Let Maxey tear up 2nd string guys. We need Milton in the starting lineup because nobody in the current lineup can handle the ball in the pick and roll (aside from Tobias Harris to a marginal degree).
Maxey can run the PnR relentless like Doncic and Seth can play that role he played for the Mavs with Doncic.
The offense of our starting unit is just so lethargic right now that I think we need to start Milton.
So the sixers should play two six foot guards off the bench?
Ive thought about this.
1.)you can do this because you have multiple good defenders that you can pair them with. And two bigs who can be great rim protectors.
2.) im seeing teams going small with their 1-2-3. Namely, OKC that used a 3 guard line-up. Which was the league’s best 5 man unit. Mavs also used a 3 guard line-up during the playoffs with Doncic-Seth-THJ, the magic recently run a J Cole-Fultz-MCW trio. Yup, size wise we’re small but my point is you can now have a couple of small negative defenders if you can compensate it with speed and offense.
3.) you can run defensive scheme to mask it like zone defense (how Mia able to play defense with negative defenders, both Herro and Robinson on the court) or do how they would play against us when we try to dump the ball to biid. Make it hard for them to make the entry pass or to set-up their man (pre-switch) then once their man gets the ball, you double the guy and let the shotclock work against them.
4.) you’re going up against back-up players. It’s more of an issue if you are running a maxey-seth unit to start and end games.
^ then both guys would play with either pairs.
