Why Corbin is the wrong coach for a developing team


The "F5" (Burke, Burks, Hayward, Kanter, Favors) was pegged by many as the starters for this squad when the year started. After 35 games, they have never started together and have played a total of just under 15 minutes over 3 games (IIRC, about half of that was during the 2nd HOU game).

I went to stats.nba.com to see how they did. Per 48 minutes, this line-up:

shoots 52.2% FG

attempts 12.7 3s, connecting on 50%

has 32.3 FTA, hitting 70%

grabs 46.0 REB

dishes 22.5 AST against 9.8 TO

gets no STL but blocks 12.7 shots (2.9 blocks against)

commits 12.7 PF while drawing 36.2 fouls

scores 107.8 points with a +/- of 19.6 (which I presume means the opponent scores 88.2)

Now, obviously we don't know which, if any, of these numbers are real/sustainable. But look at those numbers again and ponder whatever happened to our "season of discovery". So far, the main thing we've discovered is that Tyrone Corbin is not curious enough to discover what his young "hotshots" can do.
