    Default Mickael Pietrus.

    This guy is definitely a keeper. Great defense tonight, offensively didn't force anything. Plus the lineup of Calderon, Ross, Pietrus, Davis, Johnson looked extremely good.

    After not playing in any game since last spring, don't get too worried with him missing those looks, because those are definitely his shots, just trying to get his legs under him. Hit a couple of big shots during some quiet stretches.

    I agree, I still feel if Landry comes back to his regular shooting form, plays AT LEAST like he did in pre-season, we'll get some really good minutes out of him. I still expect him to be the starter.

    I'm cautiously optimistic about that. Hoping his return doesn't cut back on TRoss's minutes too much, I like what he's shown in the last few games. Seems to me like you've got six wings all capable of starting when healthy (emphasize capable, not deserving). I'd say trade some of that depth for other positions, but most almost every position has depth. Maybe its time to package depth for a player with more impact??

    Real competition for minutes at that spot will be positive. Perhaps ross and Landry can get some minutes at 2 also. kyle and Jose playing pg and sg does not work over extended minutes.

    Played some good defense tonight and the shots will come with time.
    Also, we've never lost with him in the line-up. #justsaying

    Who noticed that calm composure that only comes from a serious vet. This guy can be great for our team, and especially down the stretch, can give these young guys a reason to settle down.

    Dwane Casey got something he wanted in this signing, he loves his vets I expect to see Pietrus clocking quite a few minutes if Klieza or Fields struggle on the court in future games. Mcguire who????

    He had a poor game offensively, and yet he seemed to bring a level of composure to the team that has been sorely lacking. Hopefully it continues. Pietrus has always been one of my favourite players.

    He looked good by not making as many mistakes as the other sf's do. His experience should prove valuable.

    I think Pietrus can be a regular in the rotation and should start until Fields comes back. It was nice to have a capable 3 point shooter on the floor and also to have a solid defender. He isn't the athlete he once was but he still have great hands and he's a very good team defender. 4 man rotation at the wing of Demar, Ross, Pietrus and Fields is fine until we can get a real long term SF.
