4. Small Ball – Kyrie Irving, Iman Shumpert, James Jones, LeBron James, Timofey Mozgov

If you want to space the floor and increase the pace of the game, this may be the lineup to do it with. These five guys provide ball handling, mid- and long-range shooting, speed, and rim protection. The weakness that this lineup could present is rebounding and post defense, although their speed should allow for quick rotations out of a double team, if needed. This lineup would have to be utilized situationally, and not likely for extended periods of time. Each of our potential opponents, Chicago and Milwaukee, have lineups that would enable James Jones to be hidden on the defensive end by matching him up with a spot up shooter, but those matchups wouldn’t likely last very long. Look for Coach Blatt to go small with LeBron at the 4 spot, surrounded by shooters, for very important stretched of the next series.
