Compared to the rest of the league, there is a sense of neutrality about ball movement. They are doing an above average job of preventing live ball turnovers (steals). An opponent steals rate of 9.4% is not something to brag about, but it is far better to not have it be a problem.They have an abysmal offensive rebounding rate of 18.8% this season. Offensive rebounding is not their thing, it should be important. They are socially distancing on the offensive glass!

Their defensive efficiency is 107.6, which means they have an above average defense relative to other teams in the league. This analysis would be woefully incomplete without going into further detail aside from just a defensive efficiency rating.
