    About all I would do is give the players a max of 30 minutes per game.

    Anyone remember Dahntay making his rep in Denver by embracing the enforcer role vs Chris Paul in the playoffs? Seems to me that it would make a whole lot of sense for us to sic him on Derrick Rose this time around. Assuming of course the Bulls hold on to the top seed. No one else on the team seems like a suitable defensive matchup for Rose.

    The problem there is that Collison would be forced to cover the bigger SG. Fortunately, SG is a weak spot for the Bulls (Bogans/Korver/Brewer) so maybe we can get away with it, some of the time anyway.

    We shouldn't throw in the towel and risk continuity nor should we play balls out and risk injury. Overall I would equate these last 3 games to really intense practices.

    Good point wintermute

    Now is the time for DJ to back up that reputation

    Really Rose is going to destroy whoever we put on him, but DJ might be the best option, or Rush

    I really want to win at least one more game just to say we've improved from our highest 36 win total since not being in the playoffs.

    Hopefully we finally beat the Hawks and win the series against the Knicks.

    It was Kobe he is really know for they called him the Kobe Stopper the year they went to the ECF. Kobe had a terrible series vs DJ.

    He should start preparing the team for the Bulls. Try to work on things they will need to do against the Bulls. Try to use the lineups you expect to use against the Bulls.

    As far as resting the starters. LOL, that is only valid for teams that expect to go far in the playoffs, who either have injured or really tired star players.

    A team like the pacers no way. Plus we play Friday, Sunday both at home and then Wednesday - that is an easy schedule as far as number of games. \

    The only thing maybe I would do if I were Frank is maybe in the Magic game play the starters or best players a little less
    In doing so, do you risk showing the Bulls too much?

    I dont think so. Thibss is supposed to be a workaholic. I bet he will watch every minute of the Pacers vs Bulls games from this year, at least once

    P.S. The Pacers are NOT in the same position as the Colts. They really can't afford to upset ticket holders. I say, the starters should play no more than 28 minutes. It gives everyone what they want.
