Idk what games you were watching but in the fourth our lack of a three forced Derozan to play it while barbosa played the two, and when this happened he got wrecked. Okay maybe wrecked is an over exaggeration but he did have trouble and suggesting Derozan defend the three the majority of the game will leave him too tired to be productive on the offensive end. Not only that, like I previously mentioned, it will hinder his development. For example he won't have dribble as much, so he won't develop a handle.
