Do you consider that a viable option moving forwards? I can't help but think that this 3-PG-Lineup is just one massive, massive glitch and is going to be exposed in the postseason, especially vs teams that feature good wing players. Going back all the way to 08/09 when the Thunder became the Thunder, this is the best 3-man-lineup ever amongst all those with at least 300 minutes played at +29.4 NetRtG. In these 11 seasons, which featured multiple HoF on the Thunder, just 7 lineups have reached a +20 NetRtG if you filter for those minutes:
1st: Paul|Gilgeous-Alexander|Schröder: +29.4 in 19/20
2nd: Fisher|Collison|Durant: +27.4 in 13/14
3rd: Lamb|Collison|Durant: +25.5 in 13/14
4th: Paul|Schröder|Gallinari: +23.3 in 19/20
5th: Westbrook|Morrow|Ibaka: +21.5 in 15/16
6th: Jackson|Collison|Durant: +20.0 in 13/14
6th: Fisher|Lamb|Durant: +20.0 in 13/14
I simply don't buy this performance as anything close to real. Given the roster turnover and historical performance of these PG heavy lineups under Donovan, a +5 NetRtG would have been a great success in my book.
