    1. i think it’s reasonable for the hawks to worry whether capela’s slow start is about getting back into shape or if he might be facing a permanent decline in explosiveness, perhaps related to his multi-year achilles issues. like mitch, you don’t have to watch capela for long this year to see that his pogo stick has looked like the older model. his dunks per 36 ytd have been 1.8X vs average 3.3X or so for the prior two years. his rim freq and % are at career lows. and the hawks are giving up 120/100 with capela on the court. admittedly, tiny sample for on/off, but it’s such an ugly number it might not be irrelevant. he’s far from their only problem, their wings have been mostly shitty relative to what they ought to be and trae has his new-rules FTA hit, but capela is the one i’d be most concerned about so far. they do have okongwu coming back at some point.

    2. I said last year that I didn’t believe in the Huerter hype, so far I’m looking right… not that it means much yet.

      I think the Hawks will figure it out and at least make the playoffs. But Trae isn’t the same & if Capela can’t lock down their defense, they won’t be too scary.

    3. I don’t see CLE, WAS, or MIA keeping up their early play. MIA is good enough to still finish ahead of us, CLE & WAS would surprise me.

      Geez, CHA fell off fast. 5 losses in a row, incinerator back on.

    4. The Hawks have had a pretty brutal schedule so far, having played the Jazz twice and the Nuggets, Suns and Warriors on the road

      I’m not sure our record would be much better than theirs with that type of schedule.

    5. Atlanta has faced a difficult schedule so far, but they still lost to the Jazz without Mitchell and the Suns without Ayton, and their only wins are against the Pistons and Pelicans, the Wizards after losing to them and the very first game against Dallas where the Mavs shot 30% from the field. Some pretty big losses too in the mix. They should be freaking out more than we do.if they’re just losing because they’re facing better teams, well, what does that say about them?

    6. ***if they’re just losing because they’re facing better teams, well, what does that say about them?***

      It says that the west is good, and that if they make the finals, they should probably just forfeit.

    7. Regardless of who’s not playing, starting our season having to travel to Golden State, Denver, Utah and Phoenix in the first 12 games could have gotten our season off to a pretty rocky start.

      But I do agree that the Hawks are not looking solid right now.

    8. I thought the Hawks would have good depth but most of their team has been terrible this season. Trey, Bogdan, Collins and Capela have been at least decent and after that it’s a shit show

    9. @ChrisKirschner
      Some early season worrisome numbers for the Hawks:

      27th in DRTG
      23rd in net rating
      26th in shots at the rim frequency
      26th in rim accuracy
      27th in 3pt frequency
      3rd in midrange frequency
      28th in rim defense
      28th in half court defense
      23rd in transition offens

    10. From a Ringer piece, not meant to suggest how we’ll do this year, only to suggest it’s early yet; and while it’s fun to guess, it’s early yet.

      The 2017-18 campaign included two major early overachievers: The Pistons started 7-3 despite an over/under of just 38.5, then won at a 36.5-win pace the rest of the season; the Knicks started 6-4 despite an over/under of 30.5, then won at a 26-win pace the rest of the way.

    11. I just need us to knock off the Trae is King of NY nonsense.

      Well you might not want to watch on Christmas bc they way our defense is making scrubs look, Trae will likely play very well.

    12. If Thibs can’t fix the defense, and we’re languishing at like #25 defensive rating all year long… well, it might be time to reevaluate Thibs as a coach.

    13. JK47:

      Or time to reevaluate Payton and Bullock relative to Walker and Fournier (not to mention the occasional times Frank got minutes). I’d like to see a little of McBride on the nights Kemba is out.

    14. The Hawks will be fine. They started out slowly last year. Maybe the expectations were a little too high because they overachieved last year, but they still have a very good team. The east is TOUGH.

    15. (not to mention the occasional times Frank got minutes)

      I knew at some point you were going to at least imply Frank Ntilikina’s 322 minutes were the difference between our 3rd ranked defense last year and our 25th ranked defense this year. Thank you for not disappointing.

    16. Let’s face it, our Deeefense sucks!: Or time to reevaluatePayton and Bullock relative to Walker and Fournier (not to mention the occasional times Frank got minutes).I’d like to see a little of McBride on the nights Kemba is out.

      I don’t care if Elfrid Payton was the second coming of Gary Payton on defense, his offense was so putrid I’ll take the defensive drop off to have a PG who can actually, you know, make outside shots.

