What can we learn from combing through the Warriors early-season lineups?

The Golden State Warriors have only played five games. There are 77 more to go. It’s a bit too early for any grand proclamations.

The Dubs lineups have been ... interesting. They’ve been openly toeing the line between playing the win-now lineups and the win-later lineups.

It’s an understandable strategy, but it’s made for some borderline unwatchable second units.

They’ve already abandoned the strategy, or at least modified it. Jonathan Kuminga’s been cut out of the rotation (for now).

James Wiseman’s minutes have decreased (for now). Moses Moody’s have increased (for now), and so have the roles for the veterans.

It’s helped, as that rotation change played a huge role in the team’s 123-110 win over the Miami Heat on Thursday.

So let’s jump into it a little bit by looking at the lineup data to see what teammate combinations are playing the best to start the year.

The five best two-man lineups (minimum 30 minutes) 1. Steph Curry and Kevon Looney (+27.8) 2. Draymond Green and Kevon Looney (+27.2) 3. Klay Thompson and Kevon Looney (+27.2) 4. Andrew Wiggins and Kevon Looney (+26.7) 5. Steph Curry and Moses Moody (+25.0)
