Defense first teams have underwhelmed

The first month of the NBA season has produced four top flight defensive teams:

Atlanta Hawks, Indiana Pacers, Philadelphia 76ers & Orlando Magic

Yet it turns out that the overall record of these teams is just 23-23.

Unfortunately these sound defensive squads have had to face offensive juggernauts called the Knickerbockers and Heat.

As we are only 14% through the season the W/L records will likely change.  My guess is that point prevention will win out and all four of these teams will capture a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