    17. Do you guys remember the game Frank scored 4 points, had 4 rebounds and looked like he’s mastering the perimeter handoff to Randle? That was awesome.

    18. Let’s face it, our Deeefense sucks!: Or time to reevaluatePayton and Bullock relative to Walker and Fournier (not to mention the occasional times Frank got minutes).I’d like to see a little of McBride on the nights Kemba is out.

      I mean is Reggie Bullock the DPOY or something? How much freaking defensive impact does Reggie goddamn Bullock have for crying out loud.

      I don’t doubt that Fournier and Kemba are a downgrade from Bullock and Payton but its not like the latter dudes are Scottie Pippen and Gary Payton out there.

    19. Macri’s newsletter today has some reassuring news regarding offensive and defensive rankings after the first ten games. Basically, last season after ten games the offensive rankings looked similar to how they did at the end of the season, but the defensive rankings were all over the place:

      Here’s the good news: good offense seems to sustain, whereas early bad defense isn’t necessarily a death knell. Last season, the teams ranked one through five in offensive rating through 10 games ended up ranking 5th, 6th, 3rd, 24th and 2nd by the end of the year. The one outlier was the Lakers, who dealt with significant injuries to their two best players.

      Meanwhile, we saw several examples of teams whose early defensive profile ended up being a complete misnomer:

      Cavs: 1st after 10 games ? 25th at season’s end

      Mavs: 2nd ? 21st

      Pelicans: 10th ? 23rd

      Bulls: 28th ? 12th

      Clippers: 24th ? 8th

      Nuggets: 25th ? 11th

      Warriors: 22nd ? 5th

      The Knicks, if you’re wondering, were the 17th rated defense after a dozen games, and went on to finish 4th. We know they can turn it around this year because they already have once before.

    20. TNFH, I saw that in the Macri newsletter too and felt reassured. Macri’s whole specialty is finding the most positive spin on all things Knicks, but he also doesn’t pull positivity out of thin air.

    21. The PGs burning us is probably gonna be a trend this season but the horrible 3 pt defense is something that seems fixable at least from where we are now. I’m sure Thibs will adjust to leaving corner 3’s open every possession.

    22. Interesting enough, last year DBPM was like this:
      – Kemba was a -0.7 to Elfrid’s -0.6;
      – Evan was a 0.7 to Reggie’s 0.6;
      I’m pretty sure the stats are trash and Elfrid was runner-up to Reggie, the DPOY. :D

    23. I mean, I would have liked if we got the second coming of Gary Payton because his actual kid is looking really damn good for the Warriors now, but Elf wasn’t it and quite frankly Bullock also wasn’t.

      I think our biggest issue so far hasn’t actually been personnel related necessarily, but a choice on how to defend open shooters. Against both Indiana and Toronto they ran a billion high pick and rolls that always led to an open shooter because we kept helping off of them to keep guards from penetrating. I don’t think it’s a bad fundamental choice as you’d rather have a role player shooting a 3 than allow penetration for a guy like Vanvleet or Brogdon, but in today’s NBA even those guys can get hot when open and if you’re unlucky you’re getting torched.

      I do think Noel and Gibson have done a better job at hedging on screens against ball handlers and Noel specially has great hands and disrupts so many plays. Mitch still needs to get better at this and everyone else has to make the extra effort to close down on shooters in this situations.

    24. IF Elf had just been regular bad elf with poor shooting he wouldn’t have been THAT bad. But he really fell off a cliff last year in a way that I have never seen before with a player. He would literally just brick wide open layups. It was crazy.

      I mean, yeah we’re the Knicks. I want us to be good at defense. But let’s not get it twisted. The ceiling for this team is SO much higher than last year’s team. I mean we’re 7-4 and people are complaining and that is because we have all seen flashes of how good this team could be if we gel a bit more on offense and tighten up the defense. Lets try to keep it in perspective. Last year was fun. They were scrappy but lacked talent.

    25. Re: ATL underperforming

      I’ll also add that Bogdanovic had a career last year and so far has played closer to his career numbers.

      People last year though Huerter was breaking out, I thought it was a mirage. So far it looks like Huerter is back to his normal self. He’s underperforming his career numbers, but this year isn’t wildly off.

