Yes I said it, and no I'm serious. Only exception is when the Pacers play Shaq, I would be in favor of starting Pollard.
The question of Foster vs Croshere comes down to this. Foster plays equally well whether he starts or comes off the bench. Croshere plays a lot better as a starter. That is a flaw in Croshere's game and perhaps he should not be rewarded for it, but I think the team would be better with Croshere starting. Not because the team is really better with Cro in there, but because Cro will fall back almost out of the rotation if he doesn't start, and there are times we need Croshere's offense at the power forward position.
As far as who finishes, it depends on the matchups and depends on the score in the last 5 minutes. If the Pacers are behind by more than 5 points, and the matchups are not terrible, then I would be in favor of Croshere finishing, if Pacers trail by less than 5 or lead then Foster should finish
Of course this end of game scenerio does not take into account the very end when the other team is fouling, in that case Cro should finish, but teams generally don't start fouling until the last 40 seconds.
Croshere it is up to you to keep up your excellent play.
I think the more difficult question is whose minutes get cut when Foster does come back. Certainly Cro's will be cut even if he starts, but that is only about 10-15 minutes and we know Jeff will play more than that.
The additional 10-15 minutes that Jeff will take away from someone other than Croshere has to either come from Harrison or Granger (or I suppose it could come from Fred as Ron could play more backup shooting guard, but I think this is highly unlikely knowing Carlisle) Whose minutes should be cut, DG and DH or maybe both. I suppose J.O could play a few less minutes but that is not likely.
