Article Summary:

Offensively, Snyder has seen the 3-point light, unleashing the Jazz, who attempted 35 3-pointers per game last season, to fire a league-leading 42.8 3s per game in 2020-21, which they make at a 40 percent clip. The Portland Trail Blazers’ season was seemingly cooked when CJ McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic went down, but here they are at No. 5 in the West with a 21-14 record and their second- and third-best players hopefully on the short road back.

Miami Heat

On the surface, a.500 team – a worse record that Boston, which was deemed a loser – that went to the Finals last season would look like a clear loser. Here’s my theory: Miami is better when counted out, and with the way the first half played out, most everyone has already concluded that last season’s bubble run was a fluke.
