The NBA season is a month old, and it's clear which teams need to make some adjustments in order to keep up with the top teams. Some squads just haven't found the right formula yet, and are suffering in the standings. Fortunately, there is still plenty of time for concerned coaches to tinker with their rotations and find the right group of players capable of winning big games.
And boy, do some teams really need to make adjustments.
Had I been told one month ago that the Boston Celtics would be just one game over .500 one month into the season, I would have laughed. This was the team that came within one win of the NBA Finals last season, so there was no way they could struggle that badly, right? Well, I and many other fans were certainly wrong.
It's still too early for Boston or any struggling teams to go into freak-out mode. It's a long season, and the one-month slump could just be a stumble out of the starting gate.
Still, with so many teams playing well, those teams would be wise to make a few changes, and fast.
