Game 1 is in the books and it was a classic thrilling win for us (T-Roz, then "Kate" Middleton! then OT!). However I wonder are we currently better on the floor or at the bench/hospital.
I included Semi in the latter lineup, a rookie wing to complete the five.

Note: Brad is coaching both teams :)

I assume the opposition is more ECF / Finals type competition? If so you can't go past the KI/Hayward one.

You need the elite offence that these two provide, and surrounded with 1 elite defender, 1 good defender (Theis) and a solid defender in Semi, two of whom are serviceable shooters.

I thought any "must-win" game, versus, not necessary ECF one. It can be a regular season game that we badly need or a 1st round match.

I was torn between the two choices, but I voted in the same manner.
That top heavy talent made the difference.
Even though, the recency bias was strong in me.
