15 in 60 (Eastern Conference 11.7.22 Part 1)

Our first bi-weekly look at the East features 12 of the 15 teams:

  • ATL: The early returns on Trae/Dejounte, and why Nate thinks this Hawks team has to play a lot better despite being 6-3
  • BOS: The weird starter/bench splits, Jayson Tatum’s scorching start, and how Malcolm Brogdon has changed the C’s style of play.
  • BRK: Ugh, Kyrie again. Plus, where the Nets have fallen off with Ben Simmons on the floor.
  • CHA: Jalen McDaniels’ interesting start to the season, and how the Hornets have managed to be above-average on defense so far. And the Miles Bridges situation takes its latest turn.
  • CHI and TOR: A recap of a fantastic Bulls/Raptors game on Sunday. Plus a look at the Raptors’ unique style of play, and concern around the Zach LaVine situation despite a solid start for Chicago
  • CLE: The Cavs show their quality with two business-like wins against bad teams.
  • DET: The offense has actually been solid with Cade on the floor, but that bench and defense…..
  • IND: Why the Pacers’ offense has been solid so far. Plus a reason to expect them to get better on defense–if they maintain their personnel.
  • NYK and PHI play a crazy Friday night game
  • ORL’s promising frontcourt shines over the weekend, while unexpected backcourt contributions helped them to a signature win over the Warriors
