Arguably our best players yes?
Memo to Rambis, playoff teams play their best players at least 30 minutes+ a game! Do not make KLove ride the bench. Please do not use a 12 man rotation, it does not work. Look at the grizzlies minutes
These players got these minutes depite winning the game by 20! This is why they won. im sick of seeing rambis play koufos, pekovic, tolliver at the 4, when maybe one of them is capable at the power forward. what is wrong with playing love and tolliver together in the 4th quarter? that cost us the sacto game.
love and beasley are the teams best forwards, so use them. Dont use rookie european big men who may be suitable in the euro game playing the 4 (pekovic) who at this stage in their career in the nba will struggle. If love hits foul trouble, play beasley at his true position in the power forward slot. Dont try to make do with slow, centres who lack versatility.
When second year benchrunner wayne ellington sees the most floor time in a loss, i really question te coaching staff's decision making process. Even he only saw 29 minutes! COnsidering our bench the most ONE player sould get is 25 minutes max.
It didnt work last year so try to separate the starters from the bench players and play their minutes accordingly. A NBA 2k11model may help you here if your struggling.
The next game at miami should result in kevin love logging at least 30 minutes. Think of the production hes going to have this season if he gets those minutes. Easily 15+ boards per game.
Slide Wesley Johnson into the starting llineup for beasley this game. Then sub beasley for milicic and see how that lineup goes. The frontcourt of love and beasley should tear bosh and whoever miami want to throw up.
