Some thoughts on lineups so far.

So I was just looking at NBA.com's stats, and thought I'd take a glance at the lineups the Magic have used so far this year, ten games into the season.

And they're very interesting.

For starters, the starting lineup is getting a ton of minutes together. They're the tenth most-used lineup in the entire league at 138 total minutes over 10 games.

...after that, the next most common lineup has totaled 20 minutes together over 4 games. About nine more lineups have seen ten or more minutes together this season, and then the rest of the 62 (!!) different lineups have seen single digit minutes so far this season.

It may be nothing, but it struck me as a little strange that we don't have a "go-to" lineup after our starting lineup. Or even anything close to it. Of course it is only ten games into the season, but it seems like Vaughn is very content to keep the starters intact for about 14 minutes a game and then be very creative with his bench....

...."matchups?"
