Some movement from Week 8!

  • The Cavaliers leap based on wins over Sacramento, the Lakers and the Suns on the road – decisively.
  • The Celtics big win on Christmas Day do not sufficiently make up for the losses to the Clippers and Warriors.  Schedule still 30th.
  • I am not sure where 2-29 is on the history of bad starts but it has to be down there.  With their 30th and 27th rankings in offense and defense respectively, the Nets are continuing to flounder in all sorts of ways.
  • The Blazers being 20-13 with this and this happening to them is a credit to Nate McMillan
