Article Summary:

Michael Porter Jr. is off to a slow start with just 22 points and seven rebounds in two games, but it shouldn’t be long before he surpasses those numbers in a single game. New York Knicks
2021-22 record: 2-1
Previous ranking: 14

It’s only three games, but one trend to watch for the Knicks is diminishing minutes for Kemba Walker, who went from 36 in New York’s double-overtime win to 22 and 19, respectively, in a pair of games against Orlando. Sacramento Kings
2021-22 record: 1-2
Previous ranking: 23

Outside of a few Tar Heels die-hards convinced their guy was due, who had Harrison Barnes averaging 28.3 points and 10.3 rebounds per game through the first three games of the season? His production has been impressive, but the Kings dropped two out of their first three to start things off. Detroit Pistons
2021-22 record: 0-2
Previous ranking: 27

Without Cade Cunningham, the Pistons dropped their first two games of the season – both against the Bulls – looking competitive in the first game at home before getting blown out in the second in Chicago.
