There is probably some truth to this. I think a big part of it is that team defensive rating is heavily dependent on opponent 3 point percentage, which has a very high variance. I think somebody already posted the wild differences in opponent 3 point percentage between our wins and losses. The reality is that this is probably too small a sample to read much into the defensive rating. With smaller samples, you need to look at more targeted stats (like giving up 85% at the rim) and the eye test. Both of which suggest it was not a good idea to send Powell out there as the lone big.
