Davis - Dwight
LeBron - Melo
THT - Reaves
Ellington - Monk
Nunn - Westbrook
is a passable rotation.
True, and to be clear, I don't want THT traded, I don't think he's a problem... In fact, like I said during the game, I think the offense works a lot better with him in the lineup and sharing distribution duties with Westbrook. Westbrook can't seem to figure out how to get AD the ball in scoring positions other than as a jump shooter, THT isn't perfect at it yet, but he's more able to get AD the ball in the paint... Maybe because THT is so good at breaking down the defense in the paint? IDK... But the flow seems better with THT than without, and the defense is way better...
But you have to ask yourself why a guy on his second game back from an injury break, still wearing a splint or brace on his hand, is getting 37 min in a game like this and being told to shoot the ball every time he touches it?
(best 3pt shooter)
Is a solid lineup... If we get Ariza back and he can still hit 3s at a relatively high clip while playing the D he's been playing, he'd be our best option at stretch forward next to THT and Nunn or Westbrook.
