The main thing Vaughn must fix is the rotation and defense.
It was cool to see our bubble 3rd stringers Martin/Musa/TLC/Anderson/Hall forced the Magic starters back on the floor.
The main thing was energy and defense which we lacked for most of the night.
A couple of things that I wish to see next game:
- Chiozza is a decent playmaker but the problem is he's been struggling mightly to shoot the 3 which is his main weapon on offense. I said it before but we are asking too much of him as a player. I feel as of now maybe he should come off the bench until he can gather himself and give others like TJ or Musa a shot. Musa at the very least is 6'9 and plays with energy.
- Rodi as backup C needs to end now. I don't mind it if it's vs. a favorable matchup but we got abused in the paint. The bad defense/rebouding outweights the fact he can stretch the floor as small ball 5. I think it's time for Fro/Hall center rotation going forward. Let Rodi start at PF next to the fro.
- Next game I'd like to see LeVert/Musa/Harris/Rodi/Fro, off the bench: TJ/Temple/TLC/Anderson/Hall.
I don't think Vaughn has much to work with here. LeVert, Harris, and Allen are decent starters, but not star players. TJ is a decent sub. Rodi seems to be rediscovering his game. Outside of those guys, we're scraping the bottom of the barrel.
