It's been an interesting opening few weeks of the 2017-18 season.
The Boston Celtics have strung together five straight wins following an 0-2 start, after losing prized acquisition Gordon Hayward for the year just six minutes into their season opener. The Detroit Pistons and Orlando Magic are off to surprising starts. Giannis Antetokounmpo has stormed to the front of MVP talk. All the while, traditional heavyweights like the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors have looked uncharacteristically mortal.
Which teams have been the most surprising and disappointing? Which rookie has looked the best so far? And is anyone else on the Greek Freak's level right now?
Reigning MVP Russell Westbrook will square off with Antetokounmpo when the Milwaukee Bucks host the Oklahoma City Thunder at 8 p.m. Tuesday night.
