Will Jeff Green finally start tomorrow?
« on: February 10, 2013, 09:30:41 PM »
Paul and KG have to be gassed, and we play another game tomorrow against a pretty crummy team in the Bobcats.

I think it makes a lot of sense to start Green and possibly Collins tomorrow to have KG and Pierce play limited (<20) minutes off the bench. A nice side effect would be to see what Green can do as a starter.

Thoughts?

If you're going to give them a break then give them a break. Don't play them at all.

I'd just give Pierce and KG the night off.

This is where we need a third string wing and a center.

If Pierce and KG don't play, at least Charlotte is a good match up size-wise.  They often play three small guards, Ben Gordon, Sessions and Walker together.  They don't really have a legitimate-sized small forward on their roster besides Kidd-Gilchrist.

This. There is absolutely no need for them to play tomorrow night.

I'd be extremely surprised if either KG or Pierce are given the night off.  Doc just doesn't do that.  At least not until April.

Whether they should get the night off is another matter.  I'd be inclined to give KG the night off completely, and have Pierce on a strict minutes restriction.

Hopefully they can run the Bobcats out of their own building, which is always the best way to limit the minutes for your starters.

Barbosa is too small for a 3. I'd rather have Lee play that position.

There seems to be two options: 1) sit PP and KG, or 2) play PP and KG. I don't see why you would change your starting line-up if they are going to play. Keep things the same and play them less. What does starting a different set of guys solve if you are playing them anyway?

Actually, tomorrows game is one that is historically frightening for the PP/KG era. We have played down to our competition consistently in this time period. I could see tomorrow's game being very close, which may force those guys to play big minutes in the fourth quarter to try and get the win.

It's a shame our 3rd best player plays the same position as our 2nd best player.  But that's been an issue all year... as of right now we are making it work.  Jeff Green is clearly better than Brandon Bass, but Jeff Green isn't a PF.
