I have enjoyed the beatdowns we're giving, though.
One of the quality stats (one of their most reliable indicators, in fact) controls for strength of opponents.
Example: if team A averages 25 PPG, and we hold them to 10, we're +15. If they allow 20 PPG on average, and we score 24 on them, we're +4. It's actually pretty hard to gain many points in this category against bad teams, but we're still leading the league.
