Well, there's plenty to take from the loss, but I'm not sure how the plus/minus stuff fits in. The small lineup didn't end up with strong numbers, and I'm not sure what to make of Smith's numbers, because I didn't think he played particularly well when he was in there. The one important thing to remember is that four guys played 30-plus minutes, and Henderson played 29, so they will reflect most of what happened in the game. Anyway, on to the stats...

Interesting that after the 6:02 timeout, when the game hung in the balance and it was time to put all the chips on the table, K used this lineup for the entire rest of the way, except for a brief appearance by Lance to give G a rest.

My sense is that in crunch time, K's tendency is to put on the floor the five best basketball players, rather than trying to go for some particular perceived match-up on height or otherwise against the opposing team. I would have used the same line-up, but statistically it turned out to be the worst.

Yeah, it's strange. That lineup has been awesome for us all year. Even stranger, K had moved away from that lineup in recent games. He actually addressed it in a roundabout way in his press conference.

Coach K: "With (Ty) Lawson back, (Carolina has) started playing four smalls now, with (Danny) Green at the four. Itís real tough to put two bigs in there against that. Green played really well and he was a difference maker tonight."
