NBA: Western Conference early season review
Nearly a week into the 2012-2013 NBA regular season, lets take a look at the Western Conference.
The Los Angeles Lakers got off to a slow start, just picking up their first victory in their fourth game on Sunday night. Steve Nash is out with a knee injury and will probably be sidelined for a few more weeks. That being said, this team is far too talented and once more chemistry develops and the club starts to get a hang of the Princeton Offense, they should take off and become the team that many expect them to become.
The defending Western Conference champion, Oklahoma City Thunder, fresh off of trading James Harden, are also having a bit of a chemistry loll. Again, like the Lakers, they will pick up their game and most likely we will see these two clubs not only near, or at the top of the West during the regular season, but also as favorites to make it to the NBA finals.
The San Antonio Spurs are the only remaining undefeated team in the Western Conference at 3-0, thus far.
The Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings are the only remaining winless clubs thus far out west, both with 0-3 records. The Nuggets will put it together and without a doubt as the season goes on, they will show that they are not only a playoff team, but perhaps will fight for home court advantage out west in the first round.
