Thread title says it all.

If it was my call, I'd go with Antoine Wright. Defensively, he's our best option vs. D-Wade. This would also allow Marco/Sonny to continue to come off the bench and contribute energy/offense to the 2nd unit.

Antoine Wright, he's the vet. Let Marco stay in his off the bench instant offense role. Weems lacks the experience

Wright, because he has the most experience and was likely expected to log decent minutes against Wade. He's also bigger than Belinelli and can be relied on to assist defending Beasley if he goes off tonight.

weems, because he's basically the same as DD... someone has to step up off the bench though to replace a missing weems..

I'd choose antoine Wright because he is out best wing stopper. And plus, taking Belinelli out of the 2nd unit takes out a lot of their offense

Jose

Gonna need a 2 PG setup to counter the very quick Chalmers and Wade.

Weems. He brings a lot of the same things as DD to the starting lineup.

I would say Beli, but I really like what he is bringing off the bench. We need that extra scoring power there.

Sonny to play the same minutes DeMar does, we have Wright to come in if necessary for all other purposes... and Beli needs to remain off the bench

Marco has been playing the best as of late, give him the start but if he **** up the flow put in Wright.

My thinking is Jose is used to dealing with PGs and I see Wade as a PG not a SG because of Wade's handle and quickness. Wade has size on Jose but that is mainly useful if Wade posts up Jose which the Raptor D would switch on anyways or if wade shoots over Jose which takes away from Wade's driving game. Forcing Wade to shoot is better than a slow Wright or Weems giving Wade many driving attempts. Wade also is a play maker similar to a PG on his drive and dish so Jose who is used to covering PGs may be the best fit to cover Wade.

Banks could also work instead of Jose on D but at least Jose could give the Raps a threat from 3 on O.

Absolutely has to be Marco. There's a possibility this guy is actually a decent player, when given enough minutes. We need to ride him as much as possible when we get the chance. Sometimes injuries are a good thing, because you get to see what you have with other players. We don't need to see anything with Wright. And between Marco and Sonny, Marco has more potential.

Belinelli. The Heat allow their opponents to shoot 36% from deep, so you need Belinelli's ability to shoot the 3 on the floor.

I'd like Marco to start, especially since he's been playing well the last few games. If he starts flopping his shot, then put Weems/Wright in.

Belli won't be getting shots with Bosh/Bargs/Hedo/Jack on the floor. His best fit is the number one option off the bench. & Weems is undisciplined, he'll come in the game and dash up a shot on the first look he gets with 20 secs on the shotclock

Wright will man up to D-Wade and not demand shots.

Weems shot selection would hopefully have less of an impact if he's the fifth option playing with the starters... he slots right into the role Demar used to have, isn't as much of an offensive liability as Wright, and doesn't mess up our bench rotation because he hasn't played in the last few games anyway.

Out of the three I think he has the most to prove, but that can be a good thing

I think it should be Marco as well. Lately he's been getting a lot of minutes with our key guys out there in crunch time and he has been producing well, and playing smarter (i.e. taking it inside if his jumper isn't falling, making plays for teammates off the drive, and drawing fouls). I think he plays some good active perimeter D, and seems to play much peskier defense against star wings. If his shot is falling early, he can really help our spacing, since defenders won't be able to cheat off him like they do with DeMar.
