I hope these last few games solidify once and for all that Favora and Kanter are
ready. They no longer need to be brought along slowly. Also it should solidify
that Al is taking away more defensively than he adds offensively. It should. Be
clear as well the Millsap is the keeper. He matches up with the stretch four and
pulling Favors or Kanter away from the hoop defensively takes away an advantage.
Finally, Watson, Tinsley, Marvin should all be bit players at best.
We have lost more games because of them being invisible than for any other
reason. I would love to see the core 4 and Carroll starting with
Milsap foye and Mo coming off the bench.
I find myself wishing sometimes that basketball was played with 6 players.
Favors should have been in for at least some of the fourth quarter. Now we have
a situation where Mo Williams will be back at point and Burks minutes will be
cut. I'm hoping he will now get more minutes than Watson and Tinsley. I
think he has earned it.
