lol, yes, that's the whole point. If the Nets played faster, both them and their opponents would get more possessions, and thus score more points. That's why we look at pace and points per 100 possessions, not just points per game.

Your argument is like saying pre-shotclock teams were way better at defense than teams now because they gave up less points. It's true, they gave up less points, but that's because they spent the whole game dribbling around and nobody ever got a chance to score, not because they're good at defense. Same thing with the Nets - they play such a slow game that both teams score less points.

The Sixers' numbers on the ESPN standings page are wrong. They have been all season. I reported it as a bug, but it's still there. As of today's game we're giving up 93.4ppg.

The correct numbers (updated overnight, so not including today's games) are here:

The Nets have the lowest ppg in the conference.

It NOT an excuse dude. But only a fool believes that opponent's PPG makes you the best defensive team in the NBA. Look at your thread. Its childish.

There is so much more that goes into defense. Such as rebounding and forced turnovers and opponents FG%. By the way, the Nets are the 5th worst team in opponent's FG%.

Ppl gave you statistics about "pace" because it factors into the amount of possessions and the speed of the game. A slower pace team results in less possessions and less opportunities to score therefore the PPG stat is naturally going to be lower. Basically, opponents dont need to score as much points in order to beat you!

Learn some basketball before you make statements, "Nets have best defense in the NBA because opponents score the least". PS- that statement actually belongs to the Hawks :smh:

As a Nets fan myself you are a disgrace.

They are much better then people want to admit and if they keep playing like they are now they might slide up near the top 10. The fact is though is that they are average right now. Still better then what many expected and I still expect them to get better as they gel more and more.

Top 5 offense with hopefully a top half of the league D by years end and and you got a tough team to beat come playoff time.

The fg percentage points out the obvious, nets play at a tremendously slow pace. Nets aren't a good defensive team 26th in opponent fg percentage is the reason why

If they aren't now, they're on the cusp of being one. The only issue is Drew refuses to increase the playing time for Zaza and Ivan, who are arguably the best post defenders and rebounders on the team. Get Zaza above 30mins/game and Ivan over 20 mins/game and we will see the rebounding numbers will improve, which is all this team really lacks on that end.

may not have been updated when I looked, but they do show 13th now. They have also played the 20th most difficult schedule to date, so they have not had a tough lineup to play. They will most likely hover around the middle by seasons end imho, which is better than I thought they would be.

One thing I am impressed with is seeing the Clippers starting out the year as #4 on Hollingers defensive efficiency list (which I think are pretty solid).

I am a Nets fan and for anyone that thinks this guy is good is crazy.
With Lopez as the Nets number 1 option the Nets are 19-90.
Lopez is very soft and rebounds with one hand. Tonight he was out rebounded by Bargnani, he was also dunked over by him aswell. He plays terrible defense and is the worst rebounding Center in the league.
He is also very soft when it was a close game earlier in the year Lopez got fouled very hard and then Lopez went over and patted him on the back the player was suprised. He will never be an allstar with his lack of winning and lack of rebounding.
