It's playoff time. Every possession counts from here on out, so you had better know who on your team can help you put points on the board, and who can prevent your opponent from doing the same.
With the intensity of the action about to go up several levels, coaches need as much information as they can get. So there's no better time to use the data that has been gathered over the last six months. Unless you're Mike Brown, Nate McMillan or Scott Skiles, the time for experimenting with your lineups is over. If you want to shorten your rotation, you need to know which lineups work best together.
With the help of StatsCube, we put together the best five-man units, with a minimum of 100 minutes together, among playoff teams.
