I wanted to get everyones opinion on this, so far this season the Hornets seem to be playing lights out defense. What do you think of their defensive play, and would you rank them amongst the best?

Opponent points allowed- 2nd
Opponent field goal %- 8th
Opponent three point %- 3rd
Opponent turnovers- 18th
Opponent offensive boards- 2nd
Opponent defensive boards- 13th
Opponent total boards- 8th
Opponent assists per- 10th
Steals per game- 11th
Blocks per game- 22nd
A/TO- 12th

They are a top 6-7 defense, no matter how you cut it.

yep, they are a top 8 defense as well. The biggest change in San Antonio is they are a top 3 offense now as well. That has not been their forte (noth they they were bad, they just always rode that #6-12 offense with great D before)
