NBA’s biggest surprise teams in the wild west

NBA insiders discuss the biggest issues in the league. Can the Jazz, Blazers and Spurs maintain their early success?

Chris Mannix: OK, Beck, this has already been a season full of surprises—and I’m not talking about Kyrie’s social media, the Lakers’ struggles, or the Minnesota dysfunction. I’m talking about Utah! And Portland! And Spurs! If you had told me weeks ago that three of the top nine in the West would be teams that I would bet big would be lotteries, I would have called you crazy. And yet here we are. But it’s a long season and we haven’t even reached Thanksgiving yet. So, can any of these teams stay in the playoffs come April?
