The Denver Nuggets rose to the top of the strength list. In the past seven games, their opponents were all teams with a winning rate of at least 50%. The Denver Nuggets achieved a good performance of 6 wins and 1 loss. The only loss was to lose to the King, which was only one point away. Jokic averaged 27.4 points, 10.9 rebounds and 11.4 assists in the seven games. When he was present, the Denver Nuggets had a very high offensive efficiency, reaching 123.6 points in 100 rounds!
The offensive performance of the Celtics before the arrival of December was historic. They could get 121.5 points in 100 rounds, but since December 1, they have only got 110.9 points in 100 rounds, ranking 26th in the league in the same period. Three point hit rate and mid shot hit rate both declined. After losing to Nuggets, the Green Army’s record in the western away game was 4-3.
The Nets came to No. 3 in the strength list with 11 consecutive wins. During the winning streak, the Nets could get 123.4 points in 100 rounds of attack, far ahead of other teams in the same period. In the process, they destroyed the defense of Bucks and Cavaliers, and both teams ranked in the top five in the league.
Maxi of the 76ers returned to play as a substitute, but the team’s defense became worse. However, they still won 13 of the last 14 games, including 9 straight wins before Thanksgiving.
Curry continues to be absent, but the Warriors are getting better. They won four consecutive victories at home, and three of them came from the top 10 teams in the western region. Green played a huge role in defense. In the next three games, Warriors will face the top 10 teams in the league.
James released a clear message that he did not want to play for an uncompetitive team. Then he scored 47 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists on his 38th birthday. In the days without thick eyebrows, the Lakers can only rely more on offense to win. During the absence of Shumei, the Lakers ranked 10th in attack and 29th in defense, only slightly stronger than the Spurs.
