Default Trend in the NBA

The new NBA season is only about ten days old, but it seems that every night one or two teams are scoring in the 130's, and several teams have already reached the 140's. Last night Golden State won 144-122.

Is there a new rule in the league that it's illegal to play defense?

There is a new rule that results in resetting the shot clock to 14 seconds after an offensive rebound rather than the prior 24 seconds...

Defense is also a forgotten practice.

Ty Lue of the Cavs has said he wants to average 90+ shots per game, which essentially means he doesn't want to play defense since that would eat the clock and limit the amount of time they can get shots up. Cavs haven't won a game - how's that strategy working out, bud?

NBA isn't basketball. It's not fun to watch. Bring on college ball.

Yes, NBA scoring seems up. However, when playoff time comes, well, defense wins championships. The best defensive teams are the ones that usually go far in the playoffs - when it really counts. As far as fun to watch, last night was really fun, for me anyway. Curry went off for 51 points! He is the best pure shooter in the game today, really fun to watch him. And I saw some of the Bucks game - Giannis Antetokounmpo had a triple-double 32 pts, 10 assists, 18 rebounds - another really fun watch, heck of a player! And my Lakers finally won a game, woo hoo!

Defense wins championships sort of.....cant really defend the 3..

your team takes 30 threes our team takes 30 threes...thats the game within a game..you make 10 more than the other team thats 30 more points

holding teams to under 115-110 is the new holding teams under 100


I wonder if Vegas had decent game total over unders for the first week or could yo of made a fortune betting overs the first week

As a Lakers fan my whole life, I can't help but wonder often what Jerry West would have done in todays NBA 3-point environment. Probably scary good.

High scoring games can be fun to watch, so maybe it's a good thing. Time will tell.

Or just imagine Reggie Miller if he was just only one dimensional like Steph is and just stays behind the arc and not play defense ..

Ummm sorry, you can't bring Reggie Miller up as an example and then describe Steph Curry as 1-dimensionsal.

Not only does Curry outperform him by a comfortable margin in almost every category, both offensively and defensively, little 6'3" Steph Curry even outrebounds the 6'7" Miller, and by a good margin.
