Article Summary:

So with the playoffs drawing closer and closer, let’s take a look at the lineups that matter most to each Eastern Conference contender, starting with the NBA’s best team.

Toronto Raptors

Most important lineup: Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet, Norman Powell, OG Anunoby, Serge Ibaka

The Raptors have survived their minutes without Pascal Siakam by relying on players you’ve never heard of.

Boston Celtics

Most important lineup: Kemba Walker, Marcus Smart, Gordon Hayward, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown

Boston is in the enviable position of having no glaring lineup weaknesses. Their starting lineup destroys opponents by 14.3 points per 100 possessions, and 10 of their 11 most used lineups have a positive net rating.
