Finally Reddick gets back on the bench where he belongs... getting Pietrus back goes a long way towards upgrading at SG and having a realistic shot in the playoffs

No log jam.

Lee starts. Pietrus off the bench first. J.J. sparingly. K-Bo none.

MP, then CLee, JJ/KBo depending upon the matchup. I love Lee but he's not ready yet. MP is gonna turn it on and surprise.

Sixx,

The only reason I am not sure is because when MP came back after the first injury, he didn't start:

Lee not ready?? I dont know...but if he keeps playing consistently, by playoffs time he will be ready most definitely.

Besides, Its good to have a log jam the way it is.
MP is foul and injury prone for now and we need at least 2 of them to cover his play.
Almost similar to Dooling/Arroyo for Jameer.
I LOVE IT!

I agree in that it is good to have a log jam of sorts, as long as the long jam involves a player playing somewhat close to how Pietrus did last night, along with 2 others playing as well as Lee & Redick have lately.

Lee fits well with the cast of starters that we have. He doesn't need the ball and can hit the open shot, plus plays good defense. Pietrus off the bench is instant offense, a guy who can create his own shot whether slashing to the rim, or jump shooting. Pietrus also plays good defense. Lee is not a player whose game is mature enough yet to get his own shot therefore he needs to be on the floor with the starters.

Not sure when the FA trade deadline is, but do anyof you see any possibility of the Magic making any moves?

there is no logjam...peitrus and c lee are the only SG's on the roster who should see the court. jj is a awful 1 on 1 defender and isnt wet enough from three yet to make up for it...bogans, i shouldnt even have to describe him other than he wouldnt see the court on the cavs, celtics, or lakers teams. and as far as frenchy and courtney go, i dont know how good they are as it is. french is an outcast from the warriors who chose to go with KA and belinelli over peitrus who is inconsistant on both ends. and c lee is a rook who cant creat his own shot. let me know when you have a real backup at shooting guard like the warriors do with Jamal crawford, monta ellis, steven jackson, azibuike, and belinelli. or like the pistons do with Rip hamilton, stuckey, and AI. or like utah has a backup of white guys on thier team (is it just me or do they have way to many to win a champiionship)?
