Raptors in Favour
With their 10-1 record, Toronto Raptors clearly have an edge this season. Four-time All-Star, Kyle Lowry has had an exceptional start to the season, dishing out assists in double-digits. Lowry is averaging around 11.6 assists for the season, well above his career best of 7.4 assists in 2013-14. The Raptors are currently leading the Eastern Conference.
Mile High Start
Denver Nuggets are 9-1 for the first time since their first NBA season (1976-77). They are also currently leading in the Western Conference. In the Week 4 matchups, they will be up against Grizzlies on Thursday at FedEx Forum in Memphis.
The overall No. 1 pick of the 2018 Draft – Deandre Ayton of Phoenix Suns, is living up to the hype in the early season. Averaging at 16 points, 10.7 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game, he is the first player since Chris Webber in 1993 to average at least 15/10/3 through nine career games. Going by his season start, he will be a strong contender for ‘Rookie of the Year’.
Tough Tests await Warriors
While the Golden State Warriors have been dominant so far this season, it can be safely attributed to their easy fixtures. They have not won against the 11 teams that have a winning record as yet. The following weeks will be full of opportunities for them to secure critical wins and establish their foothold this season.
LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers) is just 114 points away from overtaking Wilt Chamberlain and securing fifth place amongst the all-time top scorers. With a 26-point average, it is safe to assume that The King is just 4-5 games away from rising up in the charts.
