Usually good teams take the foot off the gas in February, but month 2 of the season is when bad teams start to realize they are bad. Which of these will win out this February where these two events are at the same time?

Lakers now entering their second week on the road geeze I wonder why their defense is starting to fall apart.

John Collins should just watch some Hassan Whiteside vids from his first three years in the league and just commit to that level of not passing to reduce the number of bad turnovers he has.

Cavs are a real nice matchup for the Wolves. Their good defense kinda doesn't matter because the Wolves offense is spastic enough it's sorta equally bad regardless of the D and the Cavs offense is bad enough the Wolves look almost credible.

Malik Monk has shown promise all four years and it hasn't happened for a variety of reasons, so I'm glad it finally seems to be working out for him

Then again this could just be powerful contract year energy

Kira getting some early minutes and I'm happy. He's getting to the rim super easily, hasn't been able to finish, but is throwing some absolute dimes that are being clanked by his teammates.

AD as a 50% free throw shooter really drops him down a tier, there's no reason not to hack him to death now.

Marv has the gangly frame of a house spider, but for some reason he literally just folds himself in half every time he's on defense and gets blown by. Like a spider that's dying and curling up its legs. This analogy isn't very good, I know.

Meanwhile, Zion is just letting him get setup wherever Marvin wants to be on offense. No resistance at all, so Bagley gets to shoot his practice shots over and over and Zion doesn't have the reach to contest them.

Hopefully this game will teach him that he needs to start doing his work on defense early.