    26. If you wanted to keep freaking out and normalize ATL’s start:

      ATL has played the 6th toughest schedule

      Knicks played the 21st toughest schedule

      Maybe ATL lost to an injured Jazz team, but that’s still one less time they play the Jazz in the future

    27. To me it looks like some of the problems are more scheme-related (and luck-related) than personnel-related at this point. Or at least I think it’s too early to conclude the latter. Anecdotally, it looks like they are overly committed to helping prevent penetration. You see this when a guard makes a simple move to get into the paint: the wing defenders always seem to be a couple of steps too far from the other guards in order to help down the middle, so two simple lateral passes gets the ball to the corner 3. Maybe last year they were faster to close down on shooters, but I don’t think it’s that. They are still ok in doing the right rotations; it’s just that they are always in rotation when they do not have to be. With two pretty good rim protectors as centers, they should be willing to live with more guard penetration instead of uncontested corner 3s.

    28. I don’t watch baseball anymore, but I remember back when I did that the “best team always wins” was kind of marginalized by a hot pitcher in the playoffs. For example, the ‘98 Padres probably didn’t belong in the World Series, but Kevin Brown started 3 out of 7 games in one series and basically just pitched the team to victory while everybody else just stood around and watched. Basketball, I always felt, the best team will win a 7 game series and there was never a “hot pitcher” element to the equation. But, now, with 3 pt shooting so prominent and elastic, I think we saw the Clippers beat the Jazz in the playoffs due to guys like Reggie Jackson pulling a Kevin Brown. That’s just a changing element of the sport, it seems, and though it probably doesn’t make the eventual champion arbitrary, I think it makes the playoffs a lot more uncertain in any given matchup now.

    29. Hubert:
      Fucking Jowles, man. I’ve had Shanice stuck in my head for 6 days now.

      Ditto (although I secretly liked that song when it came out — very secretly…)

      This was a great analysis and spot-on.

      Also for a team that was hyped as the Hawks were to start the season, they should at least be .500. I mean even WE were able to split that 6-game west coast road trip last May (that Lakers loss in OT still haunts me). They look good in spurts but their defense isn’t great so far and besides Trae, they really don’t have a lot of shot creators, more like spot on shooters.

      And fuck Trae Young (it’s a lame Garden chant tho). His quote on the regular season being boring and general weasel attitude makes him so unlikeable. And the guy can’t guard a chair. Yeah he’ll probably drop 50 on us Christmas day but don’t mean I got to respect the dude.

      This too was a great analysis and spot-on! :-)

      Fuck Trae Young.

    33. Trae is a kinda likable villain. I sort of sympathize with a little guy being so quick that he can’t be guarded by bigger, slower guards without holding or fouling, and Trae should be allowed to take at least some advantage of that. Isiah Thomas sure did, but he took his lumps too. Going around screens and stopping short or throwing one’s body around like a rag doll or jamming on the brakes in a guys path when getting chased up the court is way outside of any deference to smaller guys and I am thrilled that the NBA is correcting for that.

    34. swiftandabundant: IF Elf had just been regular bad elf with poor shooting he wouldn’t have been THAT bad. But he really fell off a cliff last year in a way that I have never seen before with a player. He would literally just brick wide open layups. It was crazy.

      See: Jason Kidd 2013 playoffs

    35. JK47: I mean is Reggie Bullock the DPOY or something? How much freaking defensive impact does Reggie goddamn Bullock have for crying out loud.

      I don’t doubt that Fournier and Kemba are a downgrade from Bullock and Payton but its not like the latter dudes are Scottie Pippen and Gary Payton out there.

      I get this, but with a caveat. Team defense is not just about individual defenders, but making it possible for players to have each other’s back. Here’s where Thibs has a tremendous advantage over us in that he knows exactly where each player should be and what they should be doing in a given defensive possession, and sees things that a lot of us (even sharp-eyed guys like me and you) miss. When Kemba keeps his man out of the paint for 2 seconds instead of 3 or 4, that throws the entire defense out of rotation and dramatically increases the probability of an open 3 pointer or dunk from someone other than the guy he’s guarding. You don’t have to be Pippen or The Glove to “shorten” a possession and keep rim protectors from constantly over-rotating.

      Inevitably, the question becomes: do you add enough on offense to make up for what you cost the team on defense. I would have a hard time saying that the answer is yes for these two vs. Payton (not the late season version) and Bullock. It’s probably pretty close.

    36. I mean is Reggie Bullock the DPOY or something? How much freaking defensive impact does Reggie goddamn Bullock have for crying out loud.

      I think Reggie is a very good defender. I thought that. But I don’t think he is better than Fournier overall. He’d probably provide better balance in some of these lineups.

      Can Shanice play defense?

