Reading the numbers

So far Rudy is doing quite well at the 2, terrible at PG.

Roy surprising rough start at SG but boffo at SF.

Outlaw better at PF.

Aldridge better at C.

Mattchups matter and can't up=shift against all opponents but I'd shift these guys up to the higher more often and see if the early numbers hold.

Blake-Fernandez-Roy-Outlaw-Aldridge is the 2nd best of top 10 most used lineups so far and Blake-Fernandez-Roy-Aldridge-Frye is best though of course very small samples. Too small- use them more.

Blake is stable but I wonder what woiuld happen if Sergio got a start (and didn't shoot) and Blake anchored the second unit. Might not work but I'd take an early look just to see sometime,

 

Defense is very weak right now.  A lot of fouling, not many forced turnovers and allowing fabulous outside shooting. Opponent inside game pretty well under control compared to league average on % of inside shots and inside FG%.

What does more Oden do to team defense? Does it take opponent inside game to league worst- by far? If it did that would be something but it would be even more helpful if that also allowed perimeter defenders to clamp down on outside shots and / or not foul as much. Is Oden quick enough to help defend on perimeter penetration effectively? Time will tell.
