Warriors, Hawks, Blazers In Top-10 On Both Offense, Defense

Feb 12, 2015 12:50 PM

The Golden State Warriors, Atlanta Hawks and Portland Trail Blazers enter the All-Star break as the only three teams in the NBA ranked in the top-10 in both offense and defense.

Fourteen other teams are in the top-10 in either offensive or defensive efficiency.

The Chicago Bulls ranked second in defensive efficiency last season and 28th on offense, but they are currently 9th on offense and just 13th on defense.

Teams that contend for a championship in the NBA typically are in the top-10 in both categories, or are particularly dominant on one end of the floor.

The current top-10 in efficiency differential consists of the Warriors, Hawks, Clippers, Mavericks, Blazers, Grizzlies, Raptors, Spurs, Rockets and Cavaliers.

The old/young distinction is based on the average age of players who play 15 or more minutes per game.

Enes Kanter Hopes For Trade From Jazz Before Deadline

Feb 12, 2015 12:50 AM

Enes Kanter said he hopes to be traded before the NBA trade deadline on Feb. 19.

Kanter said he has been frustrated by his role in his three-plus years in Utah.

Kanter left Wednesday's game with an eye injury and never retured despite his claim that he was healthy enough to play.

"It was not my eye at all. I don't know what it was, but it was not my eye at all. So we'll see what's going to happen," Kanter said.

Kanter will be a restricted free agent in July.
