FanShot

Lineup Optimization: Which coaches distribute minutes so that their most productive five-man units play the most?

Somewhat similar to the last fanshot, except this article analyzes the allocation of minutes to the most productive 5 man units instead of the most productive players. However, Keith Smart did not so do in this area, coming up as 40th out of 45 coaches based on all the coaches that have worked since 2007-2008. This stat used is "the correlation between minutes played and weighted Net Rating for each unit of each team." Keith Smart has a correlation of -0.026 compared to Doc Rivers and Phil Jackson who lead the list with a correlation of 0.876 and 0.844 respectively, Another interesting thing of note is that Don Nelson comes in at 16th (mainly because of the season in 2007-2008 where he had a correlation of 0.709 compared to his next best of -0.020)
