    Yes and no. At this moment in NBA history, things are more complicated in that most teams want to be able to roll out a big lineup as well as a small-ball lineup. This necessarily means that you have to keep a variety of rotations sharp + game ready.

    Just look at Pops: he's routinely playing 13 players a night.

    My qualm lately with Casey is that he actually hasn't been playing enough players; I think he should be playing Fields more. We're going to need him to defend LBJ if we run into Miami.
    I couldn't agree more. Now is the time to see what they have at the end of the bench (Fields, De Colo, etc.) Especially since Salmons has been terrible at the end of back-to-backs; I fear the playoff grind will wear on him. It would have been nice if Fields was getting burn and gaining confidence going into the playoffs. Even with horrible shooting, I like his defense, passing, and movement off the bench.

    One aspect about Casey this year that sometimes gets overlooked is he is good at making in-game adjustments. This bodes well since teams are so heavily scouted in the playoffs. He's been the assistant on two very good teams that went to the finals (Sonics and Mavs). So he has some experience in the playoffs learning from Carlisle and Karl.

    Tonight on inside the NBA, Charles Barkley said the Raptors are going to win a round in the playoffs, and cause trouble for either the Pacers or the Heat do you agree?
    coming from probably one of the worse analysts out there.

    this is completely wrong and I don't know why this is even possible in some people's minds.

    What exactly are they going to do that we would have trouble with? If you really think about it, this is the case of people underestimating the raptors more than anything else.

    People have go to understand how high of a level we have been playing at for basically the entire season, and how well derozan and lowry have been playing.

    Even if you're not sold on us beating experienced teams like Brooklyn, who we should still beat but have the age on us, you HAVE to think that we will beat teams like charlotte and washington. They have no experience. They have less talent. and they're a worse team.

    We've got to do our part in changing the culture around this team too people!
    Except that they've beat us not once, not twice, but three times this season. They have the interior presence that we unfortunately can't match at this point, have a defence that's been able to stifle DD (thanks to MKG) and have been able to make Ross a non-factor. They've upgraded their bench now and while I do think that we've still got the better second unit, that season sweep speaks for itself.

    I don't put too much stock into what those two bozo's say, Charles seems like he's half in the bag when he's on the air and Kenny just talks too much and really says nothing of any substance ever. TNT's halftime is virtually unwatchable for me, from a pure basketball analysis perspective and the jokes they try to pull off are worse than Ron McLean's on Coaches Corner.

    Whoa I just realized something

    Maybe Casey is playing the weird rotations because he wants the nba playoff scouts to misjudge the raps and think this is how welsh. He is really saving fields and playing val and ross 20 for the playoffs. All the teams will be caught off guard because they have a completely wrong idea of what Casey plays.

    Damn if this is true Casey is a geniuses

    Wow this is awesome. So casey's plan is to insert a random Euro nation into the starting lineup? We can't lose.

    It looks like the raptors are not going to play them so there's no point in speculating and analysing both teams.

    What I will say, and what my point was, is that in a 7 game series, the best team always wins. Were better than the bobcats and Washington. I'm more than confident in saying that we would beat these teams in a 7 game series.

    If you doubt that at this point, I am saying it's more because we have a losing culture than anything else. Sometimes were more inclined to count the one or two ways we can lose instead of the multitude of ways we can win.
