NBA Season Recap as of November 11th

Bradley Hallick NBA Basketball SportsThe NBA season began last month, as I take a look at which teams are coming hot out of the gate. Steph Curry is leading the red-hot Golden State Warriors to a 5-1 record at the beginning of the season. He is averaging 27.2 points, 7.2 assists, 6.3 rebounds, and 3.5 steals per game while Draymond Green has stepped up, subbing in for the injured David Lee.

The Houston Rockets are amongst the teams to watch starting the season off with a 6-1 record. James Harden and Dwight Howard are leading the pack, outscoring their opponents by an average of 13 points per game.

Next on the hot seat are the Memphis Grizzlies. Lead by Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph, the Grizzlies have the best winning percentage in the NBA since January 1st of this year with a 43-16 record.

The last team with only one loss is the Toronto Raptors. The Raptors are lead by 5th year player out of USC, DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry from Villanova. The team is currently leading the NBA in points per game with 107.4.

The next best bundle of teams consists of the Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat, Washington Wizards, Los Angeles Clippers and Sacramento Kings all with only two losses. The Heat without LeBron James seemed to have filled his hole fairly efficiently with increased performances by Wade and Bosh along with better than expected play from Luol Deng.

The Bulls are playing smart basketball, as they are easing in Derek Rose along with increased rest time for Joakim Noah.

The defending champion, San Antonio Spurs, have slipped a little, starting off the season with a 2-3 record. Don’t look too into this, as they are still perfecting Kawhi Leonard in their offensive scheme.

The Washington Wizards are looking great so far, and that is without one of their star players from last year, Bradley Beal. Paul Peirce is stepping up in the veteran role, and with Bradley Beal coming back to the lineup in a couple of weeks, the Wizards will be a though matchup moving forward.

Shark bites back: Norman back on course for first time since chainsaw accident

Looking more like 35 than his soon-to-be 60, Greg Norman returned to competitive golf Wednesday morning. Well, sort of. It was only a pro-am at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, but when Norman teed it up in the final morning time, it marked his first golf action since a serious chainsaw accident Sept. 13. Norman, who will work the 18th tower with Joe Buck when FOX begins broadcasting PGA golf at next month’s Franklin Templeton Shootout, suffered nerve damage in his left wrist, and while he could be seen shaking his left hand after hitting practice balls, he reported that it felt fine.
