Much of the talk around the Los Angeles Lakers lineups has been around the usage of Anthony Davis at the five. 

Davis has indeed increased his time played at the position, with Cleaning the Glass showing 70 percent of his minutes coming at the five so far in what would be a career-high mark.

Despite the bump, the Lakers are persisting with starting a traditional big, with DeAndre Jordan and Dwight Howard soaking up minutes in the rotation.

That changed against the Detroit Pistons at STAPLES Center on Sunday night, with Howard failing to see any playing time, while Jordan logged just 20 minutes as the starter.

This was partially due to a new-look Lakers lineup where LeBron James is playing as the nominal five, with head coach Frank Vogel hinting he may use the "centerless" lineup more often moving forward.
