Josh Martin of Bleacher Report ranked every starting lineup in the NBA after the trade deadline and the Utah Jazz came in at No. 17.
After talking about the return of Rodney Hood, Martin wrote, "Not that the Jazz have set the landscape ablaze with Hood at shooting guard. According to NBA.com, they've been outscored by 4.7 points per 100 possessions with the above arrangement but have obliterated the opposition by 22.2 points per 100 possessions when Joe Ingles gets the call."
Martin then talks about the success the Jazz have had with Ingles as a starter, saying, "Perhaps Quin Snyder will take it as a sign that he should keep the sharpshooting Australian out there to stretch the floor (43.9 percent from three) for a slasher like All-Star Gordon Hayward and the paint-packing pair of Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert."

During that time, the Cougars have given up 21.2 points a game, including 19.5 points in 2016 under first-year coach Kalani Sitake. The Cougars best year during that stretch came in 2012 when they ranked third in the nation after giving up just 14 points a game, according to Sports-reference.com.
Alabama landed at the No. 1 spot with Wisconsin, Florida, Florida State and Stanford rounding out the top five.
