Our current rotation in a nutshell is:
What should Frank Vogel adjust after break to fix some problems with our rotations? Here are some current issues:
1.) Our perimeter defense in the starting lineup is horrid. DC/Dunleavy/Granger is not a good fit.
2.) Our starting lineup is having some problems chemistry wise. A lot of that has to do with DC and Dunleavy struggling right now though. What do we adjust to keep us from getting down early?
3.) Paul George, Dahntay Jones, and Brandon Rush are playing well. Who's the odd man out?
4.) Lance Stephenson hasn't played this season. What's his role?
5.) Mike has played very poorly since Vogel took over. Do we stick with Dun, or do we reduce his role considerably?
Here is what I would do after AS break:
Here are a couple of things though:
-I think that if we start George it would rack up DC's assist numbers as well as improve his playmaking. Dunleavy, Rush, or even Jones can't properly fill the lanes (Dun isn't athletic enough, Rush insists on staying at the wing, and Jones tries to run the break every time). If we get a couple of fast break opportunities, DC and George could make some good connections.
-I am tempted to want to move Hansbrough into the starting lineup because of our lack of scoring. Problem is that his defensive awareness is not where it needs to be right now.
-I want Rush to play backup small forward. I like Dunleavy more as a player, but he's been averaging like 6.5 ppg on poor shooting since Vogel took over. It's been bad. Brandon Rush is a better spot up shooter and he can come in and hit a three or two a game which is good. He's really a 2, but Dahntay and George have been playing so well it is difficult to jam Rush in there. I really think that Rush can play well backing up Danny. He is eased of pressure and he can play defense and hit shots coming off of screens or spotting up. Lance is behind all of the shooting guards.
-I really hate to keep Mike out of the rotation.. There's just so many options and he has to most weaknesses that are tough to mask. We may miss his movement and shooting off of screens though some games.
Soo... What would you guys do if you were Frank Vogel?
