Who do you think were the top 5 defensive teams in the NBA last season?
What do you think are the best stats to measure team defense?
Celtics, Blazers, Lakers, Spurs, Rockets
I would say
points per game
fouls per game
O wait the Bobcats have got to be top 3 if not #1
To me the Bobcats are the clear #1.
Honorable Mention: Bulls, Lakers
I'd say rebounding differential, FG% allowed and points allowed per possesion are the best stats to measure team defense.
Possessions Per Game
1. Golden State Warriors
2. New York Knicks
JAY KAY !
4. Heat [Wade, Chalmers, James]
That dude seriously said the Phoenix Suns were the 5th best defensive team. smhsmhsmh I guess the Warriors are #1 then
Does anybody remember that the Charlotte Bobcats were the best defensive team in the league last season? Or is it just me?
The Bobcats were a GREAT defensive team. That's the main reason I thought they'd be a great matchup vs Orlando in the first round, but I was wrong... Their offense was terrible.
the suns actually arent a bad defensive team with alvin gentry, it wasnt luck that got them to push the limits to the Lakers
