NBA Team results post timeout -- coach ratings? from 82games.com

82games.com tries to rank coaches by looking at playcalling coming directly out of timeouts.

I'm not sure what to make of this list. Coming out of timeouts, Orlando on offense has the 9th best performance. On defense they are tenth. Overall they are rated 6th.

Then again, 5 of the 10 best offenses coming out of timeouts did not make the playoffs. 2 of ten defenses didn't make the playoffs. Overall, 3 of the ten best including Orlando did not make the playoffs, including Boston.

    Interesting numbers and analysis in the article.

    Like the article said, the defensive numbers coming out of timeouts means a lot more than the offensive numbers, considering that 8 of the top 10 defensive teams coming out of timeouts made the playoffs, while only 5 of the top 10 offensive teams coming out of timeouts made the playoffs.

    Because the Magic were in the top 10 in both categories, does this mean that Brian Hill is a genius? Of course not, as we all have documented his weaknesses, especially for the first 60 games of the season. But since they're rated 6th overall, maybe Hill is not as bad a strategist during games as we may have previously thought.
