Die NBA-Verteidigung kann mit den Offensiven mit der höchsten Punktzahl nicht mithalten

von NFI Redaktion

Throughout the season, debates about the intensity of NBA defense have been prevalent in sports discussions on television, podcasts, and columns. Starting Tuesday, the top five offensive teams will hold the top five rankings in this category in NBA history. Six players have scored 60 or more points this season. Leading the league in scoring with 34.3 points per game while shooting nearly 50 percent from the field is Luka Dončić. In a recent game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Dončić’s Dallas Mavericks posted shooting splits of 52.7/42.4/60.

The challenges continued, with the Cavaliers ultimately winning 121-119. Their shooting percentages were 53/50/72.2. Despite five teams averaging over 120 points per game, the high-scoring nature of the NBA today was evident in the final minutes of the Mavericks vs. Cavaliers game. The shooting was simply exceptional.

With less than four minutes left in the game, the Mavericks held a ten-point lead. Max Strus hit three-pointers in four consecutive possessions for the Cavs, with several shots taken from long distances. Kyrie Irving casually sank a deep 33-foot shot, highlighting the offensive firepower on display.

In the modern game, the court is too vast for defenders to cover effectively. Effective defense now starts further back, around 25 feet, compared to the traditional 17 feet near the rim. The evolution of long-range shooting has pushed the limits of defense to new extremes.

While complaints were raised about this season’s NBA All-Star Game, the high shooting percentages showcased the offensive prowess of players like Tyrese Haliburton. The exhibition game saw an array of deep and contested threes being made, highlighting the remarkable shooting abilities of the players.

The league’s landscape has changed irrevocably, with the prominence of the three-point shot fueling offensive explosions. The relentless pursuit of points and the mastery of shooting from deep have reshaped how the game is played at its highest level.

As the playoffs approach, the pace may slow down, and scoring becomes tougher, showcasing a different dynamic to how the game unfolds. However, during the regular season, the emphasis on long-range shooting and offensive efficiency continues to drive high-scoring games and intense competition throughout the league.
