That, of course, would be a team that played at pace -- a killer fast offense making up for a more lackluster defense.

Probably this was the early 1960's, though it seems like defensive stats from the era might be harder to find. This compares a lot of the great championship teams

And we have a new winner. The '59-'60 Celtics gave up 116.2. Basketball-Reference.com has most of the stats you could want.

And that's without 3-pointers, obviously. Or a shot clock for that matter.

I thought they did have a shot clock. You see those old films of Bob Cousy and they look like the frames are running through the projector too fast, but apparently they were really running around like that.

Go Grizz tonight! At the very least I hope there is a good series. It is a pity we are matched up against the Clips.

I know it's still kind of early but the Nets-Bulls is the only series that has excited me thus far (I did enjoy the closing minutes of the OKC-Houston game last night though).

Foodguy, or someone else who follows the Lakers - now that the Cavs have hired Brown, does that mean that the Lakers have to keep paying him still? I can't seem to find this out over the interwebz.

yes. they'd have to pay D'Antoni too if they can him early. Thats why they are reluctant to fire D'Antoni - shelling out major cash for two ex coaches is too much even for the lakers.

Its also the reason Donald Sterling most likely doesn't want to fire Vinny Delnegro - the product might not be the best, but its a winning playoff team and extremely profitable so no need to fire a coach with an active contract.

Once Mike Brown's contract gets settled with the Cavs, the Lakers won't have to pay him any more. So they can go ahead and fire D'Antoni and replace him with someone else, then repeat the cycle as soon as D'Antoni gets hired by someone!
