It should have been no surprise to any basketball person that Kyle Lowry benefited greatly from Bargnaniís mere presence on the court late in that Sacramento game.

Dwane even mentioned it when the discussion got around to Ed Davisís role in the Kings game.

ďWe needed spacing for Kyle to get to the bucket; Andrea would space the floor for us. Eddie would have been our next option but with (Bargnaniís) three-point shooting, it would space the floor for Kyle to get into the paint because he had it going.Ē

Tell me that doesnít make sense. You canít.

Right from the article, that's why Casey puts Bargnani at the 3 point line. He's been doing it all year, and it's backfired for the most part, as Bargnani's 3 point shooting has been declining over the years. Yes it did help Lowry get to the bucket with the spacing, but they should put him low post, similar to last year.