    37. thenoblefacehumper: I knew at some point you were going to at least imply Frank Ntilikina’s 322 minutes were the difference between our 3rd ranked defense last year and our 25th ranked defense this year. Thank you for not disappointing.

      I obviously don’t think Frank’s limited minutes were a huge factor, but virtually every move we made was a defensive downgrade and Nerlens (who is underrated here because of the Mitch love) missed some games this year.

      Why are we even wondering why our defense isn’t as good?

      None of these players is a DPOY candidate or has a huge impact on their own, but cumulatively it matters, especially because Kemba is bad.

      We made a tradeoff for more offense and are hoping the net is positive. It’s not clear to me it will be yet (at least not by a lot) because I happen to think defense is what gives a team the kind of consistency we are lacking. And we are compounding that inconsistency with all the 3s.

    38. Payton was clearly not the answer, especially late in the season when he lost his confidence and went into a death spiral. But he was a better defender than Kemba. That’s not saying he was a great defender. It saying exactly what it’s saying. He was a better defender than Kemba. So we added Kemba’s 3 point shooting and spacing which a big plus, but we downgraded the defense. The “net” is hard to figure out because there are other moving parts, but it’s not as large as just the offensive side.

    39. To expand, we’re giving up 3s at essentially the same rate as Miami and Golden State, who both have good defenses so far, except the teams shooting them against us are making them more often

    40. Our declining D is mildly troubling. I’m glad we have Kemba instead of Elf. The decline in D from repacing Elf with Kemba looks clearer to me than the decline from replacing Bullock with Fournier. Neither replacement seems enough to explain the drop-off we’ve seen. My hunch is that’s got at least as much to do with changes in how guys who were on the team last year are playing as it does with roster changes.

      Both Mitch and Noel were quick enough last year to keep pressure on whoever they were guarding outside the paint and still recover to defend the basket when our guards got beat. I’m not sure Mitch still is quick enough. Nerlens still is. He’s just plain fast. Taj stays home and sags more. I didn’t check the stats on it, but it seems like for whatever reason we’re getting beat in the paint a lot more than last year in addition to our worse perimeter D.

      Randle’s effort on D looks to me like it’s fallen off a bit from last year. He doesn’t look bad to me this year, just not as consistently really good because he’s not always trying as hard. The intensity level on D by the team as a whole seems lower to me this year.

      Is that how it looks to you guys?

    41. It’s not really that complicated.

      1. Though ISM grew to be the warm and fuzzy and cute and cuddly para-mascot of the 2020-21 season, he was statistically very real and materially real. Hollinger and others have crunched the numbers and they’re robust. He has left the building.

      2. They did in fact replace Elf and Bullock with Kemba and Fournier. That’s a definite defensive downgrade. I’d put it as Elf, OK; Bullock, average to good; Kemba, terrible; Fournier, meh. Replacing “OK and average to good” with “terrible and meh” matters, again materially.

      3. General mojo/continuity/effort/cohesion/noise. They don’t keep the points and wings from doing their thing as much as last year and that does indeed have knockoff effects on rotations, helps, close outs, etc.. Mitch is no longer Pogo Stick Mitch, Randle got paid, Frank’s gone, the team is no longer the Little Engine that Could, etc. Those things also matter.

      I’d rank La mort de M. ISM as the primary factor and then the other two in whatever proportion you want. All three are contributing and they add up to a lot.

    42. @FredKatz
      Nerlens Noel is OUT with a sprained right knee, Tom Thibodeau says. Mitchell Robinson is available.

      The Noel stuff sucks. But that’s also why in theory you want to keep both him and Mitch around, since both are fragile and will miss time.

    43. I love everything about that song, even the cheesy rap
      break (“la di da/twinkly dee/do you…”). Find a new slant.

      My favorite album of the 2010s was Death Grips’ The Money Store and I unironically love that Shanice song. Containing multitudes, as it were. Another great one from that era (New Jack Swing, again) is “Poison” by Bel Biv Devoe.

    44. I LOVED Poison. Still do.

      And Geo, one of the few advantages to getting older is sometimes getting a little wiser. For example, being able to not click on links that you think will ruin your day. Like the theme song from Three’s Company.

    45. Was skimming through a very, very bad Netflix movie last night — won’t name it as I don’t want someone to be confused and think I’m recommending it — but it had a scene in a party where a guy made everyone stand perfectly still; he then put on a track and dared them all to not start dancing. Poison would be the song I’d put on.

    46. knicks minus 3.5 tonight…not that great given bucks played last night…if we had elf and bollocks it would be better…
