It's often challenging to distinguish reality from noise in the early stages of the NBA season. Small sample sizes throw all the data off.
(For instance, the Grizzlies' 4-1 record and minus-1.7 net rating.) Furthermore, teams cannot escape behind gaudy records.
A "1" in the victory column five games into the season is very different from a 1-4 streak in February.
They are the proprietors of a record from those 1-4. Poor defense has been employed. Keep an eye on the James Harden-Joel Embiid combination.
Additionally, the offseason signings haven't had the impact that many people (including myself) had hoped they would.
Do I truly worry about this team, overall? The Sixers still have the talent, in my opinion, to make things work. In overall, the offense has been excellent.
