Why make a change in the starting line-up when the young guys are playing so well? If anything, most coaches in the play-offs shorten their rotation not increase it to 10 players. At any rate, it didn't work: Howard was terrible!

Four rebounds doesn't make up for awful shooting, multiple bad passes that led to turnovers and coming up short on fifty fifty balls. Meanwhile Caroll had 7 points and much better production.

this shows that Corbin is still a rookie coach...you are in the playoffs...and you decided to tinker the lineup because you are afraid one of your vets might get a hissy fit for not playing...he should've left it as is...we've wont a few games straight with that line up...so dont fix something that isnt broken

Corbin shouldn't last too long making these kind of decisions. Corbin cares about veteran loyalties more than winning. What a let down after the momentum we had going into the playoffs. Corbin has jerked the rug right out from under us and taken away the momentum these guys worked so hard to achieve. What a dumb move to pull Carroll out of the starting lineup. Good grief Corbin, whats up with that?
