    The warriors will play small ball all night long,matching up will decide the game,if we're playing from behind its probably because of the same thing we saw against the hornets,the magic have no three point shooting on the floor to start games,hopefully if jameer plays tonight he can give some relief to the starters possibly keeping the score close or in our favor untill our bench players enter the game(trav,keyon)because the warriors will shoot plenty of three's.

    Big Figure, what do you think about starting Travis at 2 and move Grant to 3, so that we will have at least one shooter at the start?

    Matt,i like the idea of starting travis where ever he plays on the court,travis is good for floor spacing and dwight needs that,personally i would take carlos off the court and leave trevor at the three,carlos hasnt been helping at all,and trevor deserve's to be rewarded for his play of late,i hate to say it but carlos will probably be traded eventually,jameer is the starter and travis easily outplayed carlos,plus keyon can play point if need be so it looks like carlos is the odd man out.
