    #4 In a game-by-game setting it's pretty much pointless. It only becomes an issue when trends emerge. Basically in a game setting it helps you establish a sense of a recap trough the boxscore and little else.
    Our Bench plays long periods of time. Other teams they mix it up much more. Our bench does play starters also.

    To me I see it as Jefferson being the main problem Along with Foye. But the current combination of starters is not working is what these stats show me. The rest can be debated both ways. But no way anyone can argue that the current combination of starters is working well.

    +/- is completely reliable. Plus or minus infinity reliabilities.
