    Its not that surprising. Lakers bench is god-awful, probably one of the worst in the league.

    And their down two starters to boot, so they're playing 3rd stringers off an already bad bench.

    Meanwhile, we have one of the better benches in the league.

    Lakers have one of the worst benches in the NBA, we have one of the better ones. We should be stomping them when the benches are playing each other.

    cyrone and lunatic, don't disagree but its not like the benches just play against each other and the starters just play against the starters. it gets mixed and starters are playing bench players all the time. yet the plus/minus was pretty clear.

    Sure there's a few minute overlap, but majority of the minutes they play together.

    Lakers had to play Kobe and Howard over 40 minutes each last night just to have a fighting chance. Our bench should have all been in double digits +/- against their D-League scrubs.


    p.s. Somehow, some way, this is all Jefferson and Corbin's fault. Fire^99!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111111111111111111

    JFS&G I'd like to see a hand count on everybody on JF that believe our bench would beat the starting unit.

    Starters vs. Bench
    Jefferson Kanter
    Millsap Favors
    Marvin Demarre
    Foye Hayward
    Mo Tinsley


    I say 1st team wins more than 80% of the time.

    By far the Lakers best +/- player was Hill +9 off the bench. Worst was Jamison, -17, a starter.
    The opposite is true for the Jazz. Carroll, bench, +15. Foye, starter, -9.

    Most games the bench has an advantage, but nobody knows how terrible the lakers bench is better that D'Antoni, so last night the bench played the starters a significant portion of their minutes.

    For me, it comes down to defense. I feel like the bench was better equipped to defend Kobe and Howard than the starting unit. Those two only rested 5 and 6 mins respectively. Scoring was not a problem for either team last night.
    Chop it!!!

    Mo better than tinsley
    Hayward better than foye
    Demarre better than marvin
    favors and millsap would be good matchup and i call it about even. (millsap would have a hard time scoring on favors.)
    Jefferson is probably a litte better than kanter and kanter would struggle to stop jeffy.

    It would be a pretty damn good game.
    I say each team would win about half the time.

    People have trouble coping with the fact that the Jazz bench is very deep and competent while the starters aren't top shelf. Makes it hard to say who should play and easy to want a substandard young team with hope and lottory potential over a 1st round playoff sweep.

    I give the starters the edge but only a small one. Every player on the bench brings something.
