Coaching Utilization using before/afters



After most losses, especially playoff losses, individuals debate on how much coaching decisions factored.  For instance, after the Chicago loss a lot of discussion was started regarding Nate McMillan's benching of Nic Batum.

One perspective we could use to evaluate McMillan's decision of PT is how often he uses his most effective lineups (see Wayne Winston).  Another I imagine is to compare the yield from players before and after being coached by McMillan.  There are factors that could influence a players production  that cannot be influenced by a coach (health, age, teammates) but some can (minutes, position, lineups, pace, etc). 

So, can anyone say these players are better before/after Portland under McMillan?

The only won that seems the most who underperformed here is Frye with his new found 3 pt shot in Phoenix.  I hope that Martell and Jerryd have bright futures but I'm not holding my breath.  If anything, some of these guys were at their best while in the Blazers uniform.  What's your take?
