NBA Breakfast Special: Like A Good Neighbor, Chris Paul Is There

The Utah Jazz have turned back into a pumpkin offensively, and questions must now be raised whether Rudy Gobert is doing more harm than good to the team since his presence tends to turn Utah’s offense into a clogged toilet. There are more questions than that, however. Donovan Mitchell has turned into the focal point and the primary scorer—and his team-high 26 points in Utah’s 112-101 loss to the Houston Rockets on national TV Thursday night certainly spoke to that development—but what is the rest of the offense doing? Ricky Rubio‘s not facilitating, and he’s not the kind of player …

Ball had 10 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists. And you’d see that and think “whoa, he almost got a triple-double, that’s great!” Until you realize he shot 3-of-12 from the field, 1-of-7 …

Is This 2018 NBA Team Any Good?: Washington Wizards

by Fox Doucette John Wall and the Wizketeers started last season 2-8. They finished it 3-5. In between, they went 44-20. Wall and company gave the Celtics all they wanted and nearly snuck into the Eastern Conference Finals out of the four seed, in the process perpetrating the brutal murder of the Atlanta Hawks as an NBA entity and precipitating the rebuild in the 404 that we’ll get to tomorrow. But for now, the question becomes was Washington’s 49-win campaign and solid playoff run a sign of things to come, or just a sign that the East is legitimately that …
