Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

This question's SHEEP answer is also the sheep-iest answer of the tournament, selected by a whopping 13 of you. The Houston Rockets have an MVP candidate in James Harden, and finally some good shooters and rebounders around him. They check in at 5th in ORtg.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Our next most popular answer is worth 7 points. The Golden State Warriors comfortably lead the league in points scored per 100 possessions, at over 118.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Our next correct is worth 4 points. The Los Angeles Clippers look like the best version of themselves so far this year. Hopefully they'll all say healthy and we can find out for sure in the playoffs. They check in at 3rd in ORtg.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Next we have a pair of 3-point answers. The Toronto Raptors are being led by early scoring champ DeMar DeRozan. Will he regress? Time will tell, but for now, the Raptors are 4th in ORtg.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Our other 3-point answer is those boring ol' San Antonio Spurs. Still getting it done even without Timmy D, they are 6th in points scored per 100 possessions.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Our next correct is a 2-point answer. I felt going into this season that Damian Lillard is a super duper star, and he'd prove it on the court this season. His Portland Trailblazers are 8th in ORtg. Damn you Rex Banner for taking away my ace!

...I guess I'll settle for splitting 2 points with you.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Question 4 closes with 1 ace. LeBron is making another strong case for yet another MVP award, and The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking strong in the early going. They are currently 2nd in the NBA in ORtg.

With a SHEEP score of 13, and 7 different correct answers submitted, incorrects will receive a score of 20 for this question.

Thanks TJ! I'm somehow still within touching distance of the podium after that massive SHEEP.

Sorry for the delay, been busy with some IRL stuff.

Without further ado, who's here? It's time for the Question 5 reveal!

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Kicking us off once again, it's our ol' pal trollface! His love for Philly continues unabated, as he selected the Philadelphia 76ers for this question.

They've been surprisingly not-terrible, at least when Embiid is on the floor, but they check in at 23rd in DRtg.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Our blue ribbon loser award for this week goes to DisGunBGud. After acing with a face-melting TJ Warren for the 30-point scorer question 2 weeks ago, he went a bit off the wall for this question. He selected the New York Knicks, who are 26th in DRtg, good for the worst answer submitted by the contestants.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Our next-most spectacular incorrect was selected by 8 contestants. The Boston Celtics have had a strong defensive reputation, but they've been hurt by injuries in the early going. They check in at 20th in DRtg.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Our next incorrect is the Washington Wizards. I don't know what this team is doing, should they blow it up and trade John Wall? I don't know, but I do know that they are currently 19th in DRtg.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Our next incorrect is the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers. They have a middle-of-the-pack DRtg that checks in at 18th in the league.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Also towards the bottom of the DRtg leaderboard are the Minnesota Timberwolves. They have notched a 25th-best DRtg in the league so far.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Our next incorrect was played by yours truly and 2 others. The San Antonio Spurs are usually money in the bank for a question like this, but unfortunately they come up short this time. They're 13th in the league in DRtg.
