The Jazz starting lineup this year of Trey Burke, Richard Jefferson, Gordon Hayward, Marvin Williams and Derrick Favors has been positive over 520 minutes on the floor. This is really surprising for a team that is 22-43. This lineup’s offensive rating is 107.3 and its defensive rating is 106.5.
However, two other often-used lineups for the Jazz are crazy positive. The third most-used lineup (121 minutes) by the Jazz this season is Garrett, Burks, Hayward, Evans and Kanter. This group is +8.8 per 100 possessions. Its offensive rating is 110.3 and its defensive rating is 101.4. Both of those numbers are elite. This lineup has shot the ball really well, with an EFG% of 54.5%. Defensively, they have forced a lot of turnovers—17% of possessions. The Jazz as a team is at just 12.5% for the season.
Utah’s fourth most-used lineup (117 minutes) of Burke, Burks, Hayward, Marvin and Favors has been equally as good. The offensive rating is 107.3 but the defensive rating is a great 99.8. This lineup has been good on the offensive glass and shoots 52.5% in EFG%. Defensively, they have held people to a 45.6% EFG%. They have been awesome on the defensive glass at 78.2% but have also fouled at a high rate.
These two lineups are the 27th and 32nd best of any five-man groups in the NBA that have played at least 100 minutes.
