    Interesting Locke stats

    Since I want to talk about anything but the game last night, here are some really interesting stats from Locke about the best and worst 2 and 3 man groups.
    Guess who's name is at the top of the 'best of' list and who is the bottom of the 'worst of' list.

    3 BEST 2 MAN GROUPS
    1. Alec Burks/Paul Millsap
    2. Alec Burks/Al Jefferson
    3. Gordon Hayward/Jamaal Tinsley

    3 WORST 2 MAN GROUPS
    1. Earl Watson/ Gordon Hayward
    2. Earl Watson/Derrick Favors
    3. Alec Burks/Derrick Favors

    3 BEST OFFENSIVE 2 MAN GROUPS
    1. Alec Burks/Al Jefferson
    2. Alec Burks/Paul Millsap
    3. Alec Burks/Randy Foye
    Note: This is really one 5 man group that has played well with Gordon Hayward as well.

    3 WORST OFFENSIVE 2 MAN GROUPS
    1. Alec Burks/Derrick Favors
    2. Earl Watson/Derrick Favors
    3. Earl Watson/Gordon Hayward

    3 BEST DEFENSVIE 2 MAN GROUPS
    1. Alec Burks/Paul Millsap
    2. DeMarre Carroll/Enes Kanter
    3. Jamaal Tinsley/Gordon Hayward

    3 WORST DEFENSIVE 2 MAN GROUPS
    1. Earl Watson/Al Jefferson
    2. Derrick Favors/Al Jefferson
    3. Mo Williams/Derrick Favors
    4. Randy Foye/Gordon Hayward

    Here are a few other notes. Looking at just the top 30 most used 2 man groups all having played at least 300 minutes together might have more of a signal and less noise

    BEST OVERALL Tinsley/Hawyard then Carroll/Kanter then Gordon/Marvin tied with Carroll/Hayward
    WORST OVERALL: Watson/Hayward and Watson/Favors
    BEST OFFENSE: Tinsley/Hayward then Hayward/Jefferson and Hayward/Milsap
    WORST OFFENSE: Watson/Favors and Watson Hayward then Hayward/Favors
    BEST DEFENSE: Carroll/Kanter and Tinsley/Hayward then Hayward/Kanter
    WORST DEFENSE: Favors/Jefferson then Mo/Foye and Foye/Jefferson

    Is Burks great because he only gets minutes when he is playing well?
    Build a man a fire; keep him warm for a day. Light a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of this life.

    Repeating the same actions and expecting different results is the definition of insanity.

    I, HeavenHarris, hereby pledge to my fellow JFC'rs that I will no longer give out neg-reps. All it does is cause negative things, like fights, drama, bitching, ill will, bad feelings, etc.
    Love, not hate, is the answer bros and moes.

    LOL Lol breaks his pledge 5 days later hahahaha

    Burks does have a small sample size. Good job Dutch, you're smarter than Locke.

    TipOff is interesting too.
    I know Locke can't outright say that Corbin is a bad coach if he believes it but TipOff today was as close to him saying coach made a bad move as it has been all year.
    The bad move was Foye on Harden.

    Just listen to Locke talk with DJ and PK and you'll see he's a stupid homer. Talks about how Golden State is the same as Utah in terms of building a team. But then says Golden State has Steph Curry, and that's why they're better. Holy **** Steph Curry wouldn't play if Ty had him.

    One of the most solid (and fun to watch) lineups the Jazz ran this year was Burks, Foye, Jefferson, Millsap and Hayward. Too bad they just ran it for a couple games.

    That's lineup #20 on this site: http://www.82games.com/1213/1213UTA2.HTM

    They have only run it for 19.6 total minutes all season. But they outscored the opponents by a whopping 26 pts in those 19.6 minutes. (Outscoring your opponent by more than a pt per minute is phenomenal.)
    "Giving to the poor is an essential part of Christian morality. I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give. Im afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare... If our charities do not at all pinch or hamper us, I should say they are too small. There ought to be things that wed like to do but cannot do because our charitable expenditure excludes them." --C.S. Lewis

    How about Burks, Foye, Hayward, Jefferson, Favors? Does that lineup work as well?

    Perhaps, but I noticed that Watson was mentioned frequently on the "worst" pairings and never on the "best" pairings -- which certainly backs my observations of Watson.

    I believe that Watson is the reason Kanter can't get minutes, because Corbin judges Kanter's play by how well the "bench" is doing and Watson drags everyone down.

    This. Sadly, ball is not played two-on-two and Burks does not receive any sort of meaningful minutes for me to deduce **** from this. And that's what all this is. A pile of deuce.
