For the info they're actually one of the best defensive teams in the league (better than any other contender in defensive efficiency - with the exception of Memphis), and not as good offensively as last year (still one of the best teams though). So they are actually adjusting to a more defensive style, without losing too much in the process, which if you ask me is pretty impressive.
