Moreover, the Bucks are 3.3 points per 100 possessions better than the second-best defense in the league (the Raptors). That differential is the second largest in league history, behind only the gap between the 1992-93 Knicks and second-place SuperSonics (5.2 points).
As in last season, when the Bucks also led the league in defensive rating—albeit with a less impressive mark of 105.2—this overperformance flows from a singular focus on controlling the area near the basket. The best at-rim defender this season, as measured by opposing field goal percentage, is Giannis Antetokounmpo (41.9 percent). The second best is Brook Lopez (46.0). The third best is Robin Lopez (46.4).
To be clear: Those three players aren’t just the best on the Bucks. They’re the three best at-rim defenders in the NBA.
