Is the Southeast Division the best in the NBA?
The Denver Nuggets are learning very quickly that the Southeast Division is tough this year. When the final buzzer sounded on Saturday night at the Highlight Factory the scoreboard read Hawks 125-Nuggets 100, and the Southeast Division’s record improved to 20-10 on the season.
Everyone knew the defending Eastern Conference Champion Magic were going to be tough. Everyone who paid attention to the Hawks 31-10 home record last season knew that the Highlight Factory produces mainly home team footage. The Heat have been playing as well as anyone the first two weeks of the season, and the Wizards are much improved with a healthy Gilbert Arenas.
Maybe it’s time the analysts show some love to the Southeast Division.
