Pelicans' lineup management

Post by Crow » Sat Nov 17, 2018 11:44 pm

Top 8 lineups, all positive, mostly very strong. Average performance of these lineups: plus 21.6 points per 100 possessions. But... barely used for 1/3 of total minutes.

What does Gentry do with the rest? Dink, dink, dink. And incredibly poorly. On average -13.2 points / 100p.

CONCENTRATE on strong most used lineups. SHARPLY REDUCE THE DINKING. Or stay meh doing what you are doing.

In yesterday's win over Nuggets, Gentry used 5 lineups for 32 minutes that went plus 7. That is more than twice the amount he has played his 5 most used lineups on average. It worked.
