So I wonder if we're going to start seeing less and less of Rozier as the playoffs near and the rotation tightens. Brad today said that the playoff rotation will largely consist of the starting five and Smart playing big minutes. Add Brown and KO in there for 10-15 minutes a game apiece and that's probably the entire playoff rotation.

I still love the Smart/Bradley backcourt pairing, even if they struggle at times to score.

I like watching INdy and Boston

REAL basketball

Bird makes hi s teams play team ball, with plays , defense and all the little things I like to see.

Sounds good to me. Unlike last year, as long as we stay healthy I like our chances at potentially a deep playoff run.

My gut tells me Brown will have a bigger impact though and make some great plays. But sounds about good.

No Rozier so far....I will stomach minutes for GodZeller if this is what takes. Zeller has also played fine when needed.

No Rozier sounds wonderful. Keeping one of Smart, Horford, or Thomas on the floor at all times should be enough to keep the offense going and logistically, it should be possible.

Can we all take a minute and thank Danny for not biting on the "2017 Nets Pick + 3 of Smart/Brown/Crowder/Bradley" proposal for Paul George.

I'd trade for him in a heartbeat but that is clearly an overpayment.  Disgusting.

Yeah, it certainly seems like Brad is starting to shorten up the rotation to get guys used to it before the playoffs. I like it. We've had enough injuries that our players are plenty rested.

Great to see Al starting to come back on after a long slump right in time for the playoffs.

I wouldn't anymore. He pretty much said he's Lakers-bound after 2018.

No need to give up assets for an expiring this summer.
