And finally…Here are a few note-worthy statistical trends for NBA teams through the first few weeks of the season, which should help with tricky matchup- and category-based lineup decisions.

Teams allowing the most points: Cavaliers (104.8) Suns (104.0), Trail Blazers (100.9) Raptors (100.6), Heat (100.2)...and with the exception of the Heat, these are also the teams that yield the highest field goal percentages
