    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.

    Is Burks great because he only gets minutes when he is playing well?

    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.

    So what stats did Locke cherrypick to come up with this information?

    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: https://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.)

    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.

    Yeah, the Rockets basically outscored the Jazz by 1ppm last night.

    Any idea what team(s) those minutes were against and in what context?

    I can't find evidence that this lineup has ever been tried.
    Burks page that highlights lineups he is used in:
    https://www.82games.com/1213/12UTA7.HTM
    Burks and Foye units together account for 40 min and are +24.

    It's interesting that Mo only makes one appearance. The >300 min data also showcases Hayward's value.

    Locke and his numbers makes me laugh. It's like his idea that you can tell how good someone is going to be by their third year.

    yeah, that was a really frustrating listen. locke's tone is pretty patronising when dealing with anything querying ty's or the front offices' decision-making.
