1

38-10 - 1/8
Beat the Heat and embarrassed the Magic minus Derrick Rose. Time for a trade? That’s a joke, but it should give you an idea of the overall depth of this team.

33-11 - 1/5
Went 1-2 in against the Bulls and Magic last week. Shane Battier and Udonis Haslem still can’t seem to find the range.

34-11 - 1/4
Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the gang second in league in scoring (102.7 ppg), but need to get back to protecting home court.

29-14 - 1/11
Expecting Stephen Jackson to be an upgrade over Richard Jefferson. If they’re right, it could pay huge dividends.

28-17 2 1/15
Ramon Sessions will make them noticeably better once he adjusts. If not, Mike Brown may be one-and-done.

Dwight Howard soap opera lives to see another day. Now the Magic can just play.

Landed athletic shooting guard they sought in Nick Young, but will he make up for loss of Chauncey Billups?

Zach Randolph is back. Question is, will Gilbert Arenas be better fit than Allen Iverson once was?

Slowing down after early season sparkle. Have about a month to rediscover it.

Dirk Nowitzki and the guys starting to show signs of what made them champions last year.

Roy Hibbert looking just average since All-Star Game appearance. That needs to change and fast.

26-20 3 4/14
Joe Johnson back to quietly killing foes, but how long can they really expect to survive without starters Al Horford and Marvin Williams?

Uh oh. Danilo Gallinari is injured again. Time for JaVale McGee to pull it together in new city.

Seem to be losing big men by the minute. Would play Heat in first round if playoffs started today.

Linsanity may be dead, but Jeremy Lin still playing pretty well. When he does, Knicks have a chance.

Commitment to defense starting to pay off. Doesn’t hurt that Steve Nash is still around to run the offense.

Have won just three of past 10 games. Kyle Lowry can’t return soon enough.

Still capable of beating anybody. Improvement of rookies Enes Kanter and Alec Burks helping.

Monta Ellis has never made it to an All-Star Game. Maybe a move East will change that.

Staying the course without Ricky Rubio. Thank you, Kevin Love. But perhaps biggest miracle is that Michael Beasley remained after trading deadline.

Unable to deal Raymond Felton or Jamal Crawford and fired coach. Just playing out the schedule.

17-26 2 16/28
Have looked almost twice as good in road games. Sort of stuff that can happen when you’re best player (Kyrie Irving) is 19 years old.

18-25 - 19/26
Fans disgusted that Monta Ellis is gone. Warriors hoping Andrew Bogut and others can change all that.

16-29 - 22/29
Greg Monroe quietly becoming second-best center in East. Perhaps Joe Dumars can finally make up for drafting Darko Milicic.

J.J. Hickson hopes dashed, but young guys left behind appear to be making fast improvement.

Andrea Bargnani and Jose Calderon back together again. Now if they could only speed things up to land that lottery pick.

Looking more and more like Deron Williams won’t be playing home games in Brooklyn next season.

Eric Gordon expected to return soon. Hornets just hope it doesn’t worsen draft position.

Trading for Nene, and shipping out Nick Young and JaVale McGee, perhaps the first positive step of the season.

Paul Silas couldn’t feel good to learn Mike D’Antoni and Nate McMillan were fired last week.
