(All data again excluding China/Venezuela games)
Some 2-man combos :
Mills + Lisch = -27 from 70 possessions (-38.6/100)
Delly + Lisch = +11/41 (+26.8/100)
Delly + Mills = +32/192 (+16.7/100)
Martin + Mills = +10/58 (+17.2/100)
Martin + Delly = +2/3
Based on this data, it appears Lisch really struggled combining with Mills. This fits with my recollection of Lisch really struggling to initiate and run the offense. Once combined with Delly, Lisch lineups work better. Which made me wonder how Mills-lineups fared without Delly as floor general:
Mills on with Delly: +40/239 (+16.7/100)
Mills on without Delly: -30/85 (-35.3/100)
Without Delly as floor general, Mills-lineups struggle. This consolidates the viewpoint that we have held for a long time: Mills is not a PG. While Mills can put up points as a PG, but I'd argue that his team performs much better when he plays SG. The figures of Mills without Delly could be the result of the bench replacements dragging the +/- down, so let's do the same for Delly to see the contrast, to see how Delly fares with benchies.
Delly on with Mills: +40/239 (+16.7/100)
Delly on without Mills: +16/63 (+25.3/100)
No issues for Delly there. Delly is clearly the best floor general we have. Without him, the offense struggles. Delly's offensive rating was a blistering 149 (which was better than any main rotation team USA player, by the way).
Some other 2-man lineups:
Andersen + Bogut: +12/86 (+14/100)
Andersen + Baynes: +22/81 (+27.2/100)
Andersen + Bairstow: -8/25 (-32.0/100)
Curious to see Andersen actually seem to combine better with Baynes.
Isolating players at a position:
Ingles at SF: +13/261 (+5.0/100)
Broekhoff at SF: +24/117 (+20.5/100)
Although Broekhoff's shot was a bit off, Broekhoff was actually looking for his shot. When he is shooting well, the team looks so much more dangerous. Broekhoff plays good D and competently executes the offense, so I'm not so surprised by his effect on the team. Although I can see the benefit of Broekhoff providing firepower off the bench, the most potent backcourt lineup (Delly-Mills-Broekhoff) seems to have been seldom used:
Delly-Mills-Broekhoff: +20/49 (+40.8/100)
Delly-Mills-Ingles: +5/135 (+3.7/100)
My perception was that the Delly-Mills-Broekhoff combination seemed the most potent combination in 2014, too.
Baynes at PF: +12/101 (+11.9/100)
Andersen: +24/201 (+11.9/100)
Motum: -2/36 (-5.6/100)
Bairstow: +3/63 (+4.8/100)
Re: Motum, I believe this data doesn't include the Spain game.
Bogut at C: +32/238 (+13.4/100)
Bogut at C (without Baynes on): +20/137 (+14.6/100)
No Bogut at C: -4/192 (-2.1/100)
Baynes at C: +17/143 (+11.9/100)
No Bogut/Baynes: -21/49 (-42.9/100)
Andersen at C: -15/37 (-40.5/100) *(note: only played C with Bairstow, Motum and Broekhoff at PF)
Lineups with either Bogut or Baynes at C were respectable. Any lineup without either Bogut or Baynes at C really struggled. Not surprising. Although that might have been when Lemanis was desperately experimenting with lineup combinations in the Serbia SF.
