2. Keon Ellis, Malik Monk, Kevin Huerter, Harrison Barnes, Domantas Sabonis

Worth a total of only 14 possessions played, we have not seen this lineup a lot, but over that stretch, it has been effective. This group outscores opponents by an average of 88.4 points per 100 possessions, averaging an efficient field goal percentage of 65.6 percent. 

On one hand, that is not a huge surprise because the lineup features three starters and Monk, who is the Kings’ sixth man. Scoring-wise, they shouldn't have any problems. 

Defensively, however, this lineup does not look like it would stop anyone. Ellis is active defending guards, Huerter has good size, and Barnes is experienced, but this lineup does not feature a real defensive threat. 

With Fox, Murray, or Kessler Edwards somewhere in there, it would look a little different, which is probably why this lineup hasn’t been utilized more. Nevertheless, it is an interesting combination we might see some more off if matchups allow it.
