    Or are the Hawks a trash team? Or is it because CJ didn't play?

    Why not both? Hawks are a trash team that was without Reddish, Gallo and Bogdanovic and CJ wasn’t there to be a defensive sieve.

    We gave up 65% more points in the half CJ played (66 vs 40).
    I don't think that is a coincidence.

    they can play stretches of passable defense, not elite. But the coaches don't seem to understand that if you want to be a good defensive team you have to actually, you know, play defense.

    But I'm not sure I'd put much weight into their stats against other shitty teams.
