    Default GT: Soulful Jazz (@ Raps)

    Lowry down, Fields down, Anderson down according to Raps PR

    Prediction: Kleiza goes ham, if his trend against the Jazz continues.

    Jefferson and Millsap are going to slaughter us. Barg will have to unleash his inner primo if they want a chance to win. And JV will have to just play clean, no fouling!

    I like DM starting over Kleiza. The second unit needs some scoring punch and the starting unit could use the defense.

    I think I'd like Ross starting over either McGuire or Kleiza.

    Marvin Williams starts for the Jazz would be mismatch to start the game. I like starting DM too. Ross and Klieza to come out big tonight!

    I don't recall Marvin Williams ever using his size to dominate anyone. Perhaps we're giving him too much credit based on nothing more than his measurements. With Mo Williams healthy, Marvin is easily the 5th option for Utah. Tonight, he's barely above Tinsley in the pecking order (a guy who played 40 minutes on Saturday and didn't score a single point).

    M Williams, this year:

    - 1st game, vs Dallas/Marion: 29 minutes, 7/13, 5/5 FTs, 21 pts, 3 RBs, 1 STL, 1 BLK
    - In 24 minutes vs LAL/Metta WP (massive compared to Ross), 4/7, 3/3FTs, 11 pts, 4 RBs, 2 Stls
    - Last game vs Phx/Beasley, 5/10, 13 pts, 7 RBs

    All of those guys with much more experience, and MUCH more size and strength than TRoss. Put TRoss out there against Williams and Corbin will have Williams posting up every play and he'll likely be 1st or 2nd option all night.

    Look, Ross isn't built like a LeBron. He's very slight right now and the coach has to pick his spots where he throws Ross to the wolves. Kobe,,,,,, KOBE for heaven's sake, played in 2 games (14,17) over 8 minutes in his first 10, and by the end of the year, only averaged 15 minutes. Was his progress hampered by bringing him along one step at a time?

    Ross would have a tough time with Williams size agreed.

    Good comparison to Kobe's development and playing time in year one. Someone might point out that Kobe was a teenager (18 I believe) and coming out of high school while Ross is 21...

    Sorry p00ka, you'll need more than a few hand-selected boxscores to convince me that Williams is a threat on the floor (you ignored the 4 other games this year where he completely stunk). Is he bigger and stronger that Ross? Of course he is.

    Can DeRozan check Williams while Ross checks Hayward? Sure, why not?

    Nobody is suggesting that not playing Ross is somehow ruining his career. I'm simply saying that there's no reason NOT to play him, especially when the alternative is a 15th man in McGuire.

    If the Lakers were a lottery team in 1996-97, then yes, they would've been stupid not to play Kobe.

    Agreed. Feed our young players that we're trying to develop the playing time (ie: Valanciunas, Ross, Davis).

    We could play Ross at the 2 and Derozan at the 3 to start, but Utah has a very large players at the 2/3 spots in Hayward and Marvin Williams, that size may be just too much for that duo to handle.

    We lose by poor point guard play and points in the paint, Raps lose by +10.

    You're probably right.. But the Raptors are due for a random upset game. Hopefully it comes tonight with all the injuries
