • Upcoming: at Clippers, at Timberwolves

Largest concern: Is that this the backcourt of the long run?

This is not to query Dejounte Murray, who’s having a Most Improved Participant of the 12 months caliber season averaging 18.1 factors, 7.8 assists and seven.7 rebounds per recreation, all of that are career-highs.

This query is directed towards Derrick White, who the Spurs signed to a four-year, $73 million extension final December. White has struggled to begin the yr, averaging simply 10.8 factors per recreation whereas capturing 37.9 p.c from the sphere and 31.5 p.c from 3-point vary, each of that are career-worst marks. He is a powerful defender which helps his case, however is the 27-year-old the fitting backcourt mate for Murray to construct round for the long run?

25. Minnesota Timberwolves

  • Earlier rank: 23
  • General W-L: 4-8
  • Final week: 1-3
  • Upcoming: vs. Suns, vs. Kings, vs. Spurs, vs. Grizzlies

Largest concern: Avoiding lengthy dropping streaks

Karl-Anthony Cities mentioned it finest following the Timberwolves third-straight loss to the Clippers on Wednesday, Nov. 3, “We’re on a three-game slide proper now within the NBA. If I do know one factor about slides right here in Minnesota, it may go from three to 18 to 19, 20 actually fast.”

Cities might have been foreshadowing a bit, because the Timberwolves ended up dropping six-consecutive video games earlier than lastly getting again within the win column with a press release victory over the Lakers.

Minnesota has loads of thrilling younger items, however it’s having bother stringing collectively wins. Final yr, it had two separate dropping streaks of longer than seven video games, burying any probabilities of staying within the playoff hunt. If the Timberwolves need to at the very least compete for a Play-In Event spot, they will need to keep away from falling into lengthy stretches of dropping.

  • General W-L: 5-7

Okay, this is not actually a “concern,” per se. The Thunder are enjoying with home cash this season as their historic rebuild is underway in full drive. They’ve earned some high quality – and stunning – wins early on, however nobody is anticipating them to compete for a playoff spot.

Crucial factor this season is the event of their younger expertise, and would not it’s superior to see Gilgeous-Alexander take the leap to All-Stardom?

The 23-year-old has been improbable thus far, averaging 22.6 factors, 5.2 rebounds and 4.2 assists per recreation. Whereas his scoring, assists and capturing effectivity are down within the slightest from final yr, he nonetheless has loads of alternatives to lift these averages to All-Star caliber numbers. It could be onerous to obtain consideration for a spot if the Thunder are towards the underside of the West, however do not rely out a attainable All-Star bid for Gilgeous-Alexander if he can ramp up his manufacturing.

After a 98-78 loss to the Cavaliers, the Pistons dropped all the way down to 39.6 p.c capturing from the sphere, the worst mark by any staff since 1960. They’ve three starters (Saddiq Bey, Cade Cunningham and Killian Hayes) capturing beneath 40 p.c. They personal the worst offensive ranking within the league by a big margin.

Largest concern: Younger backcourt’s early struggles

This season is strictly concerning the improvement of Houston’s younger expertise, however it’s been a gradual begin for No. 2 general choose Jalen Inexperienced and his backcourt mate Kevin Porter Jr.

Inexperienced has had some critical brilliant spots, however averaging 13.8 factors per recreation whereas capturing 35.2 p.c from the sphere and 27.0 p.c from 3 is actually decrease than expectation.
