Topics for this week's episode include:

  • Star injuries are piling up around the league, with Damian Lillard, Bam Adebayo, Brook Lopez, and Devin Booker all hitting the shelf, and Zion Williamson suffering a setback in his recovery. Which piece of recent injury news is most consequential?
  • How Mikal Bridges, Deandre Ayton, and the rest of the Suns slowed down the Warriors in the first game of their ballyhooed matchup, and what to expect in the rematch Friday.
  • Rim frequency is down across the league. What's driving the shift, and does getting to the rim matter as much as it used to?
  • The NBA is an adaptive league. What will the next tactical inefficiency look like?
  • How have the Timberwolves turned their defense around, and how sustainable is their terrific start at that end of the floor?
  • Can the T-Wolves find a better two-way balance?
