Two thoughts I also left at Peachtree Hoops: 1. The increase in opp OR rate could be from playing more zone, I have to guess in an effort to hide Bibby and Crawford. As I first noticed this in the Thunder game--the Hawks played zone the whole second half because no one could keep Westbrook in front of them--and I missed the Clippers game, I cannot say if an increase in zone D is an actual trend or happened only in one game.2. The decrease in Hawks' OR rate could be from the starters wearing down a bit, as they have played more minutes recently and are now back at #1 in the league in minutes played.Hoping you will confirm, deny, or offer additional information, Hawks fans and experts.
