By John Hollander ESPN Staff Writer When it comes to sports, it can be hard to find the perfect team.
So how do we know which team is really better?
We can compare the teams playing in the same conference to determine which team has the better team spirit, a great coach, and a deep bench.
The NBA is a team sport, but we can use that to our advantage.
Here’s what we looked at this season and how we rate each team based on those criteria.
Memphis Grizzlies Memphis is the Memphis Grizzlies.
The Grizzlies are the reigning Eastern Conference champions, winning three straight titles.
They’re led by two superstars in Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph.
But they’re also led by one of the worst frontcourts in the league, a team that plays with a chip on its shoulder.
Memphis is ranked 22nd in Defensive Real Plus-Minus and 28th in Offensive Real Plus/Minus.
The team has played its way to the top of the Eastern Conference this season, and that success has led to the Grizzlies’ continued success.
Memphis also has some of the best players in the Eastern conference, and has a young core that should help them continue their ascent to the playoffs.
They’ve earned a playoff spot this season thanks to their record and their record against the Warriors, Clippers, and 76ers.
The next season will be interesting, because the Grizzlies are currently battling for the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference, and have the chance to be one of four teams in that conference to reach the conference finals.
But we need to remember that this is a playoff-bound team, and it will be up to the rest of the conference to keep Memphis out of the playoffs and earn a playoff berth.
Washington Wizards Washington has been the No .2 seed for most of the season, but the Wizards have been inconsistent in the playoffs, and now they’re headed to the conference semifinals.
They have a solid roster that has some very good players, and they’re led in a lot of key areas.
The Wizards are also ranked 23rd in Defensive Rating and 23rd Offensive Rating.
The best part about the Wizards?
Their young core of Otto Porter Jr. and Bradley Beal are going to help them win a lot this season.
Washington is a young team with a lot to prove, but if it can make the playoffs in this new era of the NBA, it could be a contender.
Indiana Pacers The Pacers are a team with three great players and a young roster.
They could be one to watch in the postseason, especially if they can avoid a conference final.
But the Pacers are also a team whose team spirit is the least of their problems.
They were ranked 29th in Defensive Ratings and 28.9 points per 100 possessions in the first half of the 2016-17 season, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
They don’t have the talent, but they’re young, and don’t seem to have any glaring weaknesses.
Portland Trail Blazers The Trail Blazers have won seven of their last nine games, and are one of three teams that have won at least 15 games for the first time in five of their seven seasons.
But a lot has changed for the Trail Blazers over the past three years, and their roster has also changed.
Portland is ranked 21st in Defensive Ranks, 29th Defensive Real Rating, and 27th Offensive Real Rating.
Damian Lillard is a very good player and has earned All-NBA accolades.
They also have a young, talented core that will help them compete for a playoff playoff spot in the East.
The Trail, who has not made the playoffs since 2012-13, could have a good shot at winning the East this season as long as they don’t let teams like the Spurs and Clippers get them.
Houston Rockets Houston is a great team that has improved drastically in recent years, but has also been struggling in the last few seasons.
The Rockets have been a bottom-feeder over the years, losing to the Clippers, Celtics, Spurs, and Warriors in consecutive seasons.
Their roster has not been great, but this year they have a lot more young talent, and this could help them improve.
Portland Mavericks Mavericks The Mavericks have been one of those teams that has really changed over the last two seasons.
They went from being one of five teams to make the Finals in 2017-18, to finishing outside the top 10 last season.
Dirk Nowitzki is the most dominant player in the game, and he should continue to dominate this season with a new contract that will pay him a lot.
Dallas is also a young and talented team, led by DeMarcus Cousins.
They’ll be a team to watch if they have another run at the playoffs this season — they’re a good team that could still have a great chance to win the
