Default Re: Season of the tank!-2013-14 regular season

Entering the game, the Jazz’s new-look starting lineup of Burke/Hayward/Jefferson/Williams/Favors had gone 5-2 when together as a cohesive whole. Indeed, the lineup is now the Jazz’s most commonly used, and it’s one of just 3 of the top 10 most played lineups that are a positive when they’re on the floor. They are:

Notice a common thread? All three lineups have the Gordon Hayward, Marvin Williams, and Derrick Favors trifecta, which seems to provide a nice balance between defensive ability and floor spacing on offense. Trey Burke generally provides additional playmaking and shooting, and Jefferson either provides shooting or Burks provides slashing.

It shows me that Burke is getting way too much credit. Looks like the difference has been Marvin as sad as that is! The past couple games It's been Evans outplaying Marvin. Might have to see if they can play them together at times.
