I couldn't be less excited about a Ford-Rush-Granger-McRoberts-Hibbert starting five. Thank god it's the Clippers! That said, this is exactly the type of game we lose--the one we are supposed to win.

Hopefully he plays well enough to keep the spot.

HUH, what lineup do you want? Collison is injured, Hansbrough should still get plenty of minutes. Aside from those two variables this is our optimum lineup.

That's very offensively challenged starting 5. There should be absolutely no excuse for them to play bad defense though.

oh wow..I came in here ready to congratulate JOB for making a good choice...

Oh well, congrats to Dun! Hopefully we'll see a little bit of George..I won't be shocked though if we end up with a cute little "TJ/AJ backcourt"

Also, depending on which Rush shows up and which Dun shows up, the lineup with Dun can at times be just as offensively challenged.

I'm not upset about the lineup choice. I just don't like most of the guys in it.

Yeah, me either. I'm interested to see what kind of minutes George will get tonight.

What is that you say? No Dunleavy! Good heavens! How will our offense survive without his immaculate basketball IQ, and flawless backdoor cuts? Moreover, I shudder at the thought of our team defense collapsing without his cat-like reflexes and spidey-sense to save the day.

(seriously though, congrats to the dunleavy family!)

Nice, hopefully Dunleavy is out for a week

I'd like to see some advanced statistics on just how much better the defense supposedly is when Rush is on the court as opposed to Dunleavy. Same with the offense. I'd like to know how much of an impact those guys make on defense and offense.

I think is going to be hard to know that when playing a team like the Clippers.

I'm talking the previous games. Really small sample size though. Maybe even go back to last season.

Rush hasn't played enough this year for any meaningful statistical analysis.

You think that JO'B may call up Dunleavy from the hospital to see if he can make it in to close out the game? ;)

Cool for Mike.

Hopefully Rush has a good game.

Well, it seems as if this is a tiny tiny sample size to see if Mike brings more to the table than he doesn't.

A very, very, very small sample size albeit. One game compared to all the other ones this season.

I prefer mike to be an offensive sparkplug off the bench. Given how streaky he is he could win us some games by coming in on fire, while his defensive liabilities would be kept away from roy and the other starters, maximizing their efficiency. Plus with the lack of scorers off our bench dun's movement could open things up for the more limited players.

In the right situation dun could be an elite 6th man.
