That's definitely the best lineup, outscoring opponents 105.2-93.6 per 100 possessions in the 34 minutes they've played. The original starting five is ten points worse per 100 possessions.
I hate to say it, but this lineup probably gets changed the minute Ingram comes back. A Lakers reporter/blogger mentioned that BI is Luke's boy and is likely to start. If true, Brian Shaw will probably be the interim coach in a few weeks, as Ingram is an isolation player who doesn't run the floor like Kuzma, or spot up either. Only good reason to start Ingram is if he's getting traded.
