I know it's a small sample size, but despite their 1-3 record, the Pels are pretty much middle of the back in terms of team scoring, points allowed, FG%, 3P shooting and other basic measurables. But the advanced stats show some worrisome early issues:

-Pels rank 27th in the league in Defensive Rebounding %. Seems inexcusable with Davis and DeMarcus on the front line;

-Pels rank 26th in the league in giving up Second Chance baskets to opponents. See above;

-Pels rank 27th in the league in Assist-to-Turnover Ratio. Way too sloppy with the ball and playing to much isolation;

-Pels rank 27th in the league in giving up points to opponents' Fast Break opportunities. We aren't getting back on defense, which may be in part due to increased emphasis on Offensive Rebounding (Pels are 10th in ORB%).

Just some early nuggets...
